can't get on SL with any viewer on my new PC

Recommended Posts

Oh Ouch! I understand. Just to be thorough, did you run all the tests to make sure that your PC wasn't directly being hijacked by any known DNS  redirector?

The reason I ask is because I read on Monday about a lot of ISPs that are effectively "Poisoning" the DSN functions of their customers as a matter of policy and this can have a detrimental effect on your ability to get proper DNS resolution for your SL software.

Of course this is where the recommendation to hard program your DNS Servers resolution of choice to external services like the Google Public DNS Servers [8.8.8.8 - 8.8.4.4] for each IP protocol.

If yours is a connection issue with the net then you can fix it with the information here: http://blog.nalates.net/2011/10/26/troubleshoot-your-sl-connection/

Canging your DNS is a good idea. Completely bypassing your ISP's DNS servers may be OK or create problems. I recommend keeping your ISP's DNS as a second or third entry in the list.
