Troubleshoot Internet Browsing
If your modem router can obtain an IP address but your computer is unable to load any web
pages from the Internet, it might be for one of the following reasons:
•Your computer might not recognize any DNS server addresses.
A DNS server is a host on the Internet that translates Internet names (such as www
addresses) to numeric IP addresses. Typically your ISP provides the addresses of one or
two DNS servers for your use. If you entered a DNS address when you set up the modem
router, reboot your computer and verify the DNS address. Alternatively, you can configure
your computer manually with DNS addresses, as explained in your operating system
•The modem router might not be configured as the TCP/IP router on your computer.
For information about TCP/IP problems, see Troubleshoot Your Network Using the Ping
Utility on page 196.
If your computer obtains its information from the modem router by DHCP, reboot the
computer and verify the modem router address.
