I've been having this error, or one similar to it for a few days now. My computer is the only one on my network receiving this error, and it happens regardless of what browser I use. I've done everything recommended to me in the thread linked below but nothing has helped. Anything that I can do?

I'm totally out of my element with anything Apple. Let me ask the staff if they have any suggestions.

I'm fairly certain that the router isn't the issue but that would be most appreciated! Once again it isn't just this network, it's connecting to ANY network that gives me this error.

Hi, please try changing the DNS server address by using the Google DNS adresses from your wireless adapter from the same steps given from the previous link. Use cmd first to flush dns then go to IPv4 properties then manually change to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 for preferred and alternate respectively. Go to windows services and look for DHCP client and Computer Browser and make sure they are on Automatic as default. See of any changes. If nothing happens, go to your Apple router settings and specify the DNS address manually as shown in this link.

That didn't seem to do anything. I'm getting a DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN error now, but that's the only change.

:step1: Reset TCP/IP this time, see this microsoft link for instructions. Check again your browser after reboot. If same results...

:step2: Go to Services then right-click DNS client then click 'Restart'.
