DNS server not responding error fix

I was just about to post an article on a different topic, but then I noticed that for some reasons, some websites were not opening up. There were no error messages and the web page comes with an option to click on diagnostic tools to find the cause. I confirmed that my internet connection is working fine as I was able to go to google and look for search results. The next step was to open these website with browsers such as IE, Firefox and Chrome. The logic is to check if it as a browser related problem. Network tests and diagnostics. April 2014 Testing the IP configuration Before doing anything else, you are advised to check the computer's IP configuration.

Network tests and diagnostics

Windows systems offer a command-line tool, called ipconfig, that lets you find out your computer's IP configuration. The output of this command gives the IP configuration for each interface; a computer with two network cards and one wireless adapter has 3 interfaces each with its own configuration. To view your computer's IP configuration, simply enter the following command (Start/run): cmd /k ipconfig /all The output of such a command looks like this: The above report shows that the computer has two network interfaces, one of which is wireless. What is ping. Ping is a basic Internet program that allows a user to verify that a particular IP address exists and can accept requests.

What is ping

Ping is used diagnostically to ensure that a host computer the user is trying to reach is actually operating. Ping works by sending an Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) Echo Request to a specified interface on the network and waiting for a reply. Ping can be used for troubleshooting to test connectivity and determine response time. As a verb, ping means "to get the attention of" or "to check for the presence of" another party online. The computer acronym (for Packet Internet or Inter-Network Groper) was contrived to match the submariners' term for the sound of a returned sonar pulse.

This post aims to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about the vulnerability, and to outline simple steps that users can take to protect themselves. Secure Your Wireless Router In The Short Term By Assigning It An Aggressive Name. As more devices ship with wireless networking capabilities, it becomes increasingly important to have routers that are capable of handling connections from hardware such as tablets, laptops and mobile phones. The problem is that many routers still in use are perfectly good pieces of hardware, except for one drawback – they don’t support Wireless-N or offer advanced encryption such as WPA. With the threat of drive-by Wi-Fi theft and the risk of secure data being transferred over a non-secure connection, wireless routers without the most current security options can be temporarily shored up with just a bit of imagination. Meanwhile, there are ways in which you can get hold of modern routers for free and connect to them using low-cost USB devices.

Wireless Tips – Does Your Wireless Router Keep Disconnecting or Dropping the Connection? I’ve had a Netgear wireless router for about a year now and it’s been pretty good until a couple of weeks back all of sudden my wireless connection kept dropping or I could not connect to the router unless I restarted the router! It was a royal pain in the butt, but because I’m lazy I didn’t get around to fixing it earlier!

If you’re in the same situation, here’s what you can do to fix the problem!

Hacking. Network ,Hack,tools sites. Life Hacks: Institute of Hacking. TCP/IP Overview and History. TCP/IP Overview and History(Page 1 of 3) The best place to start looking at TCP/IP is probably the name itself. TCP/IP in fact consists of dozens of different protocols, but only a few are the “main” protocols that define the core operation of the suite. Of these key protocols, two are usually considered the most important. The Internet Protocol (IP) is the primary OSI network layer (layer three) protocol that provides addressing, datagram routing and other functions in an internetwork. The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is the primary transport layer (layer four) protocol, and is responsible for connection establishment and management and reliable data transport between software processes on devices.

Due to the importance of these two protocols, their abbreviations have come to represent the entire suite: “TCP/IP”. As I said earlier, the Internet is a primary reason why TCP/IP is what it is today. Home - Table Of Contents - Contact Us. The TCP/IP Guide.
