I would guess, since I do not know your network setting, that you have switched you settings for your DNS IP addresses from "Automatically Obtained" to manual. If this is the case you can do one of three things.
1) Set it back to "Automatic" and let your ISPs DNS server handle it.
2) Go into your Router's setup page and retrieve your ISP's DNS IP addresses and manually configure the setting.
3) Use Public DNS Servers to resolve your IP addresses. These servers are located around the world and are available free of charge.
NOTE: Only use the Tier 2 severs. Tier 0 and Tier 1 are off limits to the End User.

I love how the error message tells you to click a repair button that isn't even there.

After I've right clicked on the network connection icon in the notification area and chosen repair, I physically unplug the modem and router, go have a cup of coffee. I reboot the computer and plug the power back in on the Windows splash screen.

Someone more knowledgable could give the technical reasons this method occasionally works (forces the modem to renew its lease, resets the router etc) but not me. I think it's magic. If electrical deprivation doesn't do the trick, then I would follow the excellent advice given by acklan, above.

:whistling: Yep there I go again.. running straight to third base instead of starting at first. Johanna's solution is the first and proper first step to starting to solve the problem. It more than likely will be all you need.
