"Windows can't communicate with the device or resource(primary DNS server)"

    Question

  • I recently bought a new laptop with windows 8. I was not able to connect to the wireless internet and cable from a few days ago.


    Network Diagnostics throws up the following error message: "Windows can't communicate with the device or resource (Primary DNS Server)."

    I have a full strength signal and I appear to be connected but there is "no internet access".


    this is really frustrating as the internet was working just a few days ago and I haven't installed/unstalled anything. I am able to connect on myold laptop without problem!!


    Thanks in advance, joy

  • Hello,

    The Windows Desktop Perfmon and Diagnostic tools forum is to discuss performance monitor (perfmon), resource monitor (resmon), and task manager, focusing on HOW-TO, Errors/Problems, and usage scenarios.

    Since your post is off-topic, I am moving it to the off topic forum.

  • Hello,

    This should have been asked in the Windows 8 forum on Microsoft Community.
