DNS Server Isn't Responding - Wireless Icon Flashing Orange
Apr 13, 2012
My internet has been dropping out over and over. Im connected via ether cable on my desktop with windows seven to my belkin router however on the router the wireless icon is flashing orange indicating something wrong. I rang my internet provider and they said its not them, when I troubleshooted the problem it came up with DNS server isnt responding. I tried looking through posts and tried restoring my router to factory default but nothing has worked.
I have a question, I have an ap (cisco 1130) that began to get the status light flashing orange and light Ethernet and radio are off.I did a factory reset and it was ok ... past 3 days the problem has happened again.I changed the ap with a new but the situation remained.I tested the wiring and everything is ok.the switch port is set up correctly.
I upgraded then downgraded from 2.00 to 2.03 back down to 2.00, and whenever I'm doing about 600kB/s+ it resets itself. Drops connection drops wireless, wired, and the globe internet icon goes Lambert/orange. I've reset the router to default and it still does that. What could be the cause?
I've done a lot of changing around, disabling unicast, changing from WPA Auto to WPA2, etc etc, I just changed the router to Netgear WGR614 v7 and it works perfectly fine now.
I read somewhere this is to show that the connection is unstable? My modem works fine, and it works fine being plugged directly into my PC.
But going through the modem, I am noticing some drops in speed and spikes of high latency. This icon - the little earth/internet icon - has never flashed for a long period of time before. I've power cycled it (unplugged for over 5 mins) and it persists.
Does it need a firmware upgrade? Is it something I did? Faulty hardware?
I setup my Windows 8 desktop for a PPTP VPN server so I can connect my iPhone 5 to it.Using the Cisco Connect Firmware, as I was having internet speed issues with the Smart Wi-Fi Firmware and I wasn't loving the interface of the Smart Wifi Firmware anyway.According to the router the firmware is up to date. All three VPN settings are enabled.PC is set to a static IP internally. 192.168.1.116 to be precise.PPTP port forwarding (1723) is set to the PC's static IP, though I have tried without port forwarding and it didn't work either.If I have my iPhone connected to the wireless network and point it to the internal IP address of the PC, I can connect to the VPN.If I bypass my router and hook my desktop directly to the modem (and point my iPhone to the IP that gets assigned to my desktop from my ISP) I can connect to the VPN.But if I have everything hooked up normally and try to connect to the VPN from my iPhone (using the IP address my ISP assigned to the router), I get a PPTP server not responding error.
I was able to connect this mornin, and suddenly it just didn't work. I checked and it said DNS server isn't responding. tried using the Open DNS 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168 But it is still not working and showing the same error.
I have a problem with my internet. Not so long time ago I bought new TOSHIBA laptop with Windows 7. At the start everything was OK but after few days internet connection started struggling. Troubleshoot says that DNS server is not responding.There are a couple others laptops on the same network and it seems that just me have this problem.The problem - Skype, torrents are working OK. The problem is with connection to internet sites via my internet browser. It doesn't matter it's IE, Mozilla or Google Chrome, I have the problem with all of them. Sometimes the problem disappears and everything is working OK but usually I have the problem and can't connect to one or other site.

I am having an issue with my netgear router dg834g
last night my router just stopped working when i was on the internet. I looked at my router and the power light and tick were flashing. After disconnectibg the power a few times this continued so i called it a night and left it disconnected.
Tonight i turned it back on and all looks fine on the router but on the pc it will now not connect and says the dns server isnt responding.
Maybe its a problem with my internet provider (orange) so not sure but its frustrating lol. Dont know a lot of the techical stuff i was using it fine for over a year withoit any problems.
