Hey everyone

I just built a new computer, set up windows, etc. I have everything working out fine EXCEPT for the fact that some websites don't load. For example, ESPN doesn't load in FireFox just throwing up a "Unable to Connect". Internet Explorer gives me a similar error. Other websites give me the same error, but it's random websites.

What's strange is that the websites will work perfectly fine on other computers in my house. I'm not sure how to go about fixing this or what...

Thanks for any help!!


Joe

Try to use nslookup to resolve IP address, see whether it works well. If not, you can try to configure free DNS servers provided by OpenDNS or Google on computer and try again:

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220
8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

Hope this helps.
