Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (DNS server) is not responding. When i diagonose my internet connection on my desktop it says that & this is causing my internet to respond slowly




Hello! Just a few moments ago, I was hit with a problem and I'm at a lost on how to fix it.

Everything was working fine, I could sign into AIM and Yahoo, etc, but suddenly I was disconnected and now I'm having trouble connecting to my messengers, except for Skype, for some reason.

Checking the issue I discovered that I can't view some websites now, my net is kind of slow, it takes awhile to load pictures.

I noticed it gave me a yellow triangle symbol on my Networks tab in the taskbar. So. of course, I did a Windows Network Diagnostics and it gave me this:

"Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (Microsoft Corporation) is not responding"

I don't get it. Just an hour ago everything was working. I never came across this problem until now.




Hi,

I bought a new HP DV6 1330-SA laptop and received it today. I have been trying to connect it to my home network and share its internet connection. It says I am connected but with limited access. When I diagnose the problem I get the message "Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (www.microsoft.com) is not responding". I went on the PC that origionally set up the network and tried to access my laptop. It can be found but it won't let me open it. I've checked all the security settings and eveything is entered correctly. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance

Josh




I am running Windows 7 Professional on a desktop computer and Windows 7 Home Premium on a laptop. They both can successfully connect to the internet without a problem. The laptop connects through wireless and the desktop connects through a wired connection. These two computers, however, cannot communicate with one another. I am able to see both of them in the Network and HomeGroup, but I cannot access either of them. When trying to access either of them from the Network I receive the simple message that "Windows cannot access (computer name)", so I diagnose the issue. This is where things become different.

If I diagnose why I cannot access the laptop from the desktop computer I get the message "Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (Laptop) is not responding." If I diagnose why I cannot access the desktop computer from the laptop I get the message "File and print sharing resource (Desktop) is online but isn't responding to connection attempts." I should also note that I can ping the laptop from the desktop, but I cannot ping the desktop from the laptop.

Incidentally, there are two other computers on this network as well. One is a laptop let's call Laptop2 that runs Windows 7 Home Premium and the other is a desktop we'll call Desktop2 that runs Windows XP. They both connect wirelessly and have internet. They are a part of this concern only because Laptop can see and access these other two computers but Desktop cannot even see them. Laptop2 and Desktop2 can access Laptop, as well. This leads me to believe that the issue I'm having mainly lies with the Desktop, but I'm completely stumped. Why can't these two computers (Laptop and Desktop) communicate with each other and even more, why can't Desktop even see the other two computers?




I'm not sure where my other post on this went to I'm going to write it again. I recently switched over to Xfinity internet and one of the laptops in the household is not connecting to it correctly. After deleting it from the router and adding it back, the new error message I receive from troubleshoot is "Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (Microsoft Home Page | Devices and Services) is not responding".

It worked just fine when I tried to connect it via the Ethernet cable. I have tried clearing the DNS cache as well.

Here is my ipconfig /all for the laptop:

Hi everyone. Ive been having some router ttroubles lately. About 5 weeks ago my internet connection was dropping intermittently due to what looked like my router resetting itself which would take about 10 seconds. This was happening to my gaming pc only. Coincidentally on that night, my power supply failed bringing my whole room down power wise. 5 weeks later after receiving a replacement power supply, the router still drops connection every now minute or two and it is very frustrating. It only happens to my gaming pc as well out of the two desktops and two latops that utilize the internet connection. The two desktops are hard wired to the router and the two latops are wireless to a linksys wireless router. I troubleshooted on my PC to find that my computer is configured correctly but the device or resource (DNS Server) is not responding.

Can anyone help me out?

Hello, I am not sure what is going on but I cannot connect to the Internet and Windows Network Diagnostics says that the DNS sever is not responding. I have it set to obtain an IP address and a DNS server automatically... Still doesn't work.

If you want me to tell you what ipconfig/all says please tell me exactly what you are looking for because I am doing this on my phone through 3G and I have no way to copy and paste.

Also, this happened when I had an iPad in transferring music, and I unplugged my Internet wireless adapter and plugged it into a different USB port, or at least I think that is when it happened. At any rate I got a message saying something about an IP address conflict which I did not pay much attention to.

