"can't find DNS server"

My A505-S69803 has a Realtek PCIe "Family Controller" for Wi Fi.  Recently it became consistently able to link to local WiFi (such as my Motorola  EOA8C wireless router/cable modem) but also consistently unable to access the internet through it.  (When troubleshooting it only will say that "DNS server is not responding")  The only solution has been to go back to mid November with "System Restore" and refuse any further Windows 7 updates.  Has anyone else faced this?

I haven't found any recent Windows 7 updates reported to make that trouble. Sounds to me like you're updating a device driver from Windows Update (a bad idea).

 

Go to Windows Update and check which updates you were installing. Put the list in your reply.
