Hello maria leggett,

It is possible that
  • A service has been turned off.
  • The Network Interface is disabled or corrupted.
  • The modem / router units are disabled or corupted
  • A network cable is unplugged

Any of the above would have been "caused" by something occurring.
What was it that prompted you to want to flush your DNS
(not a wrong thing to do, its just that folks don't routinely flushDNS unless they've encountered some problem)

What else may have occurred just before this problem was noticed?
New hardware? New Software? Installed new gaming application? MS Update failure?
Have you experienced any other unusual system performance.
For instance have you been getting re-directs or browsing failures on the internet.
Any virus or spyware alerts?

What operating system is your machine running?
How are you connected to the internet?
Wired? Wireless? direct to a DSL Modem or is there a Router between your machine and the modem.

Is this a laptop or Desktop?

There are several simple things that my be done to correct your problem, but first we need the above additional information to help know what to recommend.

Best Regards
