Dns Error With Ie Everytime
Posted 12 January 2005 - 02:10 PM
just a quickie. Every time I conduct a search with a SE and go to the pages indexed, I ALWAYS get a DNS Error and have to refresh the page, then it loads OK. If this was a one off I would not be bugged but it isn't!
Any ideas why? I use IE for testing sites etc but use Firefox mainly for all other jobs

Doesn't surprise me. IE has some weird-ass bugs in it. I'd check IE's proxy settings and how it thinks it's connected to the internet. Make sure it knows it's connected when it is. Other than that, reinstall it.

Close all IE windows, clear the T.I.F. cache, and do start-> run and type in ipconfig /flushdns <enter> (Assuming Win2k/XP )

I have my settings as 10mb for the T.I.F. and 2 days for history, I changed them recently could that be the cause?

It definitely sounds like a local problem to me, but local could mean something with your ISP's dns cache too. Not necessarily with your computer.
Personally I bypass my ISP's DNS cache by pointing directly to one of my servers. Once I'm outside of the ISP's DNS I get real time DNS data.

Unsure about the host file but I connect via static IP to the BT servers. How would I configure to connect direct to one of my servers (if I have one that is)?

It should contain only one entry:
I'd be suspicious of anything else in there unless you know it's supposed to be in there.
But honestly, given the symptoms you describe (Doesn't work first time, works second time), it sounds like one of the generic IE bugs. Had it happen to me.
Go into Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections and check the settings in there. If they're all as they should be (check with your network admin or ISP) then I'd just go for a reinstall, from Microsoft's site)

The location varies depending upon your operating system.
Windows XP - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Windows 2K - C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Windows 98/ME - C:\WINDOWS
Note that if you decide to open or edit this file you need to do it in a plain old text editor like Notepad. Do not use Word or any other software as they will add formatting characters.
The first uncommented line needs to be 127.0.0.1 and normally localhost. Though Norton's at least changes that I know.
Is this inability to surf something that just happened recently? If it is, and you have Windows XP the easiest way to correct it is probably to simply do a System Restore back to a day when you weren't having the problem. That should rule out any problems on your local computer anyway.
If you're sure you haven't made any changes to your computer lately, the place I would start is with BT. They can walk you through the steps to sort out exactly what is happening. It could be lots of different things, as mentioned before.

This problem began around 14 days ago. I am going to re-install IE first, see if that resolves and if not then go down the route of system restore. You are spot on Randy, no major changes done in months on the PC.
The second pc on the network is fine without any issues so I am thinking it is specific to this machine.
Ring BT, are you kidding?? Their CS is abysmal, hence they now host nothing of any use to us and only provide this ADSL LINE until I can find a better ISP in our area
Don't get me started on BT
