Windows 7: DNS Server not responding

Hey capt, are those DNS servers typed into your routers DNS settings or did you type them into your IPv4 properties?

Usually when the DNS is coming from the router it shows the default gateway and this usually works best.

Thanks for the replay Rob !

I entered under DNS Server in router as well as under IPv4 properties. (Found that step under OpenDNS website) I didn't enter it IPv6 Properties. Just to restate the issue. That error doesn't happen all the time it intermittent.

I've seen conflicts when entering the DNS in both the Ipv4 and routers settings. It seems to work best when entering the info only in the router's settings. The ipconfig would show the DNS server address as the default gateway when you do that.

Have you tried delating the DNS from IPv4 properties and only entering the DNS addresses in your router's settings?

Hi there !

I found something interesting today. This issue comes mostly when I turn on my desktop Computer in the same Network. It's a peer to peer connection. The issues stays for maybe 2 mins the connection restores. Once I shutdown the Desktop it works fine. Do you think it might be some kind of conflict.

Thanks,
Captain

By chance are you doing any MAC address cloning? Do you have DNS installed on your Desktop? or DNS in a VM on the Desktop?

Once I was setting up a server in VM and installed DNS and DHCP on that VM server and could not figure out why all the computers stopped working. I had a DUH moment. Once the VM was off everything worked perfectly.
