WTF does this error mean that the DNS server is not responding. according to the lovely people at DELL, this means I have to pay them 300 to get a software service package to fix this issue. please help :(

If this is a cable router and it has picked up settings from modem or adsl router, then try setting a static i.p on pc, sometimes dhcp fails.

Settings for pc nic ..

I.P = or <== or an i.p on same i.p range of router/modem
Subnet =
Gateway = or <== routers i.p
DNS = or <== routers i.p

Open command prompt as admin, and type ping 192.168.x.1 (gateway i.p)
Should give you 4 replies, if it works, your home network is ok.

If not, could be firewall or a setting on router, need more info on network setup.
