Have you performed a factory reset on the router using a paper clip on the reset button?

Usually a factory reset will allow you to re-configure properly and move on from there.  You will have to re-configure your wireless network name and password and such but other than that, it is safe unless you have custom port forwards set up or anything like that.

Can not find the DNS server
So you don't have internet at all or is it just DNS? What happens if you do a ping to an ip address (like 8.8.8.8)?
