It could be that your computer is not getting a valid dns from your router or dhcp/dns server. or it could be possible that you don't really have internet access for the moment.
try to power cycle first everything by turning the computer, router and modem off. then turn on your modem first , then your router, then the computer. check if you'll have the internet. if not, directly connect your computer to the modem and check if you can access the internet. if you're not online through the modem, contact your ISP to check if the line is ok. if you have internet access on the modem but not on the router. access the router's setup page and check if it's configured or not.
i'm not able to provide specific steps sicne you haven't indicated the model and the other information needed to properly isolate your concern but i hope this'll help you. if you still have problems. just ask me and kindly provide the modeL number of your modem and router and how may computers you have. then tell me your ISP.

ciao!

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.

Tip on speeding up your Internet connection.


I have high speed and my Internet was sluggish at best for months. I tried everything including the following Resetting my cable modem, replacing my cable modem with a newer model. Resetting my Wi-Fi router, replacing my Wi-Fi router. Reinstalling my operating system. Updating my network drivers. Scanning for Malwere and viruses daily. I tried different browers including Firefox, Chrome and others. I updated Internet Explorer with all the latest patches.

I have determine that the DNS server was the issue. The DNS server is a translator, it allows us to just type in the website name like www.microsoft.com instead of remembering numbers like 216.239.51.99. I fix mine by using Open DNS instead of my internet provider DNS Server.

Here is how to fix it. Go to control panel, then click on your local area connection icon. Click on properties and then double click on TCP/IP Internet Protocol. Leave the top settings alone, which will still obtain the IP address automatically. Type in the Open DNS Preferred DNS server settings of 24.25.5.60. Type in the Open DNS Alternate DNS server settings of 24.25.5.61. Reboot your PC and enjoy the speed.

Why i cant open internet explorer


When you click the Internet Explorer icon, window may flash a second and quits. Or, it may show an Error-Reporting dialog. This may be due to a malware Browser Helper Object which causes Internet Explorer process to terminate. If you see the Error-Reporting dialog, click "to see what data this report contains" and identify the Module Name causing this error. In most cases, it may be the malware DLL; in which case, reinstalling Internet Explorer may not help.

1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
2. Double-click Internet Options.
3. Click the Advanced tab.
4. Under Browsing, clear the Enable third-party browser extensions (requires restart) check box.
5. Restart Internet Explorer.

Download Ad-Aware from www.lavasoftusa.com and follow this:
1. Start Ad-Aware.
2. Click "Check for Updates", "Connect" and download the latest pattern file if available. and click Finish
3. Click "Start", "Next"
4. After the scan is finished, click "Next"
5. Select all the items (checkboxes)
Right click on any object in the "Scan result" list and choose [Select all objects]
6. Click Next and click OK to confirm removal.

I can not get facebook to load, I get something that says connection lost, but it wasnt and then it says to check these on deals, htth or something like that and I have and I still cant get it to load but...


Hi,

Try using some other web browser like Opera or Internet explorer or Google Chrome. If the facebook is working on them, then the problem would be with your Mozilla Firefox settings or some firewall issue.
In this case, try below steps
1. Type "about:config" and press Enter.
2. Search for DNS and make network.dns.disableIPv6 and network.proxy.socks_remote_dns to true.

Hope this helps

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
