Network / IP Fail Cannot Communicate With Primary DNS Server
Sep 11, 2011
Me and my wife just moved into a new apartment and got subscribed to a new broadband provider. They sent us through a cisco router (model no.epc2425) and we created a WPA2-Personel secure network, with encryption type TKIP. I have connected my macbook to it, my iPhone to it, and my wifes samsung netbook (running Windows 7) but I cannot connect my laptop running vista to the internet. I've tried playing around with different network security and could connect to it on WEP but I didn't want to keep it on that and I couldn't connect the net-book. The rest of the security types and encryption types have the same response.The computer connects to the network with an excellent signal, but it is the only computer that cannot connect to the internet through this network. I never had a problem like this with this computer and have tried it on other networks.When I run windows network diagnostics it says 'Cannot communicate with Primary DNS Server (18.104.22.168)'Network diagnostics pinged the remote but did not receive a response.'
When I try to automatically get a new IP setting for network adapter it tries to repair but then says 'there still seems to be a problem with your connection'. Likewise when i click 'reset the network adapter' the repair leads back to cannot communicate with primary DNS server.I have tried a wired connection, router to computer, but as soon as I plug it in I get the message 'Windows has detected and IP address conflict' - and it once again connects to the network but not to the internet.I don't know if this makes any difference, but this is a British computer and I moved to Sweden, obviously using a Swedish ISP..i used to have this problem, you need to set the network adaptor to all automatic, your new cisco router uses uPnP so your IP conflict is probably a result of your unconnected laptop trying to connect to the same IP address as another PC on your network (eg/ 192.168.0.5 would be used by your iPhone, but your laptop has reserved that IP address for itself), to fix this, go to network and sharing center, navigate to adaptor settings on the left pane, right click the wireless card and choose properties>IPv4 properties, set everything to automatic, including all things in other tabs and click advanced and make sure DHCP is enabled on that card.Then reboot and try again.''I had a look at the wireless card (it's Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter) and on the IPv4 properties it's already on 'obtain and IP address automatically & obtain DNS server automatically' as well as 'automatic private IP address' in one of the tabs.
I recently set up our new Cisco Linksys E1000 router (we originally had a Belkin, but it is dying). It works perfectly fine on my desktop. However, there is only a "local connection" on my mom's laptop, a Toshiba Satellite running Vista. Diagnosis: Cannot Communicate with Primary DNS Server (22.214.171.124). I've read a bunch of other posts on many websites but so far nothing has worked.
I had my broadband installed and activated and I'm using my laptop with vista I've used it before with wireless Broadband and was fine but now I'm having trouble using the Internet, wifi is on and it is showing as connected to the router but when I open the web browser it is unable to connect, I used diagnostics and it comes up with the following:Cannot communicate with primary DNS server 126.96.36.199
Problem: No internet connection. 'Can't communicate with primary DNS server'Information: I am using a Windows 7 64 laptop (LAN connection) to connect to the internet. Two days ago this stopped working (after working fine for 3 months). Using windows troubleshoot I receive the message 'Can't communicate with primary DNS server'. I have checked the IPv4 and IPv6 and they are all set to automatic.I then tried to reset this using Microsoft 'fix it solution' as indicated Can't communicate with Primary DNS Server this still had no luck.I have also tried,
Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog
Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log
and ipconfig/ release and ipconfig/ renew none of this has made any difference. I can successfully ping the default gateway but cannot ping google. All packets time out.Additional information: Using an older laptop I am able to successfully connect to the internet on the same line. Also the laptop that is not working does work fine at work. So I don't even know if the problem is with the hub or the laptop.
My wireless connection showed connected but Internet Explorer kept showing the page cannot be displaced. When I clicked the diagnose connection problems, the message kept coming back with "Cannot communicate with primary DNS server (188.8.131.52)".
