Dns server problem

im having trouble with my internet. it says dns server isnt responding. does that mean windows, router, or the internet causin this??

some times i just turn off my router and turn it back on and the internet works for like 15 mins and craps out after and i get disconnected from online games too.

i am using a wireless adapter on my computer and running windows 7
does the computer that the router is connected to have to be updated os?? (currently using xp)

Welcome to SevenForums

Run an ipconfig /all from command prompt and post results.

Start>cmd type ipconfig /all

No, the OS has nothing to do with it.

A lot of the time Windows will use automatic settings for network connections but sometimes, for reasons unknown to Science and Religion these automated parameters just confuse the hell out of Windows.

It is possible to configure these manually however, and I can provide a walkthrough if required.

Something very interesting I'm seeing here is you have two DNS addresses which are the default router IPs. is usually Netgear, and 1.1 is usually Linksys. Do you have either of these, both, or have changed recently?

What's also interesting is that your default/primary DNS seems to be the Linksys (at while your DHCP is set as (Netgear).

On your computer I want you to open up your browser and type into the address bar first Let me know what it says.
Then try and again, let me know what it says.

After that we'll move on to manually configuring your wireless connection settings in Windows.

That's what I was thinking was that the 2 different units are conflicting with different networks.

How do you have them hooked up?

You need to have your secondary plugged into a LAN port (1-4) not the WAN port and also turn off your dhcp on the secondary router and let your main handle it.

To do that log into your secondary router or 1.1 which ever is what and disable the dhcp should be under routing or dhcp or dvanced can't remember, and power cycle the modem. You can still use the wireless on it. Just your main modem will be handling all your network requirements. DHCP, DNS

Also disable your microsoft virtual wifi mini adapter.
