DNS sever is not responding

Level 1

Hi, I can't connect to the internet using Wi-Fi or with an Ethernet cable, I keep getting the message "DNS server not responding" , also my landline phone isn't working either, what could be causing this problem?


I've reset and power off the modern. It doesn't work.


The land line is also dead!!

The exact same thing has been happening to me all night. I have had to work via hotspot on my phone. It’s hopeless and unacceptable.