I'm having an absolute nightmare trying to get my laptop to connect to the internet. It will connect to our home network (virgin media cable broadband) locally but won't connect to the internet. I've tried a few of the fixes I've read on here such as changing the DNS settings myself but it's going nowhere.I can connect to other networks for example my parents virgin media network and the other laptops and my ps3 can all connect to our internet just fine so I really don't understand why mine isn't working.When I diagnose the problem it says "Cannot communicate with Primary DNS Server (184.108.40.206)" and underneath it says "Network diagnostics pinged the remote host but did not receive a response"

I'm having issues connecting to the Internet through my netgear router. The other laptops in the house work fine so I'm sure it's an issue with the setting on my laptop that are the issue. It connects to the router, tries to identify, them says unidentified and remains at a local only connection.The error says: cannot connect with primary dns server(192.168.2.1). Windows cannot resolve it itself.
i can't connnect to the internet wirelessly, i am able to with ethernet cable. i am able to connect to other networks with the computer. Reason i say it is a problem with one of my computers, is i am able to connect to the same internet with 4 other computers wirelessly. it is just this one computer. the computer is a HP Pavillion notebook 6000 series
I recently got new comcast internet installed on my PC and now i want to add a router but when i connect the router i keep getting the same error message, "Cannot communicate with primary DNS server" It also says it tried to ping but did not recieve or something like that. When i connect straight from the modem to the PC it works perfect but when i add the router it does not.[CODE]
I'm having a bit of trouble connecting to the internet on my desktop. Basically, my desktop computer, running windows 7, wired connection via LAN, is having trouble connecting to the internet. It appears to be connected to the internet (all indicators are "green light"), but when I attempt to open a browser, for example, there is no response. After running a diagnosis, I found this: Windows can't communicate with the device or resource (Primary DNS server). The strange thing is that our apartment wireless network works just fine. I looked around on here for a solution, but all were entertaining laptops with wireless connections. My IPs are set to automatic as well.
I have recently gotten a Virgin Super Hub router and everyone in the house is able to connect to the internet fine except me. I have a Toshiba laptop with Windows Vista running on it. I am able to connect locally to the network however it lists it as an "unidentified network" and when I try to diagnose the problem I receive notifications such as "Cannot communicate with primary DNS server 18.104.22.168" and "Network Diagnostic pinged remote host but did not receive a response. When I have a cable plugged into the router and my laptop I am able to connect but on a separate network "Network 3".
Wireless laptop works but desktop will not connect to Internet. Was working yesterday. Tried to use Windows repair using Reset the network adapter "local area connection'. Received the following. Windows tried to repair a problem but still exists. Cannot connect with Primary DNS Server (22.214.171.124).
I am trying to hook my desktop up to my wireless router via Ethernet cable. The wireless Internet works great and my housemate's laptop works with an Ethernet cable. I have already contacted my service provider but to no avail. I have no idea where to start
One of our laptops won't connect to the internet via wireless, gives a "Cannot communicate with Primary DNS Server (192.168.1.20)" error. It works fine when plugged in via ethernet, and all our other computers connect to wireless just fine.
The wireless is set to acquire DNS automatically in the TCP/IP IPv4 properties. I've tried to flush DNS, reset IPv4 and reset Winsock with no luck.
I tried to connect to the Internet this morning on my Windows Vista, but it wouldn't work. My router seems to be fine (I can connect on all the other computers in the house.), and it shows that I'm connected to the network but not the Internet. After running Diagnose and Repair, I got this message:"Cannot communicate with Primary DNS Server(192.168.2.1). Network diagnostics pinged the remote host but did not receive a response." [code]
when trying to connect to my home wireless network i get an error saying "windows cannot communicate with the primary dns server" all other computers in the hosue can connect without issue.
- not the router - not the internet - reconfigured router (didn't work) - dns is on automatically obtain - computer i am using now is connected to same network - flushed dns several times (didn't work) - rewrote tcp/ip registry keys - uninstalled all PCI related drivers
So whenever I put my desktop to sleep and then turn it back on, I cannot connect to the internet. My laptops are fine and can connect to the internet w/ the wireless however.When I have windows diagnostic run a troubleshoot and repair, it tells me it can't communicate w/ the primary DNS server and that resetting the Local Area Connection will fix it (And it does).If I restart the computer, it seems to fix this problem as well.I don't get why it can't communicate w/ the DNS and that I have to manually reset the LAC everytime I turn on the computer from sleep mode.
sometimes my internet just drops, asin it just goes to limited connectivity and appears to not send or receive any packets, sometimes a windows network repair will work and sometimes it wont, i cant fathom out what it is, and its annoying when trying to download :/ but either way the only message im getting from windows network connect repair thingy is that " cannot communicate with primary DNS server "
Cable operator went down 5 days ago and we haven't been able to get internet through the router since. We got a replacement modem from the cable operator three days ago, but I haven't been able to get it working with the router.
