This can be caused by errors in typing the URL. Also, the network that you belonged to when you got that message may be using a proxy. This is common in schools and universities.

A proxy setting is a set up that gets the webpages that you request instead of you directly receiving it. This is usually found on schools and universities as a security measure.

You'll need to ask the person who set up your network to find the correct proxy settings. Are you experiencing this problem at school or work? Or is it at home?

Ahhh. So you have a Moto Q and the program called National Access is installed so that your MotoQ can connect to the Internet, correct?

Can you try to disable the PPP adapter and enable your Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection (if wired)/Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection (if wireless).

You can do this by going to Network Connections:

It looks like this:

Right click on the adapters and make sure they are enabled (not grayed out).
