    My Windows 7 shows an error message that DNS does not response and I
    check for the details.
    It shows that the Windows looks DNS server 192.168.1.1 which is my
    router admin page.
    I just wonder does Windows looks router as a DNS server or router
    configuration need to set.
    I realized that IE 9 was unable to reach 192.168.1.1 IP address when I
    type in address bar.
    Suddently, IE 9 is able to go to 192.168.1.1 and access my router
    admin page, but I got DNS server does not response.

    Any idea about this issue?
    Your help is great apreciated,

    You've been posting messages about issues with your router for a while now
    without really answering any of the questions needed to help you.

    1. Please confirm you are connected to this router with Etherhet and NOT
    wireless when you try to configure it.

    2. what is the brand and model of your router?

    3. did you ever change the default SSID and password for this router (if you
    didn't, you might actually be trying to access someone else's router).

    4. What exact error did you see when you try with IE 9?

    Please answer all 4 questions.

    It really sounds like you are connected via wireless and to someone else's
    wireless router where neither of you changed the default SSID or are using any
    kind of wireless security.

    Yes, my computer connects to Etherhnet.
    My router is Linksys WRT54G
    I have router sett the security key to enter.
    There is no error message on IE 9, but Windows 7 action center has
    important message and I get DNS does not response when I clcik on
    diagnose the network.
    I check the error log Winodws considers my router as DNS server.

    Thanksa again for helping,

    the WRT54G is a pretty old router. do you have the most recent firmware for this
    router? what is the hardware revision? go to
    http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT54G and select your hardware
    rev. choices are from 1.0 to 8.2. upgrade the firmware and reset the router to
    factory defaults. This may not help you based on what I've seen with others
    using this router with Windows 7.

    This router is *known* to have had issues with Windows 7. Example -
    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/77-63-windows-wired-computer-prevents-wireless-connections-router
    - some people report that disabling your homegroup might bring relief. You would
    be better off replacing this router if that is the case.

    I second the 'change router' suggestion,

    Idea, if you are behind a cable or DSL box, and it is fairly recent
    hardware, it too has an access feature to it for firewall and other
    assorted settings. So you need to have an access address for that also.
    It best be different then your present linksys box.

    So you might be dealing with a setup that has controls in a modem, a
    router, AND in the software in each computer hooked up to your 'network'
    If thats the case then you might have 3 different places you would need
    to configure before things work well with each other.

    For installations behind a DSL or cable modem box I like to use a data
    switch, that lets me follow the KISS principal. AND it is usually less
    expensive then routers. This tends to reduce the amout of places that
    one would need to configure.

    I run this router (same model. one of the first edition) also running
    Windows 7 on 2 machines. One wired, one wireless as well as a network
    printer and several network external drives. I have never encountered
    any problems with it whatsoever.Accessing the settings page from any of
    my systems is fast and easy. I did not know there were people having a
    problem with them.

    I advise people to stay away from ISP supplied all in one broadband modem/router
    boxes whenever possible. You do not want your ISP to have access to your network
    config. In most cases these all in one devices are far less configurable than a
    stand alone retail router.
