Here is the deal. I need to access a local community forum. I could as of last night but today, NOTHING. I get a page saying the site cannot be found or the page from explorer telling me website not found. I have cleared the cookies, temp files and history. What in the world has caused this? Oh, I am having no trouble getting to any other site.

And, of course, it could be that the site is down. TomCoyote was "down" last night for a couple of hours during upgrade/maintenance. Another site where I volunteer was also down yesterday briefly, and then again today, some of my collegues PM'd me that they were having difficulty logging into the site. It happens, and it may have nothing to do with your connection or your machine.

I fixed it. In my Network connection properties the Use the following DNS Server addresses box was checked. I checked the Obtain automatically and it now works. Why did this get set this way?

Good Catch, Scott H :thumbup:

Why did this get set this way?


Someone may try to explain the answer to your question in technical terms....
But the real reason is that Network Interface Configurations can behave in strange and mysterious ways!


Did you recently set up or edit the Network Connection?