For a while now every time I started up my computer I wouldn't be able to connect to the internet. When I used the Windows Network Diagnostic tool, it said "the DNS server isn't responding". Last weekend I seemed to have solved this with DNS jumper after trying everything (flushing etc.). I tested a torrent and got speeds up to 2.1mb/s which I have never gotten before. Even the other members of my household noticed faster internet speed. This worked up until late Sunday when my internet decided to crash. The problem with starting the computer is gone, but everytime I I tested another torrent and get speed of 2kB/s and while I am downloading, I can't surf the web on that computer. I tried port-forwarding for uTorrent which seemed to work a bit. Download speeds jumped to 20kB/s for about a minute then fell back down to 2kB/s. I saw some forums saying it was there anti virus so I disabled the P2P shield on avast! and that did work as well, so I uninstalled it and got a new anti virus and the speeds were still around 20kB/s then plummeted again
I get the message "dns server isn't responding" several times per day. If i get the message, nothing can get through to the internet (smartphones, laptop, vita, friends smartphones, etc.) If i reset the router, i can access the web again. Or if i wait for 2 minutes.
This is my setup:
Cable modem connects to D-link 615. Laptop is connected with a cable in D-link 615. All my wireless stuff is connected via wireless D-link 615. My cable modem is also connected directly to my ps3. I'm running windows 7 on my laptop.
I have been having some trouble with my internet for awhile now. It fine one second and than it will get really slow and eventually stop working. When I troubleshoot to see what the problem is it either gives me DNS server is not responding or default gateway is not available, sometimes it will give me both. It says it fixes the default gateway problem but it will show up again 5 minutes later.

I'm having an issue with my wireless connection.I was connected fine to my wireless internet on my desktop perfectly fine. I then attempted to connect to Xbox live at this time and that also worked fine.The connection began to get a little flaky (kept losing connection) so I reset my modem while they were both still connected.When the modem came back neither was able to connect.My other laptop, iPhone, and iPad also can no longer connect to the wireless.Windows troubleshooting tells me my DNS server is no longer responding. I'm assuming the desktop connection and Xbox connection are trying to connect to the same thing due to my reset, but I can't figure out how to fix it.
So up till about a week ago my internet connection has been fine. Then all of the sudden it will "cut off" for about 5-10 mins and then be fine again. It happens randomly, sometimes it won't happen for a couple hours and then sometimes it happens 2-3 times in a hour. Funny thing is that it says I am still connected to the internet and infact if I am able to log into like MSN or skype or I am playing a online game, I can still play those games or chat. However, if I am not signed on to msn, skype, etc....during when I can't browse the internet, I can't log into those services. I thought maybe it was my pc, but my ipod touch and roommate's laptop experience the same exact issue as they are connected to my router. The error the pc is giving me is "DNS Server isn't responding.".
I have cable internet with time warner, who provided me with a basic ambit modem. It works if I connect it directly with my PC. But if I try to route the connection through my netgear router (eg. connect modem -> router -> PC), I don't get internet access. The troubleshooting tool tells me that "DNS server isn't responding".
My laptop is connecting to BT Business Hub fine but with "No Internet Access". All I'm being told is "DNS server isn't responding". I've tried all the command prompts I've found and tried "Obtaining DNS server automatically" as well as the default numbers on some forums but nothing is working.I can connect to this same network on my iPad with no problems and this laptop can connect to an alternative wifi as well.
I have a Windows XP laptop and a Windows 7 desktop. The desktop has no wifi support, I had built it myself. To get internet on my desktop (used for games), I had connected my laptop to the pc, and the laptop picked up wifi from my AT&T gateway in another part of the house. ( I can't move the gateway currently) I have been wanting to connect the desktop to a router/repeater/bridge that would pick up my gateway signal, therefore eliminating the use of the laptop. I also have an Xbox right next to the pc, so I din't want to get an adapter because then I would have to purchase two, so I picked up a a wireless n router with 4 ethernet ports. ( then I could connect both systems using 2 ethernet cables) [URL] I knew when purchasing the router that it had repeater/bridge support. Currently, I have it configured as a wifi bridge. I can connect to it via my laptop, on the wireless networks page, it shows my gateway signal, and the bridge/router, so I connect to the router. It says I have excellent connection, but I can't connect to the internet? Using Google Chrome, it says DNS lookup failed. I can't get on any website, only the router's config page, which is 192.168.1.1. I also connected the router to my pc, and when troubleshooting it says DNS server not responding, may be non existant or incorrect?
