A DNS error is when a Domain Name Server can not be found. It is most likely a problem on their end and patience is the only solution to the problem.

Unless you know how to use a different DNS server. Comcast screws up all the time and I have to use the DNS server from Speakeasy.

I’m attempting, now, to connect my laptop to my wireless internet, and I am getting a dns error. Anybody help.

pplufthesun's avatar

so, if it is a problem with my wireless internet, is it possible I can fix it or is it just waiting?

Power everything down on the network for a few minutes. Unplug everything and wait about two minutes and plug them back in. See if that helps.

You are having problems with multiple devices? Sounds like the router or your ISP.

I tried that, um it is with multiple devices and it hasn’t been working now for about 3 hours.

I am running on XP SP2 with a linksys 2.4 ghz router and internet provided by cox. if that helps

when I attempt to run Ipconfig, it shows up for less than a second and displays text very quickly then closes

The Page Cannot Be Displayed . . . Cannot Find Server or DNS Error

CAUSE: The Certificate Services 2.0 Root Certificate Authority Certificate is bound to IIS as a Server Certificate. During the installation of Certificate Services 2.0, a Root Certificate Authority Certificate is generated for the server. This certificate is used by Certificate Services only.

RESOLUTION: Use the Server Certificate Wizard in IIS to remove the current certificate. Generate a new request by performing the steps in the following Knowledge Base article: 228821 microsoft is lame. anyways this sums it all up to why u get DNS. sound’s like someone’s got u tetherd and using your pc as a mirror. all u need to do is have ur ISP change your ip, by law they have to. retsrat ur pc reboot your router and vula a ok.
