I am having a problem connecting to the internet through my laptop. I have a home PC that's connected to the router and the PC can easily connect to the internet but the laptop can not, wirelessly nore wired. When trying to connect wirelessly, the laptop picks up the signal but does not connect and it gives me the following error message: "there may be a problem with your domain name server (DNS) configuration." When connecting through a wired connection I get the following error message: "change the settings for the network adapter local area connection. A problem with your network router or broadband modem might be preveting an internet connection." This is all on windows vista with a Linksys router.
