I am trying to set up a LAN with a router to connect to the internet. When i run the diagnostic program it skips pinging the DNS server. When i looked in the help files it says that it has not been set. Does anyone know how to find out the DNS address ? I am using BT Yahoo Broadband and on the old connection it only says Detect DNS automatically.

Any help would be most welcome, thanks.

Try the following: Open a Command Prompt and type ipconfig /all

Note the space after ipconfig

ok, i'm hoping one of you kind people will be able to help me. the router manual has several scenarios with settings to use. i want to use the router both as a switch for a network and to provide internet access for 3 computers (one wired, 2 wireless). The scenarios are:

1. Bridge Mode Config
2: Router Mode Config with Dynamic IP
3: Router Mode Config with Static IP
4: Router Mode PPPoA Config (RFC2364)
5: Router Mode PPPoE Config (RFC2516)
6: Router Mode Config with Classical IP over ATM (RFC1577)

As mentioned above i'm trying to share my BT Yahoo Broadband connection.

The DNS servers should be updated automatically through DHCP - to do this you must enable the DHCP server on your router and then set each machine on the lan to obtain the ip address automatically.
