Any ideas as to what's wrong?
It should respond by saying "Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache."
Now try going to [w3.org...]
If that still doesn't work then try goint to [188.8.131.52...] (which is the IP address for www.w3.org)
If that works then there is something wrong with your ISPs DNS servers. If it doesn't work then something else weird is going on.
Can you ping that address?
one question: are you behind sonme kind of firewall or proxy?
Hmmm... not sure. I'm corporate, so naturally the left hand doesn't know how many fingers are on the right. I believe we've firewalled, but don't know.
another question: have you rewrited the hosts file in your machine?
Thanx for all your help & suggestions.
I believe we've firewalled, but don't know.
Do a trace route.
Start Menu -> Run -> cmd -> tracert www.google.com
Then try doing a trace route on w3c's site. See which hop it stops on.
Certain IP addresses are reserved for internal use. I don't remember them off the top of my head but if type the following,
Start Menu -> Run -> cmd -> ipconfig
and tell us what your ip address is maybe someone will know.
If your running through a proxy let the server admins know whats going on. They should be able to fix the problem, unless their just messing with you.
