This error seems to be related to DNS. First, see if you have am internet connection. Verifying this can be done various ways depending on your setup and operating system. The quickest and most universal way is to launch another browser (Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.) and see if you can view Google or another common site. IF you can, then it is likely that the proxy settings in Chrome are incorrect. If not then you may have a problem with your network adapter settings or the setup of whatever gear you have that connects your computer to your ISP. For any deeper troubleshooting we'll need to know what your setup is.

How do I turn on my wireless connection

If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on.
Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks.
This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop.
When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks.
If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off.
Locate the wireless switch on your computer.
It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front.
If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit.
Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position.
The switch will be clearly labeled.
Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on.
If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability.
The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys.
Check your user manual for your computer's key combination.

Who invented the internet system of comunication?

Source: ""

Answer: The Internet was originally developed by DARPA - the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency - as a means to share information on defense research between involved universities and defense research facilities.

Originally it was just email and FTP sites as well as the Usenet, where scientists could question and answer each other. It was originally called ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency NETwork). The concept was developed starting in 1964, and the first messages passed were between UCLA and the Stanford Research Institute in 1969. Leonard Kleinrock of MIT had published the first paper on packet switching theory in 1961. Since networking computers was new to begin with, standards were being developed on the fly. Once the concept was proven, the organizations involved started to lay out some ground rules for standardization.

One of the most important was the communications protocol, TCP/IP, developed by Vint Cerf and Robert Kahn in 1974. Robert Metcalfe is credited with Ethernet, which is the basic communication standard in networked computers.

Tim Berners-Lee, who perhaps specified technological applicability and/or linguistic construction of HTML while working at CERN, is chiefly credited for the ease of use and wide public adoption of the web. His website is:

Al Gore really did have a substantial part in the US legal framework and governmental issues related to the Internet; he never said he invented it.

There wasn't just ONE person who invented the Internet. The Internet is just a way to view files and information that someone puts onto a server. The Internet is just a way to access the information.

Leonard Kleinrock was the first person to write a paper on the idea of packet switching (which is essential for the Internet to work. He wrote this idea in 1961.

Others who were essential to what we now call the Internet. (Without these guys, the Internet wouldn't exist):

Larry G. Roberts created the first functioning long-distance computer networks in 1965 and designed the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET), the seed from which the modern Internet grew, in 1966.

Bob Kahn and Vint Cerf invented the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) which moves data on the modern Internet, in 1972 and 1973. If any two people "invented the Internet," it was Kahn and Cerf - but they have publicily stated that "no one person or group of people" invented the Internet.

Radia Perlman invented the spanning tree algorithm in the 1980s. Her spanning tree algorithm allows efficient bridging between separate networks. Without a good bridging solution, large-scale networks like the Internet would be impractical.

There are many reasons that Internet Explorer could be encountering this issue. Some examples are connectivity to your ISP, a firewall blocking your connection, or your networking device not functioning properly. Here are some things that you can try:
Method 1: Run the Network Diagnostics tool in Internet Explorer
1. Start Internet Explorer, and then try to access the Web page that is displaying the error message.
2. On the page that displays an Internet Explorer error message, click the Diagnose Connection Problems link. The Network Diagnostics tool will run. When the tool has finished running, it will report one of the following results:
    • It was unable to find a problem.
    • It has detected a problem. Additionally, the tool will provide guidance about the next steps to take to troubleshoot the problem.
3. Click IP Address, and note the IP Address. You may need it for future troubleshooting.
4. Follow the steps in the Network Diagnostics tool to fix any connection problems.
5. Start Internet Explorer.
If you receive the same error message, go to the next method.
Method 2: Reset the modem or the router
1. Disconnect the cable that connects the computer to the modem.
2. Turn off the modem and the router.
Note: If the modem or the router does not have a power switch, disconnect the power to the modem or to the router.
3. Restart the computer.
4. After your computer has restarted, turn on the modem or the router, connect the cable from the computer to the modem or the router, and restart the computer.
5. Make sure that all network cables are securely connected.
6. Start Internet Explorer.
If you receive the same error message, go to the next method.
Method 3: Use the Delete Browsing History feature
If resetting the modem or the router did not resolve the problem, deleting your browsing history might help. Follow these steps to remove your temporary Internet files, history, and form data:
1. Start Internet Explorer.
2. Click the Safety button, and then click Delete Browsing History.
3. Select the check box next to each category of information you want to delete.
4. Select the Preserve Favorites website data check box if you do not want to delete the cookies and files associated with websites in your Favorites list.
5. Click Delete. (This could take awhile if you have a lot of files and history.)
6. Close Internet Explorer, start Internet Explorer again, and then try to access the Web page.
If you receive the same error message, go to the next method.
Method 4: Use the Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) mode
1. To do this, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

If this resolves the issue, follow these steps to isolate the browser add-on that is causing the issue:

  1. Click Tools, and then click Internet Options.
  2. Click the Programs tab, and then click Manage add-ons.
  3. Click an add-on in the Name list, and then click Disable.
  4. Repeat step 3 until you identify the add-on that is causing the issue.

Internet explorer will not work It says cannot display webpage at the bottom it says DNS error

I have to assume your are using Windoze XP or Vista.

Sounds to me like any number of problems. It could be your firewall, your antivirus, your network adapter drivers, the network adapter settings or you could have a virusor other type of malware.

My first guess is that your network adapter settings need to be repaired or the IE8 explorer settings for connecting to a newtwok need to be configured.

You need to troubleshoot your your home network.

Why does it take a long time to carry out basic task like going through emails.when getting on line would experience long delays in spite of having broad band? I have to sut down and reboot almost all the...

Assuming you are saying mostly when working on Internet you are having slow performance issues.

Causes can be from a number of sources. Are you connecting wireless to Internet? Source signal may be to weak or unstable. Preferrable to keep signal at 80% or better.

Web sites and how your connectivity navigates through the Internet cloud (server to server to server and so on) can be hampered by any point along the way.

If you are using a wireless router that is shared by mulitple computers, try isolating and removing other computers and any network devices (wireless print servers). You can also try connecting with an Ethernet cable directly to router or modem.

New os xp install can'tfigure out how to connect

XP will easily configure the internet system and get it working if you go to the control panel and click "Network" then "Troubleshoot".
If it does not work after that, then one of the accessories is bad or not compatible. It also makes a difference if you connect with a dial-up modem or if using an ethernet card. XP will detect a wireless signal also and configure your modem on newer laptops. Older systems may not have built-in wireless.
