Windows 7: DNS Server not found (Anak)

Anak, one tiny question... In your router, look for DNS server. Cheap routers usually acts as DNS proxy (99.999% of the time). If you can find DNS in your router, try putting Google's DNS to it, and switch back DNS server TCP/IP property to "Obtain DNS server automatically" and renew the leash...

If it doesn't work, you can always switch back...

Hi! zzz2496,

I accessed the setup page for my router, and made the changes you suggested.

As soon as I clicked apply/okay in my network adapter settings IE8 told me that I lost the internet connection, but the internet icon in the lower right of the taskbar never changed, it still told me that I had internet access.

All I did then was to close, and then re-start my browser, and I am now using those settings as I reply to your request.

Will try new settings.

But z, a tiny question...........

Can you iterate the advantages/disadvantages to this arraignment?

The advantage would be "simple", it's simpler to setup as such than to edit each computer and enter DNS server info to each and every computer manually. Btw, I set my router as such so that I only put my router as DNS server, it will forward any DNS query request to whatever DNS server I put in my router's DNS server config.
