Preferred Solution: DNS Server Isnt Responding

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Assuming it's actually the DNS server (and that is a very specific error message) - try this:

Hi.

Im a new user here and I just registered to see if you guys can give me any help. In the last few days my router has started playing up. I cant connect to the internet on my laptop or my PS3.

I can connect to the wireless network Ive been using but when I connect to it in the bottom left of my screen it says the network has no internet access. I tried doing the Windows problem solver and it says that the problem is that "The DNS server isnt responding". When i try to go online on my PS3 it says there has been a DNS error also so it must be something to do with the router.

Ive tried all the basic stuff like resetting the router with a pin in the reset button but I still get the same message. Ive also tried using another router with no success.

Here is a few screen shots below of my command prompt, my control panel and my routers homepage. Hopefully somebody can spot a problem and can walk me through the fix. Please keep it simple though as im not the best at understanding computer talk

A:The DNS Server Isnt Responding

Have you went to your ISP's homepage to check their dns server addresses.

Try using these as your DNS servers. Log into your router and enter these.

primary 208.67.222.222
secondary 208.67.220.220

Manually enter those server addresses into your Ps3. You should be up and running. Let me know how it goes.

Hey.
My wifi working well all the time i didnt have any problems till last night. So i troubleshooted it and it showed me this i put a picture for it because i dont know much about computers. But i never had any problems like this before. So what do i do?

A:DNS server isnt responding.

Hi kikucis,

Please try to disable the 'firewall' (anti-virus) and check results. If that fixes the issue, 'restore firewall defaults' if possible. Else re-install it.

If changing 'firewall settings' does not impact the 'internet connectivity', try different DNS server settings:

- Go the 'Control Panel' > Click 'Network and Internet' , then 'Network and Sharing Center' , then 'Manage network connections' > Right-click 'Wireless Network Connection', and click 'Properties' > Select the 'Networking tab'; click 'Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)' > click 'Properties' > Click 'Advanced' and select the 'DNS tab'.
- If there are any IP addresses listed in the Preferred DNS server or Alternate DNS server , write them down for future reference > Replace those addresses with the IP addresses of the Google DNS servers: 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 > Save settings and recheck results (Note: This work around has shown some positive results in some cases in similar situations)

Hope this helps.

For some reason I cannot make the DNS Server address remain when I do a restart. I can easily change it to one that works but every time I restart the computer, it reverts to the old address: 198.101.13.115 Any ideas why? I ran virus scans and spyware scans but nothing seems to help. Its been like this for 4 days now so I doubt its a server problem.

Any security software that would be protecting the settings?

Hi all,
I'm at the end of my rope. I moved recently and have been unable to get my wireless internet working. I am running Windows 7 Home Professional on my Sony Vaio laptop. When I connect directly to my Comcast cable internet box, I get internet connection. (That's how I'm posting now.) However, when I try to connect to my wireless network, I cannot get online. Local Access Only is what I get.

I have a Cisco Linksys WRT320n wireless dual band router. I can access the admin page when I directly connect to the router.

I've tried every suggestion I can find online to solve this. Windows Troubleshooter told me "Wireless network connection doesn't have a valid ip configuration" so I released and renewed my IP, updated my router firmware, reset it to default settings, disable IP helper in Services, and about 5 other things. None of that worked so I changed my security mode from WPA to WEP after finding that as a "solution" on another forum. Now I get the following Troubleshooter message:
"The DNS server isnt responding." Online solutions for this suggest uninstalling and reinstalling all the hidden windows network drivers in Device Manager. Did that, nothing.

I've been at this for over a week and cannot get my wifi to work. I've tried connecting on another laptop that has Vista and cannot connect wirelessly there either so maybe it's the router? It';s practically brand new!

Hey all,

I have two problems with two employees. They both are connecting by vpn with the ATT Global network client from their homes. These Both employees are using outlook 2000. They are both behind personal routers. They can both browse the Internet and intranet web pages with no problems.

One of the employees can connect with no problem but after ten minutes only her outlook stops responding.

The other, her exchange server will no respond. She is able to ping it successfully. Created several new profiles have no effect or even simply trying a check name.

Any help on these two problems?
 

A:Outlook problems: exchange server not responding and not responding after 10 minutes

1) Are they on company or personal machines? If personal could this be a personal firewall issue?

2) Are they connecting wirelessly? Have they try connecting wired and see if it makes a difference.

3) I haven't used Outlook 2K in a long time, but I remember there being a setting about how to behave when using a slow connection. Something like tools, send receive, send receive settings. I think one of the options was to basically do nothing. You might poke around in those settings and see what you find.

We are implementing a new WiFi system here at work and I am having issues creating a new VLAN on my router that goes to my onprem DHCP server. I have verified already that my new Meraki APs are working with my RADIUS server when I tag the SSID with my current VLAN that works. I have attached my router config as well as 1 of my network closets. What is missing?

