IP address problem

April 9, 2007 at 23:13:53
Specs: Windows Xp SP2, Pentium

I connect to internet through Datacard from my laptop. After I browse for a while I keep getting the below error:
--------------
While trying to retrieve the URL: http://www.google.co.in/

The following error was encountered:

Unable to determine IP address from host name for www.google.co.in
The dnsserver returned:

Name Server for domain 'www.google.co.in' is unavailable.
This means that:

The cache was not able to resolve the hostname presented in the URL.
Check if the address is correct.
Your cache administrator is webmaster.
--------------

I cannot browse any web sites until I disconnect and reconnect once again. Can anyone please help me resolve this problem. Thanks in advance.

Try to open Google website using 66.102.7.147 ip address.

If its DNS issue then by using the IP address it should open Google without problems.

It looks like you are accessing google from work and routers could be causing the problem.

Look like your computer won't be able to resolve domain name/URL, you need to check whether you have configured DNS servers and able to resolve domain name correctly.

What is The Usage of DNS

Using nslookup to resolve domain name

If you need free DNS, you can try OpenDSN, pretty good..

Hope helps..

Great, but I recommend to flush DNS (ipconfig /flushdns) to clean cache, then, in your Hosts file, add the IP address and URL site for your Google request.

If it doesnt help, please let us know !!!

\\good luck\\

DonĀ“t freak out until you know the facts...Relax...!
