Problem Accessing a Specific Website ?

Problem accessing a specific site ? Try these solutions.

Clear your browser cache

Try clearing your browser cache. If you are unsure about how to do this; please follow this link : Click here

Sometimes this won’t work and you may need to try something else, if clearing your browser cache is not working for you then now it’s time to do a little trick. We need to flush(clear) our local DNS cache (This is very useful while you are busy moving your site; mostly because your local dns cache usually remembers the previous results for a few more minutes.) Let us see how to clear the local dns cache.

Clearing Local DNS cache (Windows)

If you are using windows then you have to open your command window (go tostart menu -> click on run -> type cmd there and press enter.), make sure you have administrative privilege to do this. Now you have to type a command inorder to clear your DNS cache.


ipconfig /flushdns


this will help you clear the local dns cache (If you are on windows vista you have to start your command prompt with administrative privilege; which can be done by typing cmd in the search field in start menuand then right click and you will see a Run as administrator option and execute the above command)


Clearing Local DNS cache (Linux)


I am using Ubuntu; by default it doesn’t come with the daemon to flush the local DNS cache; so if you are using Ubuntu linux then you will have to install nscddaemon by running the following command in your terminal.


sudo apt-get install nscd


Once nscd daemon is installed you can run by typing the following command

sudo /etc/init.d/nscd restart

If you are using other Linux flavors probably you can try this and see if it works.


try this command in your terminal : /etc/rc.d/init.d/nscd restart


Still your problem is not solved ?

Then most probably it has something to do with your Internet Service Providers DNS cache; So call then and tell your problem, they will provide you with an alternative proxy address, or they will solve the problem for you.


If you are a Virgin Meda Broadband user in UK, then try this


I use the Virgin Media Broadband; they have provided me with a new proxy address : webcache.virginmedia.com and port: 8080


(Follow the instructions here to set up your proxy settings)

Help: trouble shooting If nothing else has fixed your problem, you could try these general solutions.

Clear your cache Clear your browser's cache (the temporary files your browser stores to make sites load faster). Sometimes an old or incompatible file may be stored in your browser's cache. If you clear the cache new files will be downloaded the next time you visit the page.

Update your Flash Player Chatango runs using the Adobe Flash Player. You can download the latest version here.

Update your browser - or try a different browser Sometimes an old browser may not work well with new sites. Try getting a modern browser:
Chrome
Firefox
Internet Explorer

Check your internet connection Chatango will not work on proxy connections.
Try a different way of connecting to the internet and see if that solves your problems.
If it works on your computer or device with one connection but not another - the problem is probably with the connection.

Browser doesnt load page


Just like a computer browser, whenever you browse the internet, the G1 will download images, text, passwords, etc from all sites accessed. it places this info in a place called a 'Cache'....it can get so full it will prevent pages from loading. to fix this, clear your cache. there are 2 ways to do this.....

1: MENU > SETTINGS > APPLICATIONS > MANAGE APPLICATIONS > BROWSER > CLEAR DATA

2: BROWSER > MENU > MORE > SETTINGS > SELECT CLEAR CACHE, CLEAR HISTORY, CLEAR ALL COOKIE DATA, CLEAR PASSWORDS

after doing that, turn off and on the handheld and try it again. if you keep up on doing this everytime youre done browsing the web, it wont happen again.

good luck :)
