  1. DNS update Required

    When I clicked on an web address I wanted, a page appeared saying "DNS update required".
    I began reading a walkthrough on how to do this but, when I got to 'type in your "preferred IP" and "alternate" addresses I was stumped. Where do I find these addresses?

    I'm not computer savvy at all, so everything needs to be explained in plain English for me to understand, I'm afraid.. *Redface

    I'm on windows 10 and use Microsoft Edge browser.

    I'd be grateful if anyone help me with this problem?

  2. DNS problems with router

    A couple suggestions I have for you:

    Update the firmware on the router. Maybe it's getting into a badstate, and a firmware update might fix it. Or if you're comfortable with it, install a custom firmware like dd-wrt. Just make sure its supported on your router first.

    Change your DNS to:, Might help.

    If none of these work, maybe statically set your DNS on your PS3/PC to the IPs you listed, taking the router out of the lookup procedure.

    Last option, is look for a new router.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond DNS update Required :) Best regards.

    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.

  4. DNS update Required

    dns probe finished no internet

    Hi Oxide,

    After some trial-and-error testing of all suggested fixes, which I found over the internet, here’re what worked for me to solve "DNS Probe Finished No Internet" issue and might work for you as well.

    Method 1: Change Default DNS Address to Open DNS

    Here all you have to do is change your default automatically obtained DNS server addresses to open DNS or Google DNS. To do this, follow below mentioned steps:

    Step 1:
    Right click on Network icon located in Windows Task Bar Menu.

    Step 2:
    Click on ‘Open Network and Sharing Center.’

    Step 3:
    Click on Local Area Connection with whom who are presently connected and click onProperties.

    Step 4:
    Select ‘Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)’ and click on Properties.

    Step 5:
    Now in newly opened windows, select the radio button that reads ‘Use the following DNS server address:’

    Step 6:
    Now in the ‘Preferred DNS Server’ box type in and in ‘Alternate DNS Server’ type in

    Step 7:
    Now check the box that says ‘Validate settings upon exit’ and then click on OK. That’s it.
