Detailed Problem definition: The problem is there is no communication to administrators, staff/students when the CS server goes down. Monitoring is done by IT staff by manually checking the PC status and other hardware statistics. There is no alerting system to notify the service and host down. Network administration department staffs finding difficulties in reports generation about the situation. Staff has a time limited window in which to deliver their lesson. If that's an online lesson and the network is running slow or down, staff will not be able to complete the lesson and the students will be moving on to the next class in their schedule. It wastes of time for staff /students. JNTU needs some system which alerts some email or text messages to staff/students.

Oops! This page appears broken. DNS Error - Server cannot be found.


The servers are located in the network by using it's ip address.
Using names for the domains is easier for humans.
A Domain Name Server (DNS) keeps track of the server ip address related with the domain name.
When an error occurs finding the corresponding ip address for the domain name, youll get the message "Oops! This page appears broken. DNS Error - Server cannot be found.".

Oops this link appears to be broken dns error - cannot find server windows 7 explorer 8


The error refers to the Domain Name Server (DNS) that your system uses is unable to translate the Uniform Resource Locator (URL, web address either Typed in the address line or linked using a hyper-link, favorite or default home page) (In english, the translation of a web address link www.google.com to the Internet Protocol (IP) address that computers actually use to show the page)
Possible causes:
  1. The URL is wrong. (Typed wrong, link no longer active, link changed)
  2. The DNS server listed for your ISP configuration is not working.
  3. The web site is offline.
  4. The DNS server settings for your internet configuration are wrong.
Possible resolutions:
  1. Try a different Web Address, see if it works
  2. Restart (Completely power off your Cable/DSL modem and then do the same with your router)
  3. Check you IP address configuration settings and ensure that auto-assign DNS is selected (Default setting)
  4. Boot to safe mode with networking, see if you can get online that way.

Today I opened 3 urls and surfed site with no problem. Then I could not open one new site and got this message ''DNS error occurred. Server cannot be found. The link may be broken'. esterdayya this site...


This could be possible when you try to surf the website that has been unavailable. There could be mistyped URL too. Make sure to type the exact website in the internet browser. Website might have been down due to problems or not paid to hosting service and was removed or stopped.

PS3 says DNS error (80710102) when i try to connect to the internet with a wired connection


Goto the command prompt bar in the start menu type ' cmd ' then click o.k . A black dos screen will appear type in ' ipconfig/all ' and it will the the two servers you need under dns servers but if your doing a wired connection to your ps3 then you need to manually configure your dns on the custom method of setting up your internet connection on your ps3 as if this is auto config that will give you a dns error. Hope that helps ,I can go into more detail and guide you through it if need to .

DNS error (80410411) cannot find server


If you are using a public router (meaning you're using just a connection from somebody else's router) prolly, you're DNS have been blocked...have you tried connecting to other sources other than the one you can't use? If you have a connection and you don't own your own wireless router, try borrowing one from someone you know first then try if it works...then that's the time you should ask for your own wireless router...
