Computer stopped connecting to Internet

December 31, 2009 at 09:58:54
Specs: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium, 1.733 GHz / 1013 MB

Suddenly after a few weeks, my HP does not connect to the internet. I get the address not found message (DNS error). Previously it was working fine. I tried resetting my IE settings back to default. But no luck. I know is not the router as my original laptop is able to connect just fine- and so is my husband's when he brings his home.
How do I get rid of the DSN errors?
Help! Thanks!

I made a network reset post here: http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.p...

I'm posting it as I can't seem to format my reply posts (here) to be similar

Hmm, actually I'll try again:
