I don't know origin of 67....., it does not appear in any DUN screen, but
at that time I am looking at a website.
As per your information below your connection is set to obtain the DNS
Server addresses automatically so you are being given the above server
This is your your IP address:
And this is the DNS server that you (or your ISP) are using:
Possibly you might not be authorized to use these DNS severs.
Added my ISP DNS address, unchecked automatic and selected manual, in DNS
screen, added DNS address, closed screen, dialed up, open browser, no luck.
Then checked DUN properties again, my changes were gone, default was back
These things don't change by themselves, possible causes:
1- You are not properly saving the changes.
2- Your firewall, AV program or other security applications is
preventing changes to the settings.
3- Malware is at play.
I would not only disable the firewall while troubleshooting this, I
would completely remove (uninstall it), network problems are often
caused by misbehaved firewalls.
Maybe no help, but I'll again mention the change was internal to my
registry, I was offline, browsing was normal until I selected a (too old)
registry and rebooted.
Windows 2000 does not usually take too kindly to these kind of things!
You should forget your Windows 98 remedies when working with Windows
2000, swapping old registry files is usually left for last ditch efforts
and non booting installations, it might get an installation booted again
but the integrity of the operating system is often left compromised
beyond trust. Rather than 'fixing' the firewall you figured that it was
easier to do a heart transplant on the operating system and it looks
like the patient is having post-op complications...
