New Dell inspiron N7110 WI-FI cannot connect to internet

I just pulled this thing out of the box fired it up and tried to connect to the internet with my WIFI. 

It shows up on the bottme of the screen tells me I have an excellent connection and No Internet access. I took down all the firewalls thinking that was the problem but nothing. I've been at it for a while now and still nothing, the worst part is i really do not know what i'm doing. I know the router works, I use it for my nook all the time with no problems.

Try these steps

1) Disconnect all the devices from the router, turn off router, turn off system, start router wait for 5mins then start system, check.

2) If the above doesnt work start system in safe mode with networking (tap F8 the min system is turned on till you see options)

Re: New Dell inspiron N7110 WI-FI cannot connect to internet

still nothing.

I did a network and internet troubleshooting and it told me

Problems found: The DNS server isn't responding

can I fix this?

The DNS server is your ISP.  Any other device able to go online ?

Type services.msc in search (If WindowsXP go to RUN) , find 'DNS client' and restart that service.

gn2tx,

 

Try...

 

Start, control panel, networking and sharing center, click on your network, then click on properties.

 

Look for TCP/IPv4 and TCP/IPv6, then click on properties on each. Make sure your settings match mine.
