First thing to try is unplug the router and your modem for 1 minute then plug them back in. This resets the cache in the router and modem.

Dns error


so what's the problem? Can't get to any websites? do you have a static ip and static dns or are they dynamically assigned? You may even have a bogus proxy set in your browser. Pull up a command prompt and try to ping www.google.com. If you can ping google, then dns is working fine.

Let me know what happens. Also, if you want some help, ask a question with details, don't just say 'dns error' as this is not enough information to figure out what is happening.Help us to help you.

Regards,

Joe

Cannot bring up facebook, exploer is working fine.


Hi,

it's to do with domain name servers - otherwise known as 'DNS'. Normally these are sorted out by your Internet Service Provider - ring them and tell them there's a problem. However if you're techie enough it's easy to solve without bothering them - Use a free service such as OpenDNS (www.opendns.com) - it's a matter of going to your router (or modem) 's set up page, and typing in two rows of numbers. You don't need to understand it to sort it - but you do need to follow the instructions carefully if you're not sure what you're doing.Full instructions on OpenDNS's site - Click on 'Get Started'

The problem may lie with your ISP or with your router, and the way it's handling the DNS numbers which are (usually) automatically provided by the ISP - either way they should be able to provide advice.

A domain name server by the way is a device which translates all the web addresses we use - for example www.facebook.com - into the numbers which computer networks understand, so we surf to the same place each time.


Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

Everytime I try logging into facebook it tells me that the page is temporarily unavailable and to try again later or that it might be a network problem, but all other websites are working fine. What can I...


Sometimes, facebook do maintenance for their servers and you'll experience that thing. But usually it doesn't take more than one day.

Is it a home pc where you're trying to logon into? Or is it an office computer? If it is an office computer, your network admin might blocked the website.

You can also try clearing your cache. For firefox, click tools, clear recent history and clear everything. For internet explorer, tools - internet options - delete - and delete everything. After this, try browsing facebook.

If it does not work, you can try other browser like google chrome which you can download for free at http://www.google.com/chrome

Or, you can try changing your DNS.
- Click start, right-click my network places then click properties
- Right click the local area connection you are using
- Double click internet protocol
- Change the preferred dns server to 8.8.8.8 and the alternate dns server to 8.8.4.4
- click ok, then ok
- try browsing

Good luck!

Can't log onto facebook.com keeps giving error message - link broken - DNS server cannot be found. Also auto redirects facebook.com to lite.facebook.com.


Here is my advice : Just go to www.microsoft.com and download internet explorer again and install it , then reboot your system . I'm sure that this will solve the problem . any way , why don't you try other internet communication softwares like ( firefox or google chrome) those both are great also . I advice you to have more than one internet communication software . I already have three just in case if one of them is corrupted . I have ( Internet explorer and firefox and google chrome ) . just try the idea and you'll be satisfied with the result .
good luck .

It seems your system has a problem with Java updates or some spyware infection. First way to fix this problem is by reseting the IE7, Tools-IE options- Advanced- Reset-Reset All. The other permanent solution is to download Mozilla Firefox which is a better browser than IE.
