Xbox Dns Errordns
Posted 13 April 2013 - 11:20 AM
So since the last day I last asked the questions about LT+2.0 and 3.0 I have not touched my xbox...and I am trying now to connect and test for internet connection and it keeps giving me a DNS error! "The DNS server can't resolve XBOX Live server names. This may be a problem outside your home network, and you may need to contact your ISP."
...and this is the error status report:
etc...the rest are my router config
Is there any fix to this pls! Kindly assist!

You may contact your ISP provider for more help

In order to manually enter DNS settings, you will have to obtain them from another network computer. If you are using Windows Vista, click "Start" and type CMD in the search box and press "Enter." If you're using Windows XP, then click "Start" followed by "Run." In the Run box, type CMD. Once the command window opens, type "ipconfig/all" and press "Enter." The network's IP information will appear in the command window. Locate lines of text that contain "DNS Servers." Write the two sets of numbers down. The first set (e.g.,192.168.0.1) will be input as your primary DNS, and the second set (e.g., 192.168.0.2) is your secondary DNS.
In the Xbox system's "DNS Settings" tab, select "Manual" instead of "Automatic" DNS settings and select "Primary DNS Server." Enter the first set of numbers you wrote down earlier. Then select "Secondary DNS Server" and enter the last set of numbers. Select "Done" and try connecting to Xbox Live again.

In most cases, a reboot or even a system reset is normally enough to flush the DNS cache and allow the router to build a fresh table.
Manually setting the DNS on the xbox to match your ipconfig settings only does just that; match the settings.
If there is a fault with the DNS server itself, simply matching the settings will not work.
That said, manual config does good if your dns/dhcp/ servers and gateway are always on your home,local network as the xbox will not be constantly chatting to the router when it boots up.
Another DNS server will also be outside your own home network, usually hosted in a CMTS outside in your street (if on a cable network), or a DSLAM in a local exchange (if on ADSL connection).
This server is where most of your forward lookups will be performed by your own DNS server, and it will likely be that one that has issues.
If that is the case then unfortunately it is the ISP that has to deal with it.
Regional, hierarchal DNS servers are a critical component of the day to day functioning of the Internet.
ISP's are well aware of this and always make DNS issues a priority so it should quickly be sorted soon, if not already!
