Can't connect to internet, maybe DNS problem.
Posted on 2006-06-19
Hi all, I have a Windows2000 with me, I just ran Avgfree (antivirus scan) it did found some virus and corrected them. However, after it found the virus and removed it, my computer can nolonger connect to the internet.
I went to the eventlogs and found these errors
Event ID 406
"The DNS Server could not create a User Datagram Protocol (UDP) socket. The event data is the error code. Restart the DNS server or reboot your computer.
Event ID: 408
Description: DNS Server could not open socket for address [IP address of server]. Verify that this is a valid IP address on this machine. If it is NOT valid use the Interfaces dialog under Server Properties in the DNS Manager to remove it from the list of IP interfaces. Then stop and restart the DNS server. (If this was the only IP interface on this machine and the DNS server may not have started as a result of this error. In that case remove the DNS\Parmeters\ListenAddress value in the services section of the registry and restart.) If this is a valid IP address for this machine, make sure that no other application (e.g. another DNS server) is running that would attempt to use the DNS port.
Event ID: 414
The DNS server computer currently has no DNS domain name. Its DNS name is a single label hostname with no domain (example: "host" rather than "host.microsoft.com").
I'm not connected to any domain, only workgroup
When i try to start my DNS server service, i get an error 6: Handle Is Invalid
my question is
1. In winXP there's no DNS server.. least not in the services.. but in Win2k, do i need this thing started to surf the net?
2. If not, how do i diagnose my problem and fix it?
3. If so, How do i fix it.
