Connection Issue

Recommended Posts

This is bugging the hell out of me. I'm having an issue with my Switch. Obviously I'm online with my PC. My phone has internet. I downloaded a game that I got here from @DC in the bid for rewards board a couple hours ago onto my Xbox. My Switch however, will not connect to the internet I keep getting the error message "Could not perform DNS name resolution." I don't know what the hell that means, and I've also never had this problem before with my Switch. I've been troubleshooting all damn day, and can't figure out anything. I can't download any kind of update because obviously that requires an online connection. It connects to my network device (router?) but won't connect to the internet. I have entered and reentered my password about 30 times so far. I have also restarted, and just shut it off for a while several times. No help there either. I'm completely at a loss.

Does anyone have any idea what the problem is?

Ugh. KMNP.

Try power cycling the router.  Turn it off, dissconect it from the socket, leave it for about 10 seconds then plug in and turn it back on.

You will need to log into your router.  There should be a sticker on it with an I.P address, something like 192.168.1.1, along with a username and password (if there isn't, the password and username are usually admin by default).  Open a web browser on your PC and type http:// followed by the I.P address to log in.

 

One logged in, post a screenshot so I can take a look.
