    I would be browsing the web when sudden 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". Not sure why this is happening. Nothing else is having internet problems just my laptop, how could I fix this?
