Hi guys
I've been reading this post but, as a computer novice, I've got really confused.
I am having a problem that my ISP (Virgin Media) cannot resolve.
I have a Buffalo Air Stream router with a desktop and laptop connected. On the desktop I have an icon stating that there is limited or no connectivity so I am unable to connect to the internet. I did manage to to connect via IP number address when in safe mode and the cable modem connected directly to the PC but not when connected via the router. The lap top shows it's connected wirelessly but cannot display any internet pages.
My ISP said I had an issue of not refreshing DNS server and not taking URS form (their words).
Has any one got any ideas?

*This is a repost, I'm sorry but I posted it as a reply in another thread by mistake.*

Thanks in advance for any help offered and apologies for the previous misspost.

I've been wrestling with the problem to no avail, so I'm getting a guy to come round tomorrow who will hopefully fix the problem. It's all a bit much for my puny computer knowledge I'm afraid.
