Hey Everyone. I have a Gateway GT5228 Desktop Computer. Recently, I tried to use the internet (It uses a wired connection) using the Firefox browser and got the "Address Not Found Firefox cannot find Server" error message. I tired about 50 different websites, and got the same error everytime. I went to my IE browser, and got the same message. I then tried pinging the websites, which worked fine. it's just whenever I type an address in the address bar, I get an error message.

My wireless connection on my laptop works fine. I just cannot use the internet on my desktop. Help to fix this problem would greatly be appreciated. I have connected my internet provider and it is not there fault, it is something with the computer. Thanks

Turn off computer. Disconnect router, and modem from power source for 30 seconds.
Power them back on.
Restart computer.

If that doesn't work, bypass router, and connect computer straight to the modem.

If that doesn't work...
Go Start>Run (Start search in Vista), type in:
cmd
Click OK (in Vista, while holding CTRL, and SHIFT, press Enter).

In Command Prompt window, type in following commands, and hit Enter after each one:
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew


Restart computer.

If that doesn't work...
Go Start>Run (Start search in Vista), type in:
cmd
Click OK (in Vista, while holding CTRL, and SHIFT, press Enter).

At Command Prompt, type in:
netsh int ip reset reset.log
Hit Enter.
Type in:
netsh winsock reset catalog
Hit Enter.

Restart computer.


If that doesn't work...
Download, install, and run WinSockFix: http://www.softpedia...inSockFix.shtml (doesn't work in Vista)
Restart computer, and check again.

If that doesn't work...
Download Dial-A-Fix (DAF) (doesn't work in Vista):
http://wiki.lunarsof...2C_and_articles

Have XP CD available in case DAF needs a file. Likely not!

Check all boxes on the screen (clear any restrictions if it shows any)
Then click GO!

When the entire page is finished click the HammerHead at bottom to go to the second DAF page.

Here, one at a time, do the below:

Reinstall BITS
Reinstall Windows Firewall
Repair Permissions
Reset networking

Watch for any File not found or other errors and make note as this may lead to the fix!

Restart computer.

So, none of those options worked. I did have some errors n the BITS step of the DAF option. Four cannot copy file, one of them was file qmgrprxy.dl_.

Well, you definitely have some DNS issues, but I'm not sure, where they come from.
It may be as simple as bad network card.

Run the following command from command prompt:
ipconfig /all > ipconfig.txt

Post the content of ipconfig.txt file.
