Just bought a wireless router, hardwired it into my desktop, my isp is on DSL not cable. I haven't had any problems with the desktop getting on the internet, but I am having a problem getting on with my laptop (both XP). With my laptop, I login on and connect to the router with no problem. I am unable to connect to the internet using explorer. I have a error message, "DNS error" unable to connect.

My laptop is set to Dynamic for the DNS, is it something I am missing in the router settings.

Don't by any chance have Norton Firewall installed do you? I recently tried to get my grandaughter's laptop to use my internet connection via my wireless router. Wouldn't connect even though it found the router and showed a strong wireless signal. I then noticed Norton Firewall was installed on her laptop, which I hate with a vengeance. I uninstalled it, made sure Windows Firewall was enabled, then rebooted. The connection now works no problem.
