I've been trying to get this old desktop connected to the internet via an ethernet cable to my belkin router. However, I cannot seem to access anything online and get the "error 105" for each website I try to load.. Steam will allow my sign in, update games, and friends list/chat seems functional but still get error 105 when trying to access the steam store, etc. I've tried various fixes with no benefit as of yet:
used various command line operations like: ipconfig /flushdns, ipconfig /release,renew, etc.
I've already tried changing the DNS address to the Open DNS address (which I've been using already) but with no positive result.
I'm able to ping sites like google, yahoo, using their IP address, but when performing "ping www.google.com" there is a problem, so I guessing this has to do with a DNS error somewhere. I just don't know how to fix this. I need to get this computer back online so my wife can use it for work purposes so any meaningful response on how to correct this is very much appreciated. I've been spending hours blindly trying to fix settings here and there, but I need your guy's expertise.
here's the ipconfig /all results.
