Re: dns look-up failed

done what you said plus turned off firewall at network connections it worked untill i updated my avg then had to restart my pc then when it rebooted it had stopped working again saying dns lookup failed as before. also i noticed that my optiplex pc says when i click on network connections it says local connection 2 and is connecting by broadcom netxtreame 57xx gigabit c and my working pc says local connection and is connecting by nvidia nforce networking controller. does this mean anything
