    Hey WSC,

    Lately I've had some connection issues and I can't figure out why. Every once in a while my web browser would stop working. However my Teamspeak still runs and if I don't zone to a different area in TERA I'm fine. I checked to see if I have internet and it says I'm connected. I then reset my repeater and it's fine until like 45 mins - 1hr later then it happens again.

    I did a diag on the connection and it says "DNS Server isn't responding".

    If anyone could help me out that would be great and I would really appreciate it!

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I used to have the same problem. My ISP uses a couple of DNS servers that tend to fail often, so it "seems" that the internet is down, but it's not, it's just the DNS servers. So I added a couple of additional DNS servers to the resolvers. I use the public google DNS resolvers for this, they work real well:

    https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/

    8.8.8.8
    8.8.4.4

    You can find instructions on how to configure the DNS servers manually here:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/change-tcp-ip-settings

    I would not configure just the google DNS servers, but place them in addition to your ISP DNS servers. If you run a command "ipconfig /all" you can see what DNS servers you are using, so you can add those, and also add the google DNS ones...

    Hum... Not sure if this is a bit confusing, let me know if you need more info, or are not familiar with configuring that manually.
