Just bought a new laptop pulled it out and connected to the interent via wireless network. I got good reception and everything worked fine. Took it back with me for the holidays back to my home town and connected for the first few days to a wireless network that was in the area. All of the sudden one day i could not get to the internet. I still had a good connection but the laptop would not connect to the internet. I kept getting the couldnt connect to the internet or DNS error page.

Now I am back home and i still get a good connection i just cant get to the internet.

Please help. I have been searching for an answer for days.

Try this -

Open a Command Prompt window (in XP, "Start > Run", type CMD and click OK) and at the prompt, type:

IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS and press Enter.

Then type:

IPCONFIG /REGISTERDNS and press Enter.

Close the Command Prompt window and see if that gets you any further forward.
