Windows cant communicate with primary DNS Server !

Hello Guys,
Three days ago i installed fresh copy of win 7 (activated).everything was working fine but once cuz of slow speed of wired internet (happens sometimes only),i switched to wireless modem given by a phone company.

Immediately after putting there was no internet access.i took out the modem,put the wire again but the windows was not able to connect to internet.After troubleshooting i got this message:-

Problems found !
Windows cant communicate witht he device or resource
(primary DNS server)

Somebody please help me cuz i dont want to switch back to vista and without internet my work will be compromised.

Thanks in advance !!!

If you are not going to be using the wireless modem from the phone company uninstall the software that came with it. I have seen Verizon's VZAccess cause problems like this.
