Re: dns

I tried that previously but didn't work. Spoke to BT who said turn off BT protect,shut down then wait a minimum of 4 hours to see if that does it. I'm waiting at the moment and will post back if I have success. Thanks for help .

When you have checked and corrected the settings on the laptop, if its a Windows laptop, at the command prompt, type:-

ipconfig /flushdns

then press return
