suddenly I can't get any websites... all I get when I log in is "page not found" the connection is fine and the browser comes up (slowly) but then nothing but "page not found" no matter what site I put in. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling internet explorer and netscape and even mozilla firefox and they all do the same thing so it's not the browser but something else. I have cleaned out cookies, temp internet files, history, etc. I have scanned with norton antivirus, spybot and ad-aware. everything works except that I can't get any websites and my outlook express won't work now either. HELP!!!

After reformatting a few times it becomes easy.

Maybe your network card is messed up?

How are you connected and connecting to the internet?

Do you have a firewall running?

If port 80 was being blocked I think you would have gotten a different error though.

If you block port 80 inbound wouldnt make a difference... http uses high port numbers on the way back in, port 80 is only used to establish the http session with server...

Is your DNS server working? Or your DNS settings for IP setup correctly?

edit:


try this,
open cmd and type nslookup,
at the > type physicsforums.com
if it resolves you are ok...
(if you get an error aty this point means your dns server is problematic)
to see if IP is functioning correctly try using the IP address to get to the forums...

I have dial up and it sux
the computer in question has win ME
the working offline thing is unchecked

I typed 'ipconfig /all' in and something flashed on the screen too fast to read it

I have sygate personal firewall.. have had it for some time with no prob. I even tried disabling it but no go.

I typed in nslookup and got a message saying it could not be found. where is the > ?
I typed in 'nslookup>physicsforums' but that didn't work either

how do you use the ip address to get to the forum???

still no solution to this prob

You have to run ipconfig in the command prompt. START->RUN and type "command". Then type "ipconfig" in the window that pops up.
