Default Network problem, please help

I feel like I have tried everthing...

Anyway what happened is I brought a 750GB harddrive and installed it and put Ubuntu on it. (I have a 160GB HDD with Vista Ultimate on it)

After installing Ubuntu I've had some problems with my internet on my desktop. When I diagnose this problem i found out that when it pings my DNS server ( it times out. My desktop has both Wireless and Cable both neither of them seem to work.


Ive tried ipconfig /release /renew /flushdns /registerdns none worked. flushdns gave me "Could not flush the DNS resolver Cache: Function failed during execution"
registerdns gave me Registration of the DNS records failed: The RPC server is unavailable.

Ubuntu has no luck either when I am trying to connect to my home network. I have restarted the router and modem numerous of times and I do not know what else to do.

Could anyone help me?

--Much appreciated.

Do not worry, I fixed it.

My Router ( added my desktop's I.P into its blacklist (Intrusion detection or something orather) and I added an excempt and now I can access the internet just fine!

:-) I am very happy
