So this has been happening for months where web pages wont load in chrome or firefox, not sure about IE. I have to clear my dns cache resolver by typing ipconfig /flushdns
It happens so frequently that I have created a batch script on my desktop to perform this task.
I had a wifi connection for this computer and recently changed to a hard wired connection. The issue happened on both adapters.
I just noticed this morning that in Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center
Under my active networks it shows the name of my home network as "Texas turbo" which is a name I gave to my router about 2 years ago. I changed it to "the Cabin" maybe 6 months ago.
Why is win 7 sharing center displaying the old name, and why am I having to regularly clear my DNS? I don't seem to have issues with my mac book, ipad or iphone. My mac book has bootcamp with win 7 and it doesn't seem to have any issues.
