Problems opening webpages

Hi having a problem with my internet browsers (ie7 and firefox). Everytime I go to a website (any) I get the standard "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" message. If I hit refresh it will usually come up. Checked my speed and its normal so now clueless. Could it be DNS related?

Very annoying. when I can get to a page its fine and loads quick and when I try and download something it comes down quick enough. Pants!

Sounds like DNS issues - you can try setting it manually in your network setup.

Try
4.2.2.1 for Primary
4.2.2.2 for Secondary

They're public servers and if these work better, it means your ISP DNS servers aren't doing their job properly.

Unfortunately it appears my netgear dg834gt router only appears to support Dynamic DNS and will not allow me to set it up manually. Looking into DDNS at the minute.

Then you're totally in the wrong place matey.

Leave the router alone :)

It's the network settings of you PC NIC (LAN or WIFI) you need to be looking at!

After being a biff, found the settings (Vista ah!), and its all sorted. Talk Talk going wrong tonight then. Why didn't I ask this question 3 hours ago instead of hitting the F5 key constantly. Have a bit of Rep and thanks Guru!

You're welcome - glad to be of service :thumbsup:

There's no harm in leaving the DNS entries in there, as no doubt they'll be more reliable than talk-talk's :)

I thought I was only one that new the DNS secret , anyway in IE go to browser setting, check and see if its set to automatic or everytime (pages stored). If you are still having problems, I found out that my 30 year old phone line was melting...no joke...I was very surprised and BT fixed it for free....