One other detail is that it is not just my computer that can't connect. My iPhone and my friends iPad that I had plugged in so I could transfer music from my iTunes to his iPad cannot connect either..

Thanks for your help!

for the last while my computer has been acting up.

for the last few months my computer had been giving me problems. i had mandriva linux setup on a partitions with windows 7 as my main. i got locked out of windows because of a partition problem that i couldnt solve. my dad paid the guy at the repair shop 150$ to fix it and reinstall windows. but it appears that he didnt really fix anything he said he did. he did get me most of the files i told him to get however (even though i said ALL windows libraries and he didnt get my pictures) then reinstalled windows and put the files back on. after that windows just seemed really slow and unstable. programs would crash easily and i kept getting increasingly frequent blue screens.

this morning my computer wouldnt even login without giving me a blue screen, not even if i tried to run safe mode. and startup repair did nothing (it appears it doesnt see any operating systems). i dont think its a virus because it had been happening before repairs even thought thats not what i had sent it in to repair for. luckily before the bsods became this bad i put all important files on an external hardrive, so a few hours ago i tried to basially delete everything off the hardrive and reinstall with linux. well linux couldnt see any windows partitions (same as the startup repair) and it wouldnt install. so i tried to reinstall from my windows disk. so i deleted all the windows partitions and created new ones to install on, i dont know if deleting partitions is the first step windows takes in the installing process but during the installation it stop and gave me an error:

"windows cannot install required files. make sure all files are available and restart the installation

error code:0x80070037

i have been searching this error code but havent found anything helpful. when i tried to log in to windows again after the unsuccessful reinstall. it told me there was no boot manager. i dont know what to do next. am i screwed? was there a hardware issue that was causing the bsods? will i be able to reinstall windows (or linux instead)?




My Win95OSR2 supports USB, the motherboard supports USB. Will I have to, and have any chance in getting away with, altering something to make Win95OSR2 appear to be something else to get peripherals to work. I have just got an External CD-RW from Iomega, bundled with a USB card. Sure, it will, I am sure, run on my Compaq laptop, running XP Home, but I'd like to put the freebie card onto my older desktop and get the card and CD-RW to run on that too.

This comes up more and more these days as new peripherals seem, more and more, to require Win98SE or later as an OS.

I recall having to fool a driver on my XP machine that the OS was Win2000 to get it installed, then correcting the fooling around, then all was fine (Packard-Bell BearClaw scanner, in that case)

ADSL Modem/Router/Firewall 3CRWE754G72-A

Wireless USB adaptor 3CRWE254G72

I have been trying to share my ADSL connection between two PCs running XP
Pro SP1 (all available updates loaded except SP2) one connected into the
router by cable and the other wirelessly. I have updated the routers
firmware to the latest version and I have installed the latest software on
the PC using wireless. The PC connected by cable connects without any
problems. The PC connected by wireless now refuses to connect although it
connected OK yesterday. The router knows that the wireless connection is
there because it has picked up the MAC address of the USB adaptor in the
DHCP Clients List and allocated the next consecutive IP address 192.168.1.3.
I have the DHCP server "On" which is the default setting. I have checked
every setting carefully and everything appears to be correct as per the
manual.

On the wireless PC I am using the latest 3Com OfficeConnect Wireless
Utility. This can see the router using its "Site Survey Utility", has
picked up the Routers MAC address under "Link Information" and claims to be
connected to the router but I am unable to access the web. The problem
appears to be down to the dynamic allocation of IP addresses because on the
Wireless Connection Status the IP address is stated as 169.254.199.156 which
is not the address that the router has allocated to it, it isn't even in the
range that the router allocates. Under TCP/IP I have it set to "Obtain an
IP address automatically" and "Obtain a DNS Server address automatically"
which are the default settings. I have tried the repair button on the
Wireless Connection Status dialog but all I get is:

The following steps of the repair operation failed:

Renewing the IP address.

Please contact your network administrator or ISP.

This seems to confirm that the problem somehow relates to the way the IP
addresses is being allocated.

I haven't much experience of computer networks and I am getting nowhere fast
so I will be grateful to anyone who can help.
