Eror 105 wifi


Error 105 is one of the most commonly faced errors by a lot of users everyday who are using Google chrome
Error 105 is a DNS resolution error. - Which means when you enter the URL of the website and hit enter in Google chrome, it tries to resolve the IP address of the website using a protocol called DNS (Domain Name System). If chrome is unable to reach the DNS server, the name resolution fails and you get the error 105.
Solution:
Once you have verified from your internet service provider that there is no problem on their end, follow the step by step instructions below.
We are simply going to add a manual DNS address in Windows so that chrome is able to resolve DNS queries.
1) Press [Windows Key + R] to open the "RUN Dialog"
Alternatively, you can also click on the start menu, type run in the search bar, and you will have the RUN Program.
Once you have the RUN box, type in ncpa.cpl and click OK - This would work for all Windows operating systems including Windows Xp, Vista and 7.
2) Next, Choose the correct network adapter (from the icons)
If you are connecting to the internet using an Ethernet cable, then most likely you are using a desktop computer. Right-Click "Local Area Connection" and click "Properties"
If you are connecting to the internet using a Wi-Fi Connection, then Right-Click on "Wireless Network Connection" and click properties
3) After you open the properties window, select "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" and click "Properties"
4) Usually you would be having both the options set to "Automatic"
In the section below, select the "Use the following DNS Server Addresses" and enter the following values Preferred DNS Server - 8.8.4.4
Alternate DNS Server - 8.8.8.8
and click "OK", then click "CLOSE"
You must now test your new configuration by browsing a website - you can also try and browse the website you were trying to get to when you got the error 105.

I have read all posts to try to solve myself. Cannot find server or DNS error Internet exployer. Christmas gift and more like a Christmas frustration!!! Please help! Wifi service is working.


Hi there

I can understand your concern and i'll try my level best to help you out.

When you say CANNOT FIND SERVER or DNS ERROR. Then i'd say it may be an issue with DNS.

Please try any of these steps.

Open command prompt and type the command ipconfig /flushdns.
Restart the internet explorer
Try to browse some website and please revert if you have the same issue.

Will give you more information on tomorrow..

I have tried for days to get it to connect to my wifi conection it finds it with strong signal but wont let me use the internet what am i doing wrong please help


hi

type ipconfig/all
hit enter

You need to have a different IP address than he has, so if his is 192.168.1.11, pick the last number and add 100 to it to be safe, so yours would be 192.168.1.111 (just an example)

Your netmask will be the same as his, 255.255.255.0
your gateway will be the same as his

You also need to have the DNS servers that are listed, there should be 2 of them, write both of them down.

So, on your sheet of paper, you will have a unique IP address, the same netmask and gateway, and 2 dns servers.

Go to your PC, start, control panel, network connections, right click on Wireless Network Connection, then select properties, On the general tab screen, Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and click properties,

Then enter your unique IP address, netmask, gateway, and both dns servers. Click ok, then ok again.

Then on your notebook/pc, click on start, run, type cmd, hit enter
type 'ipconfig/all'
hit enter, your info should match your neighbors except for the IP address
type 'ipconfig/flushdns'
hit enter
type 'exit'

now try to get online with internet explorer, you should be successful, if your not, post back on here with your results and I'll get back to you.

Cannot get internet access using windows explorer


One possible reason could be the workgroup or domain settings.
Try clearing that and make the laptop work as a standalone computer, so it does not look for the configured workgroup/domain when you connect to the network in the internet cafe.

Hi hemgri,

the answer to this problem is unfortunately not that easy, because multiple reasons can cause this error.

It could be a simple DNS or DHCP service error, that can hopefully be fixed by restarting the services
  1. Go to Start>Run and type "services.msc" and click ok
  2. In the list look for "DHCP Client". Right-click and choose Stop
  3. Then right-click "DHCP Client" again and choose Start.
  4. Then look for "DNS Client". Right-click and choose Stop.
  5. Once again right click "DNS Client" and choose Start.
  6. Double-click your Internet Explorer button and all should be working now.
It is also possible that your DNS server is not working properly. What ISP do you have and what are your DNS servers? Try assigning a static DNS server.

  1. Go to Control Panel>Network Connections.
  2. Right-click on Local Area Connections and go to properties
  3. Double-click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
  4. Chose "Use the Following DNS server"
  5. Type in 4.2.2.2 on the first line and 4.2.2.3 on the second line.(These are Verizon's DNS server.) Click OK.
We are just going to use theseDNS to see if there is something wrong with your ISP's DNS. Try browsing and see if it works. If it does, you can also use one of the open DNS servers instead of the one's from your ISP, i.e. OpenDNS's free DNS servers: 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220.

If this still doesn't work, then there is a possibility that your computer is infected with a virus. To do something about that would be too much for this forum, because it involves posting of 'HijackThis" logs. Have a look here, someone had the same problem. Try to find help there - the guys are really good and know what they're doing.

Please leave a comment, so I (and maybe others) can learn more about this.

Good luck!
