Are you using the Vista AOL software ? ( 9.0 VR )
What do you mean by " router software " as routers don't need software as they are OS independent , they run on anything as long as they are attached to a network port . A DNS fault may come from the router itself , try power cycling or resetting the router and see if that helps .
