My laptop DNS Server has stopped working.
The DNS server is a service provided by your ISP. While there's likely nothing wrong with your laptop, you might want to open Services.msc, then restart the DNS Client, or just stop it.
Conventional DNS servers are widely available. I use Google's servers (184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11), and have used those from Speakeasy, NTT Communications, and Level 3 Communications; they're all quick and reliable. OpenDNS is just as reliable, in my experience, but provides additional features for safer browsing, which you should learn about.
To use OpenDNS, ignore their Web site content and just set these addresses — 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124. You do not need to sign up for a service or provide any information.
