Post DNS!!!!
I'll get straight to the point, after my PC decided to restart, I tried to get online...Server not found.
I noticed that 'no connections are available' when I click on my Network button.
I click 'Trouble shoot', I get a "The DNS server may be experiencing problems"
I've just noticed that my wireless printer is also now inaccessible via my PC.

I can provide more info if anybody can shed any light on the situation.
Over to the geeks. ;)

Use google DNS servers rather than those of your ISP, you will get fewer problems.

But the fact that your wireless printer has problems too suggests that you have router problems rather than DNS problems. Reboot it.

Tried a reboot. No good.
All other laptops using the wireless and connecting to printer without problem.

Is it a PC or a laptop? Wireless or wired connection?
Maybe the modem section of your motherboard has failed, or needs drivers?

If stuff on the local network isnt working its nothing to do with DNS.

Which version of windows are you using?

If its wifi and at home do you have a smart phone or tablet there and does that still work on wifi?

Go to the command prompt and try:-

ping 8.8.8.8

If no response then run.

ipconfig

Then find the adaptor IP address and gateway (wireless adaptor 1 or ethernet 1 or whatever).
If its 169.something then your computer isnt talking to your router.

Also find the gateway address listed there.

Then ping that address to see if it responds.

Then go from there.

Have you got a network cable handy to plug the computer directly into the router instead of wifi?
