Can't ping isp DNS or Internet

Hi

For some reason I can't ping the dns or browse to the Internet.

I have a cisco 851W

I have DSL and setup to dhcp.

When I do a show ip int 4 it shows a ip address picked up for my ISP. So  I know I can get a IP address but I can't ping the DNS which is

72.235.80.12 and 72.235.80.4

Thanks.

Re: Can't ping isp DNS or Internet

Hello Tony,

Can you remove the default route you have in the configuration?

no ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 FastEthernet4

Then, bounce the FastEthernet 4 interface. That should allow the ISP to set

the default route.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

NT

Re: Can't ping isp DNS or Internet

Hi, Tony.

If you can't ping your ISP DNS but you can ping ISP default GW, this means your ISP DNS has a problem.

I do see this kind of problem from my ISP too.

Try to use public well known DNS server, like 4.2.2.2.

I usually configure my dhcp server to use one of my ISP dns and secondary as 4.2.2.2

ip name-server 72.235.80.12
ip name-server 4.2.2.2.

Try to ping 4.2.2.2 from your router. If you can't ping, then your ISP has a problem.

Re: Can't ping isp DNS or Internet

Hi KK

I still can't get out to the Internet.

If I use my other router I can ping both DNS and go to the Internet fine.

I just have this problem with the cisco router.

Any other suggestions?

thanks

btw cant ping 4.2.2.2 either but I can ping the gateway fine.

if i'm on my linksys router I can ping 4.2.2.2 and 72.235.80.12 just fine but not on the cisco router.
