How to flush out old DNS entries on your computer:
1. Open the start menu and click on the Run icon.
2. In the "Run" dialog box type in command then click OK.
3. This should open up a black box with a command line, if not make sure you spelled "command" correctly.
4. At the command line type in ipconfig /flushdns and press enter.
5. You should get a confirmation that says "Windows IP Configuration Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache"
6. If you don't get this confirmation double check your spelling of "ipconfig /flushdns".
Renewing your IP address in WinXP, Win2000, or WinNT
Go to START > RUN > type in CMD > hit ENTER
At the prompt, type in cd\ > hit ENTER
At the prompt, type in ipconfig /release > hit ENTER
At the prompt, type in ipconfig /renew > hit ENTER
Wait for about 10 to15 seconds, after which you can close the window. Then, open your internet browser
NB. If you still do not have internet access, try restarting your computer and opening your internet browser again.
Here's my results:
Got through the first 6 steps to "Flush", but had the following error when "Renewing" : after steps CMD & cd\ when I input ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew got the following error message:
Windows IP config. (followed by)
No operation can be preformed on Local Area Connection while it has its media disconnected.
The error message your are getting from renewing your IP address is because it is not connected. It is asking to be connected in order to find a new IP address from your ISP.
He also suggested that I post a topic in the Browser and email forum....so here I am, asking for help.....Thx
