Sounds like either a cable has come unplugged/broken, the router/modem is on its way out, or your DNS cache needs to be cleared.
In this order:
Unplug the modem and/or router power cords. While unplugged, make sure the cat5 cables are connected securely(if using wired net).
Wait about 30 seconds to a minute, then plug the modem and/or router back in.

Test your internet connection.

If there still no connection to the internet, Click Ctar>Run, type in cmd, hit enter. This opens the command prompt.
On the black screen, type in ipconfig/flushdns
Close the command prompt, and re-test your internet connection.

If it still fails, verify with your ISP that your internet connection is active, and try a different router and/or modem.

Dns error or server error in video


Neither of these errors are caused by you, or your machine The
Domain Name System
is the process that translates your typed internet address (URL) to the IP address of the site you are trying to reach. Unless the site has gone away, the error is usually temporary.
Server error is also not your fault, it is an error on the remote computer and is usually followed by an error code. More Here:

OUTLOOK ERROR 550 5.7.1 Your email contained wrongly placed script tags. Please correct this (try setting your mail program to use plain text) and resend your message. PLZ REPLAY FAST


If you are receiving an error when sending email using Outlook:

"The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. Server Response: '550 not local host, not a gateway', Port: 25, Secure (SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number: 0x800CCC79"


Open your Outlook settings (Tools > Accounts)
Go to View/Change email account for the email account you are having problems with.
Check that the SMTP Server is set to yourdomain.com
Go into the "More settings", "Outgoing Server" tab and make sure that the option "My server requires authentication" for the Outgoing server is checked ON.


Save and close all windows.

Try again.

If the problem continues then the problem is that your Internet Service Provider is blocking the mail server. ISPs do this to prevent spam on their network. When this happens you will need to use the mail server that they provide you instead of your own. The mail server is generally smtp.yourISPname.com, however, it could be different so please contact your ISP to get the details.

If you do not want to use your ISPs server for SMTP, and the ISP is blocking port 25, you can switch the port to 587 for your outgoing mail and use mail.yourdomain,com for the SMTP server name.

I have trouble browsing the internet. I often get this message: Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage


You might be having a DNS problem. DNS (Domain name system) is responsible for changing the website name to the address (where the website is stored). You can try openDNS (www.opendns.com) The site can be confusing so here are the instructions. 1. Go to control panel > network connections 2. Choose the connection that gives you internet, right click on it and Click properties 3. Now select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click properties 4. Check the box that says "Use the following DNS addresses" 5. Enter the following values (addresses) 208.67.222.222 208.67.220.220

The issue is: Unable to Send/Receive emails from winThe host 'POP3' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'POP3', Server: 'POP3', Protocol: POP3, Port:...


You are receiving this error because of one of two reasons:
1) Your email account is not set up properly. Click on Microsoft Outlook, click on Tools, then Accounts. You will see a window with columns stating Account-Type-Connection. If an account is set up then click on it then click on Properties. Click server tab and you will see the SMTP server block and the POP3 server block. Both of these fields will read as follows: pop.XXXXX.net and smtp.XXXXX.net. Your Internet Service Providers name will be in the XXXX. If these are not set up properly then you cannot connect to send email. If they are filled out correctly then you need to call your Internet Service Provider and inform them of your situation. Their server is not working properly.

Don't forget to 4 star this solution.

I cant get onto internet explorer it says dns error can you help?


Check out your internet connection and its settings, whether it is dial up or broadband oriented.
then you have to know about your ip address of dns server in the network setting places.
you just ping the ip address of dns server following as...

go to start, then run and type "cmd", and it shows the command prompt. type as following format.

ping 10.10.10.5 and press enter key.. this is the sample ip address only. if it gets reply, your dns server is ok. you can use internet. suppose, it wont comes, ask your service provider or support for another or different ip address of dns to check it out.

Dns error


DNS = Domain Name Server

This is a set of specialized servers on the Internet, needed to
translate user friendly internet address such as:

www.microsoft.com

into their binary IP address equivalents, such as:

www.microsoft.com =
207.46.192.254 = (IP address)
$CF 2E C0 FE = (hexadecimal)
1100 1111 0010 1110 1100 0000 1111 1110 (binary)



In order to communicate with Microsoft, your computer
first sends a request to the closest DNS server to resolve
the domain name into a binary address. Once it gets the
binary address of Microsoft, in then prefixes every packet
with a 32-bit destination address, followed by it own 32-bit
return address.

Other specialized computers on the Internet, called routers,
than manage the actual data transfers on a skip by skip basis.

===========

A DNS error means that your computer is either unable to reach
the pre-determined DNS server, or the server is unable to resolve
the particular address due to a non-existent WEB site or a
spelling mistake.

The actual meaning of the message depends on which layer
of the internet protocol in your computer, (or outside of it)
generated it.
