    My laptop, Windows Vista 32-bit, has been connecting to the internet just fine until about the past couple days. It shows I'm connected to internet but I cannot actually get on the internet (I am on a different computer).

    When I click "diagnose and repair", i get this message: There may be a problem with your DNS configuration. Windows failed to find the well known host "www/microsoft/com" using DNS. The server may be down. (I didn't use periods in the link because my thread count is under 5 and I cannot post links)

    In command prompt, I typed in "ipconfig" and this showed up: Well I type in ipconfig in the command prompt, this shows up:
