how do i correct connectivity problems

December 9, 2016 at 08:20:11
Specs: windows 10
when using firefox Mozilla I often get the error message "my.earthlink.net taking to long to respond
when using internet explorer I often get the error message "this page cannot be displayed make sure the web address is correct" - when trying to sign on to computing.net I got the message "this page can't be displayed make sure the web address http://www.computing.net is correct".
What can be done to eliminate these errors.
Thanks.

John

Have you done a speed check on your network? This one works well:
http://www.speedtest.net/

If it is below par it would be worth taking it up with your server.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I think it would be worth checking for any obvious malware. These two freebies often unearth things that antivirus programs miss - please run in the order given:

AdwCleaner:
https://toolslib.net/downloads/view...
(blue "Download Now" button on right).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Clean" button.

MalwareBytes:
https://www.malwarebytes.org/
(use the "download" button rather than the "buy" button).
Install and Run the program but before running the Scan go to "Settings > Detection and Protection" and put a checkmark in "Scan for rootkits". Quarantine anything it finds.

Please past their logs on here if anything is found.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

As per Derek, run a few pest removers/cleaners. Also try rebooting the router - leave it off for about a minute or so and then power up.

Also you having the problems when using wifi only or is it the same if you connect via cat-5/ethernet cable?

have run malware bytes several times with box checked and it has not helped - am running it again now.

I do not have any problems with my ipad - only with computer connected to router and one computer running wireless.

Sincerely appreciate the suggestions.

unfortunately when i reset the router, the printer is showing offline.
when running troubleshooting, it shows printer turned off.
I entered wireless password for network in printer.

Nothing works to get it working wirelessly.

Someone recently on here had to reset the router twice to sort their problem - might be worth a shot.

Did ADWCleaner find anything?
