System: Windows 7 Home Premium, SP 1

Asus laptop K52F

Internet connection via Frontier DSL - typical download speed 760kbps

 

For the last 2 days, for many web sites, I keep getting "This web page is not available". Even received this for BleepingComputer this morning. Yet when I click on "Reload", the page will usually load. Any thoughts why this is happening and how to fix? I don't recall any changes I have made in the last few days.

 

Thank you.

Try emptying your chosen browser cache...and also try a different browser.

My apologies - I should have included more information: I tried IE & Firefox and had the same problem. And I did empty the cache on all 3 browsers without impacting the problem..  But I did manage to speak to Frontier residential support earlier today. Apparently they were having system wide problems with their Internet system & their internal phone systems (e.g.: Frontier Internet support phone system was not working - could not get a human on the line), and were receiving a high volume of calls about the same problem that I posted above.  I just came in from playing in the snow, tried chrome, and had no problem getting to web sites. So at this point, I will assume that the problem was with Frontier & their inability to consistently & correctly resolve host names to IP addresses.  Make sense?

 

If this problem happens again tomorrow, I'll call Frontier Internet support, and if that does not help, I will add a reply to this thread.
