    Hey folks,

    I tried logging on to Live for the first time last night, unsuccesfully. The IP address configures automatically with no problems. However, it cannot detect my DNS settings automatically.

    I have a wireless network at home with no problems (I definately have an "always on" broadband net cnnx).

    I guess I'll have to configure my Live DNS manually. Where abouts in XP would I find the appropriate DNS settings? Should I input the Router DNS or ADSL modem DNS settings (I assume there's an important difference ?).

    Cheers,
    DT

    I'm pretty sure DNS settings are ISP specific. I know my NTL ones are. Your ISP's homepage should have some help page on this stating what their DNS settings are, or failing that Google it and some help forum will have them somewhere.