The modem works when directly connected to a computer, however, once connected to a computer, we cannot plug it into another computer without turning the modem off and on again (I don't remember ever having to do that). Also, the modem is supposed to be able to run ethernet on one computer and USB on another computer. We can get both initially, but as soon as you use one, the will not work. Below is an ipconfig/all
I bought a Linksys E3000 Router. I have hooked it up and connected my PS3, laptop, iPad, 2 guest laptops on occasion with no issues. However, my fiancee's laptop will not connect to the internet. It connects to the network fine, just not to the Internet. I keep getting the same error "Cannot communicate with Primary DNS Server". She is running Windows Vista SP 2. I tried all three of the solutions suggested by Vista, but they all failed. I also did a hard reset of the laptop, router, and modem. Waited a little while with everything unplugged. Still cannot connect to the interent and get the same error message.
I have an HP Pavillion laptop with vista that can't connect to my home network. I've never had a problem connecting to any other networks public or private but for some reason everytime I try to connect to my home network it only lets me connect locally with no internet access. When i try to repair the connection it just comes up with Cannot communicate with primary DNS Server(126.96.36.199)

I cannot currently connect to the internet on my Dell Inspiron 1200 Laptop running Windows Vista. This happened today after uninstalling Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4, although I have no idea why a network problem could be caused by a software removal. Both my wifes smart phone and my own work on the same connection from the Sky wireless router that distributes the signal but the Windows network diagram show an excellent local connection to the computer from the router and no connection at all to the internet. When I try to diagnose and fix through the Windows link, the following message is shown: "Cannot Communicate with Primary DNS Server (192.168.0.1). Network diagnostics pinged remote host but did not recieve a response." Windows has reset the network adapter for the wireless network connection but this does not repair the problem. The problem still exists.
i bought a vista laptop about a year ago and it has been working fine until about 2 weeks ago it seems that i cant connect to the internet i have a linksys router wrt54g but when i try to connect to the inter and run the trubleshoot it say cannot communicate with primary DNS server (184.108.40.206).
I have an issue with my girlfriend's Compaq Presario A900. We have recently had a new Wireless router and the laptop was working fine going online then one day it wouldn't connect.The laptop is connecting to the router although it is showing as an unidentified network and access as local only. All other PC's and laptops in the house are connecting fine and using the internet.I have see this question asked on other forums but as i mentioned i'm not very tech savvy and i can't seem to get anything to work.

I have been trying to connect my daughter's toshiba a215-54697 wirelessly to my linksys e3000 router. The computer recognizes the network wirelessly as the correct name and will only have "local access". When it is hardwired to the router it connects just fine, it also will connect to the unsecured (guest)network. I have comcast internet that is connected to an ooma box that is cconnected to the router. My laptop and the playstation find and connect to the internet just fine. The toshiba is running windows vista with a atheros ar5007eg adapter.
Im having a problem connecting to the internet. Access - Local Only. and when running the diagnostics comes up with this error Cannot communicate with primary dns server (192.168.200.2) Acer ASPIRE 5338 Laptop
I want to configure my ACE so that if a probe fails, it fails over to the backup rserver, BUT it won't failback to the primary rserver until manual intervention is complete. The problem is we don't want an rserver to fail and failover to secondary, then failback to primary, repeat... (flip-flopping). I want to be able to have time to get on the server and find out what may have caused the probes to fail before it fails back.
So just last night after about 3 years my laptop won't go on the internet and states this message when i try and do the windows repair.
It says its connected local only with only 2 signal bars. It says its connected to the home hub (BT) but then wont go that bit further and connect to the actual internet.
I have changed the wireless channel to 11 and it has made no difference at all. I have also tried to connect with a ethinic cable and the only difference it makes is it changed the signal to excellent but still wont connect to the internet!
This is defineteley a problem with the laptop as we have two other laptops and an ipad connected to the home hub which are all working fine. Also i have got BT to check the connection and its all ok. (Inspiron 1525)
We have found that only Cisco 1231 WAP are exhibiting this behaviour. Their Primary WLAN controller is Cisco1 WLC but they fail to register to Primary WLC and fall back to Cisco2 WLC. After about 200 sec , they attempt to connect to Primary WLC once again and fail. The whole cycle is repeated every 250 seconds.
