A few web sites are not resolving for me, such as www.japansugoi.com. Using Firefox, I get an error message "Server not found." I can access it through my mobile phone browser so I know the site is working.
My recollection from a similar experience long ago is that this can have something to do with DNS. I am running Windows XP, and under the TCP/IP settings it is set to "Obtain DNS server address automatically."
My question is, should I enter specific DNS server addresses and, if so, what are they?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I am not able to get to www.japansugoi.com from any connection. I can't even ping it. Are you sure this is the correct URL?
And of course now it's coming up fine. Maybe a temporary issue with the page access. If you are still unable to hit the page via your computer, try pinging it via the command prompt. If the URL resolves to an IP address, then it's *probably* not a DNS issue.
You can also try navigating directly to the IP address from your browser. (When I pinged it, it resolved to 184.108.40.206)
If you think it's a DNS issue, you might try changing your DNS servers to something different. I've heard suggested that OpenDNS is a good way to go, but haven't tried it personally. I have occasionally set 220.127.116.11 or 18.104.22.168 as my alternate DNS server when I'm having trouble. If you need assistance in how to change these settings let me know. (Tech support *should* be able to walk you through it, but I certainly can't make any promises.)