I also have to work with a 3rd party because the router is managed by them. Any help would be appreciated. I believe the DHCP server is fine because I just added another IP range in the same subnet.

You on a Wired or Wifi Connection?

Check your network connections and see if there is more than one connection active. If you see something named thing "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter" and its not connected, turn it off and that should fix it.

If not one thing you can see is if you take the machine to another Internet connection to see if the problem persists. Also do the reverse, have a friend bring in a laptop to connect to your internet connection and see if it might be a problem with your ISP.

Something else to consider is try doing things in safe mode with networking. Are you able to use the internet at all in safe mode, if so its possible you might have a DNS Changer on your computer that just tells you it can't connect to anything.

Check your browser settings to see if you are using a proxy at all.

If safe mode still doesn't work, look for something called MiniXP which is a USB Bootable to run computer diagnostics with, somewhat similar to Mac's bootable hard drives. Run some virus scans and see if anything pops up.

For some reason your DNS server is pointing back to your machines IP rather than the default gateway. It's not showing a proper DNS server.

You should go into your IPv4 properties and enter two DNS servers there like Google's DNS 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4, or you can remove the DNS entry in the IPv4 properties and enter the DNS servers into your routers settings for DNS servers.

Good afternoon,
I have not been able to connect to the internet for several days in normal mode, although it works fine in safe mode. I had a technician here yesterday from the cable company and he was trying to help out some. I've also been reading various forums to try to find a solution but no luck yet. I have run a virus scan as well as Spybot and Malware Bytes to see if that was the problem. Some of the other solutions I've read about are confusing because I don't know what a lot of it means, and I don't want to change something without receiving some sort of direction. I consider myself somewhat tech savvy but obviously not when it comes to this! So, can anyone help? I've attached the ipconfig file. I am using a cable modem with a splitter. Let me know if you need any other info.

I am getting the 'DNS Server isn't responding error' on my Sony computer. I have a wireless router from Verizon FIOS.

I took my Sony to McDonalds, to see if the problem was with my computer or the router, and apparently it is my computer, as I could not connect to McDonalds wifi.

It also does not help to plug the ethernet cable directly into the computer.

I did try specifying the DNS server IP as noted in previous searches, but to no avail.

As an added note, our Toshiba did seem to lose it's wireless connection also, but I plugged it into the ethernet cable and it worked fine. As of this evening, I unplugged the cable from the Toshiba, and it seems to be working fine.

Hoping someone can help me this evening!

I own a Dell Inspiron 1545 with Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64bit). Last night i was browsing the internet fine before i shut my laptop down. An hour later, i decided to do something on my laptop and started it up again, but could not get online - through Ethernet or Wireless. I chalked it up to ISP problems (i have optimum online) and seeing as how I can go online on my tablet (where i'm posting from now), shut the laptop down and went to bed. This morning, i decided to troubleshoot and i got the DNS server message. I was wondering if anyone here would be so kind to help.

So after the change of the WEP encryption key, there is another issue that emerged out of nowhere again. This time it's the DNS server error, and other windows in our house can connect except for me. I can enter the security key this time however the wireless icon indicates a exclamation mark icon overlapping it. I tried using cmd and typed ipconfig /flushdns, ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew with a reboot afterwards, changed the Internet Protocol Version 4 and 6 on their DNS server address settings, reseting the router and configuring the network adapter but it doesn't work. Although, the window 7 can sense the internet and connect it but the result came up "DNS server error" and "DNS cannot communicate with the resource error".

I currently don't hold the real password for the router, however I managed to retrieved the old WEP password for the router. My cousin has the password, whenever he types the password now which I don't know at this stage doesn't work (Security Key Mismatch) and when I secretly tried the old password, it worked but with an exclamation mark on the wireless icon.

Any of you guise know what the hell is going on with the router or my window 7?
Sorry for the rant, because I'm starting to fed up with these kind of issues.

A:DNS server not responding...

Hi Nokino,

You might want to verify that you really have the correct pass-phrase, doesn't seems like it though.
Also, try removing all your wireless network profiles then re-add the SSID and the correct pass-phrase for the WEP. One thing to be considered in a near future..... is changing your network security to WPA2 with AES encryption, for a lot more secured network.

Have you tried to use Google DNS? They are as follows.

DNS is 8.8.8.8 and ADNS is 8.8.4.4

You may use them as exchanged too.

Hello,

The next time you get the error do the following. Click Start, run. Type 'cmd'. In the command prompt type 'ipconfig /all' and post the details back here.

What model router do you have?

Try changing the DNS on your router to googles (8.8.8.8) and see if that corrects the problem.

hey everybody,

I've looked through these forums and other ones and have tried all the things I've found aside from doing anything to the router seeing as I don't have control over it. But, recently my internet got really slow so I tried to fix that but could only get it to work over ethernet. Now, however, my internet doesn't work for my laptop at all through both ethernet and WiFi. (I am currently connected through tethering on my G1) I've tried "ipconfig /flushdns" , deleting and reinstalling the drivers, disabling/ uninstalling AVG, virus scans, using openDNS, reboot. Nothing has worked so far and I'm not sure I want to go back to Linux and set up my drivers again.

