Hey, i just changed over from xnet to the clear adsl. and since then i have only been able to visit certain limited websites. I dont know why, could it be because i just changed the user name and password on my router to the new one, but is there anything else that i would need to change, unfortuantly the site is amoung the ones i can't view so couldnt check to see if it was something set up wrong.

I dunno i would ring but my flat mate set up the account and is away for a bit? Lucky i can still get to the uni page but there are a lot of pages i cant goto.

Does anyone know what could be wrong?

Perhaps the DNS settings is wrong? If you open a command prompt, are you able to ping a server by name? Does it show the corresponding IP address?

What DNS server are you currently using?

Maybe try setting clear's DNS server from here:


And see if that helps Smile

a good troubleshooting tool in command prompt is to use nslookup this will query your dns server for the records it has on what ever website you want.

also if you use the server command u can query a specific dns server.

quite handy for troubleshooting.
