    I get the following error msg every day "Name resolution for the name dns.msftncsi.com timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded." I lose connection to the internet for 2 mins and my connection is fine after that. I have replaced my router/modem a month ago so I know that is not the issue, I updated my NIC driver so that is up to date. I replaced the RJ45 cable from my switch to my PC. Win 7 is my OS.

    I cant think of anything else to try. Can I plz get some help with this.


    thx

    Who is your ISP?

    you should try contacting them for their DNS servers, then statically set them in the adapter's TCP/IP properties. you could leave your IP Subnet and Gateway automatically set.

    Maybe switch to OpenDNS or similar?

    try setting your network to home network.

    or

    try

    OpenDns

    208.67.222.222
    208.67.220.220

    Or

    Google DNS

    8.8.8.8
    8.8.4.4

    hope it helps
