Default DNS issue

I am having an issue with one of four computers in my house. I am able to browse web pages on all except one. On the one it shows that i'm connected to the Internet but i am only able to use messengers. When i try and access a web page it tells me unable to find web page so I click on the diagnose. It tells me DNS server may be down. Its been like this for 2 days.

Any Ideas?

It very well could be the DNS server for that domain is down for whatever reason. I say this because you aren't having any DNS issues with other sites.

Default Re: DNS issue

Have you tried to flush dns if it is an xp or vista machine?

from a command prompt type:
ipconfig /flushdns
press enter.

If that does not work you can reset winsock and tcp/ip from a command prompt:
netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt

I tried those commands at the command prompt and it tells me " The requests needs to be evaluated".

Why don't you configure the dns server as your rooter? I configured all my pc's with my router ip as the dns server.
