    from the computer, open a command prompt and type in ipconfig /all and let us know what the primary/secondary DNS are. Im guessing its a setting thats bad or it just needs a power cycle, i doubt its isolated to the xbox

    I had problems with the same thing the other day with DNS... a couple hours later, I tried again, and it worked... I don't think the problem is with your router. Try unplugging your cable modem or whatever you have for a couple minutes.. both the cable and the power cord. See what happens there.

    I have no idea how netset.exe would help you but have a look at if you want to know more. To ping an address (assuming you are using Windows XP

    1) Click start then run
    2) In the dialogue box type cmd and hit ok. A command prompt will open.
    3) type ping

    It should return an IP address and the response in milliseconds.
