Today my desktop computer which uses Vista stopped connecting to the internet. It is still connected to the wireless router however. When I click "diagnose and repair", it tells me "Cannot communicate with Primary DNS Server(192.xxx.x.x)".
It recommends resetting the network adapter "wireless network connection".
When I do this, it seems to repair that, and then goes on to say that "checking for other network problems: there still seems to be a problem with your connection.
Next, it says "Windows tried a repair but a problem still exists. Cannon communicate with Primary DNS server(xxxxxx). Network diagnostics pinged the remote host but did not receive a response."
It then recommends resetting the wireless connection again. I do this several times, and ultimately it tells me that the problem cannot be fixed, etc.
I assumed that this was a problem with the router, but when I tried my laptop with XP, the connection and internet work just fine. It is the same with my wife's laptop (also with XP).
So it would seem that the problem is with my desktop and/or vista.
Any help is appreciated.
