PC your computer needs to know the DNS address. The DNS allows the computer to translate a site name (e.g.
www.solwise.co.uk) into a valid IP address. If you have a single PC dial up connection using a single connection device such
as a USB or PCI modem then your ISP will send the DNS address to your PC when it connects. However this doesn't normally

connects to your ISP. Then, if you use DHCP or DNS relay (see below) the router can automatically inform your PC what
address to use for DNS.
