Windows 7: Constantly getting "server not found" from different browsers

Constantly getting "server not found" from different browsers

I've been surfing the web as usual with no changes in settings, and as of 2 or 3 days ago, I have been bombarded with server not found error messages. I have seen this with Firefox and Google Chrome. I have tried doing a dnsflush in cmd prompt and I changed my settings in firefox to automatically detect network proxy settings. I am hooked up to a wireless router, then to the dsl modem. I have resetted both, and still same results. Any ideas to solve this??
