Hello, I am not sure what is going on but I cannot connect to the Internet and Windows Network Diagnostics says that the DNS sever is not responding. I have it set to obtain an IP address and a DNS server automatically... Still doesn't work.

If you want me to tell you what ipconfig/all says please tell me exactly what you are looking for because I actually have no way of getting a file from my computer onto my phone right now. However the default gateway, dhcp, and DNS are all while the ipv4 is <preferred>.

Also, this happened when I had an iPad in transferring music, and I unplugged my Internet wireless adapter and plugged it into a different USB port, or at least I think that is when it happened. At any rate I got a message saying something about an IP address conflict which I did not pay much attention to.

One other detail is that it is not just my computer that can't connect. My iPhone and my friends iPad that I had plugged in so I could transfer music from my iTunes to his iPad cannot connect either..

Thanks for your help!