I can connect to the internet using a huawei dongle on three mobile broadband. But recently having trouble loading web pages. I get the message- dns server isn't responding. I have contacted three who changed settings on my pc through remote access, but I still have the problem although it doesn't seem as bad, i can view more web pages before getting the error message.
I have Broadband Internet and TV through Time Warner Cable. In the past week I suddenly began to lose stations on my cable box from what seemed to be a loss in signal so I had tech support come out to take a look at the problem. Turns out the problem was the wiring in the cable box outside the house. The wiring was over a decade old and had been damaged by water and ice over many winters. Tech support guy replaced all the wiring and the cable box is back to normal!However, after sitting down to use the Internet afterwards my connection kept "dying". Every ten to fifteen minutes or so the connection would seem to die for a minute or two.
All devices connected to the router either wired or wireless experience the issue at the same exact time. Windows diagnosed the problem as "DNS Server Not Responding". Now my router setup has been working for years, and nothing has been changed, so I thought maybe it could be related with the issue with the cable wiresHowever, researching the DNS issue on Google makes me think it's just coincidence.
I rebooted and power cycled the modem and the router. The issue persists. Updated router firmware. The issue persists. I changed my DNS settings to use OpenDNS. The issue persists. Changed DNS settings back to automatic. The issue persists. So I disconnected the router and plugged the modem directly into my main PC and the issue was completely resolved! Hooked up the router again and the issue popped back up after ten minutesRepeated all the troubleshooting steps and the issue persisted through them all.
i have a Dell XPS 8500 with windows 8, Currently it's connected to the modem by ethernet cable Currently i have cable broadband which is fast normally occasionally it's slows for no reason i have done a diagnose test on the connection which came with the following results result of the test came out with the following which i am quoting exactly as it show's on my computer "your computer appears to be configured correctly, but the device or resource(DNS Servers) is not responding"by the way connecting to my router through wifi is not much of improvements?
I have a dell xps L502X with windows 8. My network adapter was replaced last month. My DHCP is enabled. My DNS Server reads 192.168.1.1 and it's a home/cable/DSL connection so from what I've read that's right. I've set my IPv4 and IPv6 to automatically detect the DNS server and IP address to use. I've tried to reconfigure the computer to the wireless router, but when I go to set up a new network no networks pop up even though many networks pop up for me to connect to on the right of my screen.
All of my other devices are connected and working fine. That was the background and what I've tried to fix for my problem. When I try to connect to my home network it says it's a limited connection meaning I have no Internet access. When I run the trouble shooter for the network, Internet connections, and network adapter the only one that has an issue is the network one and the issue is that the DNS server isn't responding.
I got an internet from provider (which is LAN cable sticking from the wall) - and it works fine when I connect via LAN cable - when I write the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, and DNS servers on the LAN adapter and create a PPPoE connection with username and password. I want to do the same but wirelessly. I have an ASUS RT-N10 LX wi-fi router - and connected the cable from the provider to the WAN slot on the router. Then I have accessed the router from my laptop [URL] - and configured everything as it was on my laptop.
Wireless network works fine, the default gateway is pinging - but DNS servers are not accessible. As a result no internet connection available ( Moreover - when I want to ping the DNS (ping 192.168.1.250) - I tries to get a response from other location 192.168.1.3
I have been having an issue with my system recently. When online I will be browsing and my connection will be knocked off. The vodafone page will come out showing connect and diagonise tabs. I did a computer network diagnostic check and it says: "DNS server isn't responding"
pages will randomly stop loading and I will find a warning symbol in my network panel. If I troubleshoot the problem, I will get the message "The DNS server isn't responding" and, if I click for more detail, "Your computer is trying to use a DNS server that is incorrect or doesn�t exist."The modem I am using is a Clear Atlas, model PXU1960. In case my laptop brand is needed, too, I am using a Toshiba.I have already checked Clear's files pertaining to an issue that some Windows 7 and Vista users experience, but the problem does not appear to be the same as the one described by their details. I can still get on the internet; it just stops working at random times.
