      DNS what does it mean

      Hi,
      I wondered if you can help me, every now and then i cannot connect to the internet or xbox live, when i run a test on the xbox it tells me the DNS has failed. Firstly what does DNS mean, and why does this happen, a quick reboot of the router and all is well again but i do wonder what this is and why.
      So any help would be much appreciated
      many Thanks
