DNS/Internet down in North Andover, Mass?

Woke up, can't connect to any website. Can ping, can trace. Rebooted router and computer. Changed to googles free DNS server, still nothing

Got to work, able to RDP into my home machine, still can't get to any websites.

 

Anyone experiencing the same problem?

 

More info: Can connect with instant messenger (digsby) , tried IE/Chrome/Firefox. No proxy settings.


Disabled/enabled my adapter

 

Two wireless laptops tested, same problem

I am in Natick, and have found my internet to be intermittent since early this week.

 

I was about to call it in.  Sometimes, powering down/up my modem works, it might be a coincidence that it comes back after that.

 

At first, I thought it was my wireless 'N' access point.  But my devices get DHCP addresses and some stuff works, but the Web stuff doesn't during the outage.

Sounds like the router but you can run a test from the router itself to see if its getting DNS.

I dont use Verizon's router anymore but I think it was under the advanced section and Testing/tools

If it can ping www.google.com than most likely you have problems with the verizon router settings.  Either the firewall is acting up or the router is having problems.

 

 

You could reset to defaults and try.
