    It is thru cable modem so I think that means lan line. I am trying to help a friend, they can not access the internet since this message came up, and I am familiar with quite a bit about computers, but this is a new one for me, can you help, I would be forever greatful.
  3. Ok, if the computer is at home, isn't a LAN.

    Try with this two command first in CMD:

    1- ipconfig /flushdns do 2 or 3 times and after this, continuo with this:
    2- ipconfig /registerdns only one time.

    If the problem continuous, is better that call to the ISP (Internet service provider), 'cause the DNS is the server that assigns the IP automatically to all PCs for this PCs can surf the web.
