Windows 7: DNS?

DNS?

Currently, when I go into my IPv4 settings, its set-up like this.


However, when I set the DNS to obtain automatically, I can't connect to anything anymore.

There are 2 PC's here, one is mine, and they are connected to the same modem through a router.

Are you using the Window Classic UI?

Asking because that looks like an XP window, not a Windows 7 window.

The 2nd show shows your DNS server has a IPV6 address. No idea why though but that is why it doesn;t work.

''ipconfig -flushdns'' did not help.

Would still like to see all the output from ipconfig /all. Try this:

Click on Start then Run and paste the following into the Run box, exactly as show, including double quotes:

cmd /c "ipconfig /all > postme.txt & ping yahoo.com >> postme.txt & notepad postme.txt & del postme.txt"

and press ENTER.

A file will open in Notepad. Please copy and paste the contents here. Close the Notepad window and the file will be deleted and the Command Prompt window will also close.
