no search engines with new isp
« on: July 27, 2008, 08:51:24 pm »
no google with isp
I have two dial-up isp accounts and the old one can connect and load google and various webmail...hot mail, yahoomail...the new isp can connect and load this page but will not load google or yahoo or hotmail or yahoomail...I get the error message...it does not matter which browser I use... no google

ERROR                         network problem

You tried to access the address http://www.google.ca/, which is currently unavailable. Please make sure that the Web address (URL) is correctly spelled and punctuated, then try reloading the page.
Make sure your Internet connection is active and check whether other applications that rely on the same connection are working.

any ideas?????????????????????
cheers

edit: well the old account is about to expire and the new one seems to be a windows isp...will have to cancel it and see what else exists...dang it all

Probably a dns problem, try appending opendns ips to your /etc/resolv.conf file:

Code: [Select]
nameserver 208.67.220.220
nameserver 208.67.222.222

new one seems to be a windows isp

I find that very unlikely. They may only "support" windows, but the connection protocols are common across the platforms.
