In the past few days and for no apparent reason, Internet Explorer 7 (I'm using Windows XP) has become very temperamental. One minute it is working fine then the next minute it tells me that it can't display a webpage, but if I 'refresh' it sometimes opens the page, sometimes not. The only recent modification to my computer was to change my wireless router from unsecured to secured. Would re-installing IE help?

Hi jim4413,

Try the instructions in this Micro$oft Article: Error message:"Page Cannot be Displayed" when you browse the Internet.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.

Thanks, TMack
On the right tracks perhaps, but how do I find out the 'Preferred DNS Server' and 'Alternative DNS Server' addresses?

Go into the Command Prompt and type ipconfig /all then press enter.
Use the IP Address from the command prompt window for the Preferred DNS Server and leave the Alternative DNS Server address blank.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
