DNS

Most of the time a primary DNS will suffice and this is usually provided automatically to computers with that option enabled. But if you are forced to input a DNS server all you need to do is go to a computer on your network and open a command prompt and type "ipconfig /all" without the quotes and you should have all the info you need.

Punt.

Use the first as your secondary. That is, if primary is 1.2.3.4, put that as the secondary as well.

Now I'm confused.

Are you offering help or in need of help?

Today, nearly six years later my answers change from the above. I will only answer that I'd use the Google DNS for a trial run then will lock this old thread.

As this is from 2005, let's call it closed.
