Default DNS Issues Setting Up Panasonic Viera Cast

I have a WNR2000 v1 router that i setup through my cable modem. Everything worked fine with the setup CD. When I connected the router to the tv and attempted to access Viera Cast I get error message that "DNS name is invalid." I am using the router wirelessly as the cable modem is in another room and using the Lan to connect to the tv from the router.

I have reset the router and the modem and went through the setup again. The setup was successful however i continue to get the same error message. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this?
