I started having internet problems at this time. I cannot get on google chrome or Microsoft edge or any other browser to look something up, however; I can get on gaming apps such as steam and text people and download updates but cannot access the community. I can do the same on discord, but I can’t speak.

This is happening to the entire network. My phone cannot get internet, other computers, iPads. All devices have in common it says I have internet.

Have you "power cycled" the Router?

This appears to be a DHCP problem with the router not resolving the Internet address.

Some things work because they are using the IP Address (the numeric address) rather than the URL.


You might contact your ISP for help with resolving the problem. It might stem from their devices.

Good Luck
