router/modem won't let me see t'internet ?

Been offline for a couple of days - it is New Year ! :mrgreen:

As expected, I couldn't change the DNS settings on wifes laptop without an administrator password so went for Astra99's suggestion: -

set the DNS addresses in the router to and

Reset router as above (all the lights were green) and PC DNS to auto, but was back to the usual - Ping 209.85...OK - but nothing else, (wifes laptop couldn't get any internet pages either).

Decided to follow Igorian's earlier suggestion - No, I didn't bin the Belkin (came close)- I installed the firmware Beta update and did a hard reset.

Result !!! :eek:

All internet pages are working on both PC and laptop. I have even re-booted everything a couple of times to check and still OK. Router is using same DNS as I posted ^^^^ but is working :cool:

Next step will be to disconnect the ethernet cable from the PC and move the router nearer the main phone-socket (at the other end of the house) for best performance. The PC does have a WiFi connection which has worked with laptops in the past (but can't be used with wife's work-laptop).

If I have any further problems I know where to find the help.
Many thanks and a Very Happy New Year :D
