I'm having a problem....


Question

  • 0

There are several possibilities, mostly related to a weak or intermittent Internet connection.  The easiest thing to try first is simply to reboot your router,  Unplug it from the power for a few minutes to give it a chance to clear its RAM and get a new grasp on an IP address.  With luck, that should be enough. 

If not, you could have a DNS problem.  That, too, is easy to address. Try flushing your DNS cache; how to do that is explained here for Windows, Linux, and older Mac operating systems. For newer Mac operating systems (Lion and Mountain Lion), see here

if this doesn't help, then try setting your DNS to Google: Google Public DNS

If using Google as a DNS not work for you then see here for alternate servers, or grab DNS Bench to help you locate one.  That may be true especially if you are outside of North America.

There are other possibilities too, but try those first.  If neither one works, come back here and click on the Options link in the upper right corner of your question and select EDIT to add more information, or click on the Permalink under any respondent's post. Please do not start a new thread. Doing that makes it hard for us to see what other people have already suggested, and it pushes other residents' questions off the page.
