So last week I tried to log onto steam to play some games with friends and it wasn't letting me connect. so I tried to look up reason why this would happen and when ever I attempted to go onto a website I'd get the message of "www.website.com's server IP address could not be found"
I can google thing and watch YouTube videos perfectly fine and it's doing this across browser. If anyone has any solutions I'm all ears

As with any networking issues, there are 2 places to look at first: the networking equipment (router) and the device having the issue (computer, smartphone, tablet etc.). As a first step, restart your networking equipment and device and see if that fixes the problem. As with the router, network and software problems often get fixed automatically with a simple restart. If it doesn't help you, check with the following:

Check Modem Lights
Flush your DNS
Change your DNS server address
IP address conflict
Outdated network driver
Check your ISP's status
