    What is DNS?



    DNS is useful for several reasons. The most well known reason is that it makes it possible to attach domain names (like yahoo.com) to hard-to-remember IP addresses (216.109.112.135).





    How do I identify if the workstation is not resolving DNS addresses?



    ·         Go to “Start” then “Run”, and type CMD



    ·         When you get to the DOS prompt, type PING and the Domain Name (ping yahoo.com)



    ·         Then PING the IP address of the Domain Name (ping 216.109.112.135)



    ·         If you receive “Ping request could not find host yahoo.com. Please check the name and try again.” when pinging the Domain Name and you receive 4 “Replies” when pinging the IP, the workstation is not able to resolve DNS





    Resolution #1 - Configure the workstation to use alternate DNS servers



    ·         Go to the Control Panel of the workstation



    ·         Then Network Settings



    ·         Select the network connection that is having the DNS issue



    ·         Go to the adapter’s TCP/IP properties



    ·         Statically set the DNS Servers to address provided by your ISP (or 4.2.2.2 or 4.2.2.3 or use other public DNS service like OpenDNS)
