Connection Time out??
« on: February 14, 2008, 09:18:43 PM »

Hello everyone,


I have been having this problem for a long time, hoping to resolve it over time, but no avail. Periodically, my browser (IE or Firefox) can connect to certain sites by the use of the DNS name. The problem appears the most with Google. When I canít access Google by typing www.google.com, I can still ping the site and can access the site via its IP address. This problem also appears to only occur on my desktop. When my desktop is having this problem, my laptop can access the site just fine. Both my laptop and desktop are behind the same router on my network.

I have tried flushing the windows xp dns cache, brought a new router, rebuilt the TCP/IP stack, ran several spy ware scanners, even modified the host file in attempt to fix the problem. I have run out of ideas of things to do.

The problem seems vague in description; I'm not sure how to search for a fix.

Any ideas??? Thanks

So DNS is resolving in a timely fashion I take it?  If not change your DNS settings on whatever connects to the Internet (probably the router) to connect to those given by OpenDNS.

Ill give the OpenDNS service a try. However, the problem appears to be isolated to only one computer behind my router. Because of that, I don't think the problem is in the router.

try just entering the ip of google. 208.69.32.230 in IE
if im not mistaken wouldnt that rule out dns problems if it works?

You are correct sir because then you take the domain resolving out of the equation.

Doing that does work. When google is not reached, i can open up the command line, and type "ping google.com" and i can get google's ip address. when i type that address into IE, i can get to google.

Also on the list of sites i cant randomly access is gideontech.


The OpenDNS service is not making things better

Well my first info to go on was assuming all computers, only one PC is a different beast.  You on wireless or wired?
