I have a blog and I recently moved to another hosting company. I have two laptops, a sony vaio and a macbook pro. I have noticed that I can access my blog only from the sony vaio. Using terminal on both laptops I get the following results :

Vaio Terminal


Server : pirelli.router Address : my router's ip here

DNS request timed out. timeout was 2 seconds. Name : Address : my blog ip here

MacBook Pro Terminal


Server : (My isp's primary dns server) Address :

** server can't find NXDOMAIN

I have to note here that my macbook pro is connected on the modem-router(pirelli) using an airport express router. Thank you.
