Connected to the Internet but Web Pages wont load

by cmdterps44 / March 21, 2008 3:55 PM PDT

Hey I have a problem where after awhile, randomly my web pages go down. They load the "cant load page" issue. I use mozilla but same thing happens to IE at the same time. I have looked around using google and cant find anything. To solve it i would just have to restart my computer which i wanna stop doing. Its been doing this for a few months now. Heres some things i have to say:

-I am on a college campus and it does it
-When i go home on my router, does the same thing

I would really like to get this fixed, restarting my computer is annoying. Let me know and thank you.

dns issue?
by RunRagged2 / March 21, 2008 11:23 PM PDT

Hi, being connected to the internet and not being able to access web pages maybe down to a DNS issue.
Check your DNS settings.
Ping the DNS server to ensure it is on line.

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
