I cannot log-in to the SL viewer due to this error...

Unable to connect to Second Life.
DNS could not resolve the host name.
Please verify that you can connect to www.secondlife.com
web site. If you can, but continue to receive this error,
please go to the support section and and report this problem.

I've been looking for solutions for a few days now and none of them have resolved the error, including flushing the DNS cache, using OpenDNS or Google Public DNS, clearing SecondLife's cache, trying other viewers, other versions, and restarting the computer. I can log-in to the Second Life website, but not into the viewer.

This is the info copied from "About Second Life".
If anyone can tell me if there's something amiss with the viewer version, or possibly my (old) computer...I'd appreciate it!
I can also get the error report files if you tell me where they are usually located and what the file names are.

I hope you can get more than 512 mb of Ram in that computer.

I'm keeping an eye on all this mysterious DNS stuff that's been happening with SL for a few months. Using Opendns settings fixed it for me, but I didn't need that in any other viewer besides Viewer 2. I'm expecting the next Firestorm will be the same way.

I don't know of a fix besides adding dns settings such as Google Dns and Opendns, but I'm going to subscribe to see if someone does have a fix for what is happening with your system.
