      DHCP DNS not being issued

      Hi All,

      I just got my new SKY BB connected, and after setting up my laptop and opening my browser, I cannot browse the Internet.

      On the router I see that its connected, and have DNS server addresses, and I can ping INTERNET IP addresses from the diagnostic menu.

      On My Laptop, I can ping Internet IP's, but cannot resolve names for example ping google.com

      I have not tried to set static ip's etc as yet, but am curious if anyone has seen this?

      Regards

      Vern

      It has been reported as happening on some of the 2304Ns. Try resetting the router by pushing a pin in the reset hole at the rear. Hold it there for 10 secs or until the lights flash.

      If that fails set up fixed IPs on your devices in the range 192.168.0.2-254, until Sky give you a fix..
