Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you are getting DNS lookup errors then your DNS server can’t find the IP address of the site you are looking for, for some reason. Either the DNS server that host’s the DNS for that site is down, there is a network problem, or the cache files for your DNS server have become corrupt, or your DNS server config isn’t up to the load being placed on it.

If the DNS Server is your ISPs DNS server there isn’t much you can do to fix it. You can try using the Google DNS server 8.8.8.8 as your primary DNS server as see if that fixes it.
