Hi,

for some reason the DNS server your trying to access isn't recognizing your IP adress of your computer Just as a refresher, a DNS Server resolves domain names to ip adresses You need to get a new IP adress for your computer.Another possibility might be that the DNS server is down that you are trying to access??I pinged www.whitehouse.com and got an IP adress 209.67.27.248??
