There are a few possibilities here.  One of the more common ones is that you haven't paid your internet service bill, and they've turned off your connection to the internet.  If so, you can usually still get to your ISP's address (e.g., verizon.net or comcast.net), where you will be prompted to log in and give new credit card information.

Another possibility is that you have a spyware/adware/virus/malware infection.  You'd need to install and run a package like SpyBot, AVG, or BitDefender (all free and quite good).  Since you can't surf to these sites, you'd need to download the package onto a flash drive from a connected computer.

Another possibility is that there really is a problem with the upstream DNS server or your computer's TCP/IP (internet) settings.  Getting to these settings is different for different versions of the Windows operatingn system (grrr... Bill Gates is the devil incarnate).  Usually, setting the DNS server to be selected by DHCP works.  Alternatively, you can manually specify the OpenDNS servers:
208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

If the problem really is with the upstream DNS server, you'd still be able to connect to purely numeric IP addresses, like, for Google:
http://64.233.161.147

If that numeric address won't work, you might need to look at your upstream connection devices, like router or modem or the physical wire/cable connection to the modem.

Can a magnavox smart Tv surf the web?


Philips Magnavox has designed televisions offering a number of different features and options that provide users optimal viewing experience and facilitate ease of use.
One such feature found in certain models is known as Smart Surf.
Smart Surf

The Smart Surf feature allows the user to store previously viewed channels as a series of select favorites, and to surf between those channels by repeatedly pressing the "Surf" button on the television's remote control.
The user can also delete the channels stored in this group and add different ones at a later time.
Stored Channels, TVs
The maximum number of channels that can be saved in the Smart Surf feature varies by model. Some (including the 13MT143S and 20MS233S) allow five, some (TS2554C) allow eight, and some (MX2797B) up to 10.
This feature is found mainly on older CRT TVs, as the the channel search and selection options in LCD TVs and/or their connected digital cable/satellite set-top receiver boxes have made it unnecessary.
Usage
Select a channel, either by using the "CH+" or "CH-" buttons or entering the channel's number. Press "Surf" while the channel number is displayed and press the right arrow button to add that channel. Press "Surf" repeatedly to scan through the saved channels.
To remove a channel, press "Surf" and the right arrow key again while the channel number is displayed.

Surf the Web on Your TV
As the technology that brings us the Internet merges more and more with the technology that brings us traditional television content, we will find ourselves watching TV shows on the computer and watching Internet content on our TV sets.
There are several ways to get Internet on your TV, though most may not be as satisfying as actually using your computer to surf the Web.
Connect TV to Laptop as Second Monitor
Connect your TV and your laptop computer using an S-video cable.
Connect the audio using a component audio cable with red and white connectors.
If your laptop doesn't have component audio, use an adapter that transfers the signal from both cables into one connector, which will plug into the headphone jack on your laptop.


Choose the input mode on the TV that corresponds to the type of connection you are using. Press the monitor button on your laptop.
This is probably a combination of the shift key and one of the function keys.


Tweak the monitor connections under "Display Settings" if necessary.
Choose a low resolution for the TV, which should show up as a second monitor. Select "Advanced Options" in the Display Settings box and choose "generic TV" as the monitor type.


You should now have the option to see items on your TV.
The TV will either have the same icons on both the laptop screen and the TV, or you can choose "extend the desktop onto this monitor" in Display Settings, and then drag items to the TV from the laptop screen.
You will be able to see the Internet and control things using the controls on the laptop.

TV with Internet Capability

Connect your TV to the Internet according to the TV manufacturer's instructions.
TVs with this type of port include Panasonic VIERA, Sharp LC series and Panasonic TC-PS1 series.


Navigate the menu using the TV remote and following any instructions in the TV manual relating to using the Internet.
Select the desired content and watch it.


Be aware that this type of TV may only show Internet content provided by websites and companies that have partnered with the TV manufacturer for inclusion.

Internet-enabled Game Console

Connect the game console to the TV and ensure there is a wireless Internet connection available. Alternatively, connect an Ethernet cable directly to the game console.


Using the game controller, choose the Internet channel. You can surf using a menu or enter a website URL with a virtual keyboard, or you can attach a USB keyboard to the game console.


Results may vary and this will not be as satisfying as surfing the Internet using a computer, but some websites will work well and all should be accessible.

Set-top Box

Connect a set-top box, such as a Roku, Sony Bravia, or NetGear ITV2000 to your TV.


Make sure a high-speed Internet connection is available.
This may be accessed wirelessly or through an Ethernet cable connected to the set-top box.


Select from the menu to choose content. Be aware that this option, like the Internet TV option, may limit you to content from providers that partner with the box manufacturers, and that you may not be able to use the entire Internet.

Laptop is showing that my wifi is picking up excellent service but when i try to surf each page shows " webpage may be temporarily down"


Hi,

Try connecting to known sites like Yahoo or Hotmail. If it shows the same message, kindly check your browser's internet connection setup.
If you are using IE:

1) Go to Tools->Internet Options.
2) Click the Connections Tab folder.
3) Click the LAN Settings button.
4) Make sure the Automatically detect settings is ticked.
5) Don't tick the Use automatic configuration script.
6) Don't tick the Use proxy server for your LAN for now.
7) Click OK. Then Click OK again.
8) See if you can surf to the website. if not, Do Step 1 to Step 5. Click Use proxy server for the LAN. You need to type the address and port number for this. You have to ask your internet provider for this or your System Admin person.

If you can surf to yahoo, then probably the website you are trying to surf is down.
