Why will some web sites load but others won't?

February 3, 2018 at 07:18:09
Specs: Windows 10
I put a usb wireless adapter onto a computer that has no wifi hardware. It found and connected to my network easily. Now, only some web sites load (Google, Yahoo) but most won't load at all.
The only error message after a scan was one related to the DNS settings. The TCP/IP 4 setting is set to "obtain address automatically". So far, no changes have worked.

Any one know the solution to this?

Other info: all other computers in the house work and are browsing just fine.

Adapter Model - FayTun 1200Mbps Wireless USB Adapter - 2.4/5.8 - USB2.0 Hi-speed. IEEE 802.11b/g/n/ac

Not a common brand name but as long as it's based on a decent wireless chipset, it should be OK. Very little info available other than reviews on Amazon. Have you tried the adapter on any of your other computers? If they work OK with it, it will rule the adapter as the problem. You can try flushing the DNS cache & see if that helps.

Try the simplest first, restart the Wifi router and while it is starting restart the computer as well. Once they are both running for about a minute, see if it works better. This is often the only solution needed to fix this many times so try simplest first.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
