    I am working on an Acer laptop running Windows7. Internet connectivity was fine, then just stopped. I have attempted to get on the internet with multiple access points, hotspots, pdanet, 2wire router. The connection is fine to the devices, when attempting access the internet, Internet Explorer cannot display webpage. Diagnostics message isDNS server isn't responding. Any suggestions?

    Sure, and welcome to the forums jclee88.
    Click the StartOrb and type ncpa.cpl into the search box and hit enter.
    Select then right click the problem adapter and choose properties.
    Uncheck Internet Protocol Version 6
    Select (highlight) Internet Protocol Version 4 and click the properties button
    Then click the Advanced button
    Then select the DNS tab
    Click the add button and add the following two ip address to the DNS server addresses box
    8.8.8.8
    and
    8.8.4.4
    OK your way back out of there and reboot the computer, see if that helps at all.
    Regards
    Randy

    Go to your wireless adapter connection 6 and change both the dns server addresses to 192.168.1.1
