Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
When I use my WRT54G ver. 6 sometimes it works fine. However, I do get the "server not found" quite a bit. When I'm on my desktop all I have to do is hit the retry button and it loads usually the first time. But when I'm on my laptop it's not that easy. Usually, I can't get it to load right a way. Sometimes I can't get it to load at all. I talked to my internet provider (thinking that it may be their problem) and he told me to try using the internet without the wireless by plugging the dsl modem directly into my desktop/laptop. When I did this I had no problem connecting to any site on the first try. So, I know it is a problem with my wireless router. The tech at my IPS told me that it was probably a bad wireless box. What I don't get is why sometimes I can connect to most websites and other times I can't. Even the most stubborn websites (the ones that I almost always can't connect to the first try) I can get in using the "cached" function but that only let's me see the home page. If I connect to a link that way I will just get "server not found" again.
I've uploaded the latest and greatest IE/Firefox. I've reset both my dsl and wirless boxes a number of times. I've downloaded all the windows xp/vista patches, etc. and it still happens. So, my conculsion is that it has to be a problem with my linksys box. What do I do?
Have you checked your HOSTS file? It may have been tampered with somehow. I ask this because you're having issues with both browsers. If it's not a DNS problem, it may be linked to hosts file, which determines what websites you can get to see.
