    My son has a laptop that is running Windows 8

    When he tries to get on the internet using WI-FI he gets the message "DNS not responding"...he can get on the internet using a wire connection.

    It is the same in all Browsers.. He has deleted and reinstalled his browsers.

    We have two other lap tops that use the WI-FI so I don't think there is anything wrong with the modem.

    If he does a system restore then he can use the WI-FI until he shuts the lid (his laptop goes to sleep) then when it wakes up it is back to "DNS not responding"

    Any help Please

    Hi and welcome to Computer Help Forums.
    Try these possible fixes.

    1 Update your WiFi/Network adapter drivers.

    2Disable the power management feature in network adapters

    a)Press Windows Key and X Key, select Device Manager.

    b)Expand the network adapter, right click on the respective network adapter and select Properties.

    c)Uncheck the box which states “Allow this device to Wake the Computer”.

    d)Click on OK.

    His wireless network adapter DNS server settings can be different from this wired network adapter.

    Here'a an article that describes how to check the DNS server settings.

    Check to see what the wireless and wired DNS server settings are. Most often, they are set to Obtain automatically. Note: the wired network adapter may be called Local Area Connection.

    You may need to update the access code to you WiFi modem on the faulty system. In other words, remove and reinstall the WiFi network connection on the faulty system.

    At the command prompt, type the following commands. Press Enter after each command.

    ipconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /registerdns
    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /renew


    Do you have IP Address assigned or any configuration setting in the Internet Protocol Versions 4/6?
