Hi,
This is a minecraft problem but not an obvious port forwarding one like the rest. I've had minecraft for years now but this has just started appearing. The servers that I normally would play on either show up as "Cannot resolve hostname." or they have over 1000 ping. I used to be able to connect to each one with barely any ping. The server that I run off of my computer will not show up to others even though it used to. I just had my computer cleaned of malware and viruses with the help of a geek in the forums, but this problem was occurring beforehand also. I don't know what the issue is and I was wondering if anyone can help? Thanks.

Hey,

Have you by any chance tried to re-install Minecraft. Basically goto your AppData folder and delete the .minecraft folder and then redownload the installer. If you do this make sure you write down your server info that you play on because it won't save. I am not sure if this will help any but it's worth a shot. Also make sure your Java is up to date.

The issue is the local IP. You are using localhost witch resolves as 127.0.0.1.

The possible solution for your issue is your actual local IP that connects your PC to your router. To get that check your network configuration or simply type in command prompt: IPCONFIG (it's in Start-> "CMD") then take the local up 192.168.X.X and use that.
