Default "DNS server not responding"

So i recently moved into a new apartment, and just had my cable/internet installed. the internet works when it connects wired directly from the modem to my desktop, but when i connect it to my wireless router (i've tried now with 3 routers, so i don't think the router is the problem) while it says i'm connected, it's also showing there's an error in that neither my p4 or p6 ports are accessing any of the internet and i get an error message "DNS SERVER NOT RESPONDING" I'm not sure what the issue is, i've made not changes between my last home to this one... and I don't think i need to be connected to a DNS server anyway.. so not sure why windows 7 thinks i should be...

it's also connecting (but now allowing the internet to work on a labtop or my phone or gaming devices.)

can anyone help?

Default Re: "DNS server not responding"

Check the wireless router settings to make sure it is not trying to assign DHCP IP addresses and/or DNS IP addresses.
All that should be happening is that your wireless router gives you your local network connection and then your IP address, DNS and Gateway addresses should all come from the broadband router.
If the broadband device is just a modem, then I have to assume that you have a separate router to which the modem is connected. In which case the router has to be configured in the correct way to route all Internet traffic to the modem.

The DNS settings (which you may have to specify as part of the DHCP configuration) ought to match the DNS servers which your broadband provider stipulates should be used. A lot of ISP's now block DNS requests from IP addresses which are not part of their IP address network.

DNS servers are vital to Internet functionality. It is the DNS servers which translate the URL, say, into the IP address which is actually required to get to the relevant server.

I got thrown out of a window! What's the f***ing charge for getting pushed out of a moving car, huh? Jaywalking?

My father gave me one piece of advice. He said "Always. .." No, he said "Never..." well actually he gave me two pieces of advice, I've forgotten the other one. But the important one is, "Never chase a man over a cliff".
