Cant get open dns to work, No thats not my ip, changed my dns to the other xtra ones and it has fixed steam but now gmail isn't working. Thanks for the help though

Try connecting to say vodafones DNS servers 203. 109. 129. 67 and 203. 109. 129. 68, or try opendns servers 208. 67. 220. 220 and 208. 67. 222. 222

Hmmm have you tried installing mint?

yea the vodafone ones are working on the second computer, currently updating steam so don't want to upset that. should be done soon though so then i will try gmail through this computer. mint? (linux os im guessing? ) Haven't tried it I just stick to xp, does everything I need

bit of a pointless suggestion.
suggesting maybe google's dns servers would have made more sense than that.

I think you'll find gmail is down rather than vodafones or opendns DNS servers not resolving the address
