    So this pops up, and I'm not to sure what it means.

    Hi, I think that you enter your routers address (if you have one) in there or some public DNSes. Strange though, it should auto connect really.:confused:

    A DNS server retrives/routes web page domain names. Hope this is useful to you.

    Sounds like your internet connection is down. Usually a DNS server is provided by your ISP. I'd call them to get things sorted out.

    It may have connected after i took this screenshot, and was just down for a couple seconds or minutes, because my internet is working fine. It's just alittle weird, and I wasn't sure.

    I suppose if I have any more problems, thanks for the tips :).
