Windows 7: "server not found"

22 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7
 
 
"server not found"

I randomly receive "server not found" while browsing on IE, Firefox, or chrome. A refresh or 5 usually does the trick. Even when that works most of the time the webpages arent fully displayed . Sometimes I'll have to reset the router and that is only a temporary fix. I've called Belkin, Geek squad ETC. exercised my options. Any suggestions?

Laptop is 2 mos old, (wifi).

my desktop(wired) doesn't seem to have these issues.

My iPhone 4 when using the wifi has the same random" server not found" issues. Hope I provided enough info. Thanks

Welcome to Seven Forums.

As the intermittent "Server not found" problem is occurring on the Laptop as well as the iPhone, this appears to be a router problem. Please try another router to check if this problem disappears.

It may help to go into your router's set up page and change the DNS servers to use something different like Google's DNS. Link below shows you those Google DNS server addresses that you can use.
