K here is the problem...
I was at the library of my university trying to connect wirelessly to internet.
So I connected no problem, and tried to open "Internet Explorer". It started to go to the university's homepage and error pops up...then i tried other sites...they all wouldn't work...

Now that it is summer, I came home and tried to connect wireless at my house.
But again, the same problem...I wondered y cause I was connected to the internet.

And then somehow, I put an IP address (ie. 67.899.393.32) and then the site started to work.
After all those trouble, I was able to browse through internet by their IP address.

I figured that I had some DNS resolving issue. But How do you fix it?
I really need this fixed as soon as possible so I can work at university...
Please help!

Thank you for reading

Have you checked that the DNS server adresses are being obtained automatically? From the Control Panel choose Network Connections. Now, right click your wireless connection and choose Properties. From the new window opened, choose Interner Protocol (TCP/IP) and click properties. Now make sure that "Obtain DNS server automatically" is selected.

after checking those settings try start > run > cmd > ipconfig /flushdns then ipconfig /registerdns then ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew and see if that helps

that message is pretty useless for most userss...it's just telling you that as it adds dns records that there will be a message in event viewer...though if there were a dns error it would be there too

start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.

not a one of them...the only one that's remotely related to your issue is that internet explorer application hang...

you gave me a yes answer to a multiple choice question by the way...was that info from the system tab...or the applications tab in event viewer?
