255.255.0.0 or 255.255.255.0 are not DNS addresses they are subnet masks.

What LAN devices provide the DHCP service? (probably the router - what make and model is it?)

You should turn on your router and other LAN devices first and then the PCs that way when they look for an automatic IP address to be allocated the router (or whatever) will be up and ready.

Can you enter the router configuration page? Enter in the address bar 192.168.1.1 . The default User/Psword is admin/admin. What are the DNS IP addresses?
