ERROR:105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): Unable to resolve the server's DNS address

This question is answered

Hi, I've been using my Dell Vostro 1500 (Vista Business) wireless for quite some time when all of a sudden I received the following message, Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): Unable to resolve the server's DNS address.

I am connected to my wireless network, and can see other networks as well.  No browser on my laptop will work.

I have run all the possible, but to no avail

I have a broadcom 440x 10/100 integrated controller and Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945 ABG Network Connection. Please help!

  • I would not be surprised it worked wired, do you have a Dynamic IP set or is it static ? for your system i mean.

    If the IP is set Static on your system you may want to check the DNS address entered, change it to dynamic and then try.

    If this is a continuous occurance you may want to Reset/Upgrade the firmware of your Broadband Router, again if its DSL then please save the settings before doing so, else you may be cut off Internet completely.

  • Hi,

    Could please elaborate as to what you have tried ?

    Have you restarted your Router / Modem ?

  • Hi Telson,

    Yes, I have done everything but no luck.

    Then I have tried to repair the network connection by the wizard and again nothing. After that I have just plugged the yellow ethernet cable from the broadband router into my laptop and miraculously the problem had been solved in a few seconds.

    Thank you for your letter anyway.
