Hopefully this is the right part of the forum that I am asking in. But as the title says my DNS server is not responding. I've researched this a little and still haven't found a solution for this problem. Thanks in advance :D

Change your DNS servers to:

8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

(Google's DNS servers).

Or, to:

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

(OpenDNS.org DNS servers)

Hi and thanks for the help, but this isn't working for me. At fist I was using openDNS.org, but now i changed it to Google and it still doesn't fix it. My troubleshooter keeps telling me this error, maybe there is just something wrong with that? i'm not to sure.
