When i click more options, by chance, i get one blank field as primary dns suffic name left default as blank.
I just entered the computer name in it and reboot it as required,
there was no blinking or connection loss during the booting.
What is this blank to do with the error message is not known.
Should it be filled. But , i did not get alert to fill this.
anyhow, what this primary dns suffix, can i give any name? or is a ploy to watch browsing history by ISP or not. I do not see the menu before this.
can i give any name , what purpose, this name to be filled. Can i leave it as blank. pl boggins.

J, Are you talking about the Network Adapter settings?....You should not enter any name here, this may be why it is appearing that you are a member of a domain.

Compare with mine, attached. Those are OpenDNS entries, yours may be different but everything else should be the same.


Does the same happen on the laptop if you disable wireless on that and wire it up ?

Indeed, from memory the laptop is XP SP3? which, unless it has been added, does not by default support IPv6, only IPv4. I have seen in some forums similar problems to J's resolved by disabling IPv6 in the network adapter's properties. YMMV.

See method 2 here to disable IPv6 on the Win 7 machine and more info on the error.

Have you tried Boggin's suggested alternative DNS servers in his previous post? Or try OpenDNS ( I use these)...

Does changing from "Auto" to "Specified" enable access to change those settings?

OK, that looks correct, but...DHCP should be enabled as you don't have a static IP address do you?


Hi, samson, Why configured dns servers shown in router, the exact ips are not shown in ipconfig /all. The dhcp, dns, and the gateway all shows my router gateway ip,
Is it correct or do have to make some changes.
Moreover i use router check beta, a nice program for the router check. Here , the configured dns server is shown as router ip, and on the details tab, it shows, the owner of the dns as Local Address, What is this. Could you explain. What is the term Local Address refers to?

Because you have set the DNS servers on the router and not the PC?, and your router has a local area network address.

I have by-heart the settings, Emptied the already configured data, reset the router, and then enter the vp 0vc1 35,pppoe protocol, channel llc, and then supplied my user id and pw to get internet access
i do not think that there is anything wrong in it.

Not true according to your screenshot, VCI shows "blank" and mode shows "bridging" not PPPoE

From memory J bought the Dlink 2730U himself, not supplied by his ISP, and his ISP is BSNL...Perhaps he can confirm?

Hi Tom, Thanks for your prompt reply. As a (struggling 'silver surfer') newbie I can't see how to start a new thread. Sorry if I'm being dim!

Hit the "New Topic" button, highlighted in the red box as shown in the attached screenshot   :wink:

False positive and ironic that Reimage marks it as "bad"  :wink:

Also - how can I get this entry into my registry - why is it missing?

After taking a registry backup first.

You would need to create a new DWORD DelayedDesktopSwitchTimeout and set the value to 5

BUT Hold fire and let Boggin review my suggestion first....I bow to his superior knowledge.

I use a custm made background on dual monitors - never a problem
It's just a very neutral sandy / textures gray background that I created myself.

May be worth a quick try with an "image" instead?

@ KR & Boggin, apologies for butting in or your ongoing diagnosis  :shy:

I came across this earlier while searching for something else and wondered if perhaps this may be the issue? Do you use a solid colour desktop background?

For VLC, I have always found that resetting preferences solved most issues.

I don't use WMP 11, so can't offer any help there, but have you seen this?

D610 Latitude by any chance  :wink:

I'm pretty sure, we need better email security ...

A good starting point would be not posting your own email address on an open forum  :rolleyes:

EDIT: It appears that your details were hacked and made public in a breach at Adobe in 2013, enter your email here to confirm....

Dunno Rick, maybe for people like you to repost what you consider suspect links on forums and to help them achieve their goal, whatever that may be. :rolleyes:

I doubt that someone in China is stupid enough to try and hack Alibaba...

That assumption would appear to be incorrect.....

Who is Fiddy :)

Fifty "Fiddy" Cent - An American rapper.

I think Rick was referring to the Chinese tech giant Tencent in this instance, his ire may be better directed to them elsewhere rather than here.

Who is Tencent ?

Fiddy's little brother  :wink:

I don't know about the BSOD, it could be RAM influenced and simply removing and reseating the RAM fixed it.

Not worth putting any money into a graphics card for that machine, if the graphics work OK for day to day tasks, then it is fine.

Benchmarks are less important than how it works for you in the real world.

"Auto  tuned" I dont know what you mean....It is not a "tuning" tool it just reports on your installed hardware's performance capability.

your integrated graphics is highligted as the weak link in your system's performance, hence the low score ( max is 7.9).  Did you click on "?" for more information.

If you can find a really cheap/ free graphics card you may raise the score.....But again, do you really want to put any more money into this?

If you are no longer getting BSOD, then I'd say it is resolved.

Windows Experience Index will give a pass mark for your current hardware.

The P4 processor is over 13 years old, XP era, and single core. I would have thought that at least a Core 2 Duo was better for that motherboard and windows 7. But if it works for you, then fair enough I guess. I just hope that you did n't pay a lot for it, the money may have been better used put towards a newer machine.

Is it working OK? A P4 works in a LGA775 socket.

It is quite an old processor, maybe unsupported in the BIOS. I'd suggest that your techie has put the cheapest CPU that was kicking around in that board.