If it helps here is my ipconfig /all

With windows Network Diagnostics, sometimes "The DNS server isn't responding", and sometimes "Local Area Connection/Wireless Network Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration".

- resetting the wireless router
- ensured obtaining IP address and DNS server address are obtained automatically for Internet Protocol V4 and V6
- netsh int ip reset (CMD)
- netsh winsock reset (CMD)
- ipconfig /renew and ipconfig /release (CMD) (the latter gives me the following error message on my laptop: "An error has occured while renewing interface Wireless Network Connection : unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out.")

My internet has been very slow for several months now. I have Comcast and I'm on a laptop with wireless. The signal strength says excellent, but pages load very slowly most of the time. It goes through phases where it doesn't want to load anything at all. When I try to diagnose the connection it either says there isn't a problem or that the DNS server isn't responding. I'm not great with computers so I thought it might be easier to ask for help before trying a bunch of remedies that might make things worse.

A:DNS Server not responding

Hello missdahlia87 Welcome to the Seven Forums!

Surprizingly this is usually a quick fix by one of a few methods since the problem is far more common then most realize. The first thing any ISP(Internet Service Provider) will advise is simply unplugging the cable modem for a good 20 seconds or so while the desktop or laptop is shut down. Often the further advixe when hard wired would be unplugging the ethernet cable as well.

A simple restart may get you right back online while at times the Ipconfig /release and Ipconfig /new commands entered at the command can be a help in resetting and re-establishing a private IP address again once the modem resyncs with the ISP.

Your configuration is the same as always to note here however while the time out factor to reach your home page isn't being met. Sometimes clearing out the IE or other browser's offline content being the cache and temporary internet files as well as looking over the advanced IE settings to see if the automatic network discovery box is checked off can also help.

With anything misconfigured and then suddenly configured correctly or when the connection is restored you may see the prompt screen for selecting Home, Work, or Publc appear where you simply click on the Home option to get back underway again. As far as Comcast being slow at times the particular time of day or night can play a role as far as how populated the host servers are by internet traffic.

Don't you love the promises of faster speeds and then ru... Read more

Did an ipconfig /all. PC is assigned an IP address... 192.168.xx.123 (preferred) DNS is 192.168.xx.240. I can ping the DNS server from the PC that cannot see the DNS server and get a clean response. From my PC I can ping the offending PC, and from the offending PC, I can ping my PC.

I've reset router and cable modem. On the offending PC, I've done a dnsflush,, reset winsock and ipv4 stack, all to no avail.

I can't see any difference and yet this one PC cannot access Exchange, nor browse. ipconfig /all results attached.

Usually the router will provide both DNS and DHCP services, so try changing the DNS IP to 192.168.25.1

Do you have the IPv4 set to automatic or are you assigning static IPs?

Hello.
 
A few days ago we changed from our old modem and router to a new modem and router in one. There are four laptops in the house and since then, all has been well on every laptop except for one. This one laptop can connect to the new network, but is not getting any internet access through the network. The troubleshooter shows the message "Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (DNS server) is not responding".
 
The laptop can gain access to the internet when an Ethernet cable is connected, but is not getting any wireless access at all. It's a 4 year old Dell Studio laptop running a 64 bit Windows 7.
 
I have tried contacting my service provider but their only response was basically to tell me to get a new laptop. Is there no hope at all? Any help you can give me would be much appreciated.

A:DNS Server is not Responding

If it stopped working right after you changed out the router/modem, I'd probably chalk it up to a configuration issue somewhere.
 
Make sure that DNS is also being automatically configured (unless there is a reason it shouldn't be, but usually there isn't).
 
1. Open the "network and sharing center" in the control panel, and then click on "change adapter settings" on the left-hand side of the screen.
2. Right-click "Wireless LAN adapter", and then click "properties".
3. Double-click "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IP v4)"
4. Check "obtain DNS server addresses automatically" if it is not checked.
5. If you changed the setting in step 4, restart the computer to ensure that it sends/receives another DHCP request/reply.
 
If that doesn't fix it, try reinstalling your wireless driver. While there might not be a problem with the driver itself, reinstalling it usually forces every setting within the driver back to its original state.

them can connect to the internet (Belkin Modem). When i troubleshoot the problem i get a 'DNS server not responding' error message. We just had a technician from our Internet service provider come round and he was able to connect to the internet
with his modem. I have since then connected my laptop directly to two separate modems (Netgear and Belkin) on separate occasions and both times i received the same error message. I get the same error again when i repeat the previous
step with my dads laptop.
 
Could someone please help...

Hello,
in IP addressing settings of your computer, set 4.2.2.2 or your ISP DNS server as primary DNS server. Once done, try again.
If this does not help, post the output of
