helo there,
I bought a new laptop HP Pavilion dv6, i7 - Home Premium 64bit.
when I opened for the first time everything was perfect except network connection.
first it was saying 'DHCP is not enable' after windows diagnosing,
however I solved that by searching on google..
now it says after "windows diagnose" DNS SERVER IS NOT RESPONDING''
I can see wireless connections and I can connect with them, but a yellow triangle appears on wireless sign.
what I should do now, please suggest.. thnx

Go to the Network and Sharing Center then on the left Manage Network Connections. Select your adapter and right click then Properties. Select Internet protocol Version 4 and click the properties button. See if the dot is in "Obtain DNS Server Automatically". If it is not, put it there. If it already is there click on "Use the following DNS addresses" and enter the following values. and OK and apply where necessary. Restart the computer and see if things got better.
