Unable to resolve DNS address after a new build

January 24, 2012 at 09:37:21
Specs: Windows 7, Amd 970 BE/ 8gb GSkill ripjaws 1800
So I recently built my first system over christmas. I used and existsing HDD loaded with windows 7 that i have had for a year. Before installing all the new hardware, i used the sysprep tool in windows to reset all my drivers to factory settings. After using new parts I bought and some old ones I had lying around I booted the computer up it wasn't connected to my router. I had to re-register windows like it was fresh out of the box again and a few settings and everything was fine. So i finally hooked the router up and tried to get Internet access and all that would come up is that the DNS failed to resolve the address. It would intermittently work but never over a period of 10 secs. I finally manually set the DNS address to open servers and it works but not very well. Webpages are slow to load, the ads that usually show are showing a window where it can't resolve the DNS address. This is a huge problem for me because i went from an AMD 840t to a 970 BE which is a substantial jump in speed. I ran my connection on speedtest.net and it registered with a B+ being faster than 89% of the US, and games run superb. Its just opening webpages that really blows. Is there a solution to this? It has been bugging me for months on end.
