Re: DNS Problem
Guess its nothing much to worry about then.Will look for an updated driver
but if not its now working ok..I carried out a /release and /renew again
looking more closely at the output and doing an ipconfig after each
operation. When I did it before I thought, in view of the error msg,that it
hadnt worked but after the release my pcs ip was 169.x.x.x which I think is
the ip windows gives to pc if it cant find a DHCP server.Then after the renew
it went to 192.x.x.x which is what the router hands out.So in spite of the
msg it worked ok.
Its great to be able to get help like this so thanks again.
