Question

I am from the US and brought my laptop along while traveling to Denmark. When trying to log in from Denmark over the wireles signal the log in immediately fails and I get this message:

"Login Failed. DNS could not resolve the host name."

I can access SecondLife.com and was able to post in this forum. Any idea why this is happening and how to fix it?

Thanks!

Update: The Wireless not the problem, but thank you for trying. I changed the DNS to Google Public DNS and I cleared the DNS cache and it is not working. Sigh...

Wireless internet is not the best solution to getting on SL becuase you loose the signal more frequently...and SL usues ALOT of bandwidth...so you will loose your signal more often....

 

In addtion, this web page doesnt take that much bandwidth cause its a web page.

 

Check your wireless's firewall as well it may be preventing u from loggin in.

 

I hope that helps!

Your viewer and SL's servers have temporarily lost the ability to talk to each other. Unless there's a problem with the servers (Always check http://status.secondlifegrid.net/ first), it's probably something on your end. So....

(1) Try shutting off your computer, unplugging the router and modem for a couple of minutes, and then plugging them back in and restarting. That simple step may clear up everything

(2) Add Google's free public DNS servers to whatever your ISP assigns you as a default. Here's how >>> http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/

LishaJoya is right, too.  Don't use wireless unless you have no other choice.  That's very likely to cause problems for you anyway.
