this is weird, don't know where else to ask..

I'm connected to internet via Comcast cable modem, very fast connection,
usu. have no problems, but all of a sudden there are a number of sites I
can't get to (while others no problem.. very weird..) this is happening
on both IE and N, I cleared cache on both of them, N even crashed
before, when I got alert saying it can't find a site.. these are some
of the sites I can't get to, browser just "hangs" for a long time, then
I get a 404..

if I go to google and search for "javascript" or "java classes" about
half the entries that show up I can't get to.. this is very odd and has
never happened to me before.. would appreciate any suggestions.. thank
you.. Frances

ok, I restarted machine and problem gone, HOWEVER: this had been
happening since last night, and even after turning machine off last
night and turning it on again this morning problem persisted until right
now.. was wondering if anybody can shed some light on what this could
have been, as it was very odd, I mean to be able to get to some sites
and not others is totally bizarre.. thank you.. Frances

This is generally a DNS failure. Verify that your primary and secondary
DNS servers are valid and your default gateway is valid. You could get to
some sites because the name entries were in the DNS cache.
You can get more information using ping, traceroute, host or nslookup.

thank you.. I also thought it might have something to do w/this;
however, I looked it up at my provider's site (comcast.com) and it says
the following:

Click the Start button in the lower left corner of your screen
Select Settings and click Network And Dial-Up Connections
Right-click Local Area Network
Click Properties
Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties
Select the option next to Obtain an IP address automatically
Select the option next to Obtain DNS server address automatically
Click OK
Click OK again

which is exactly how I have it set... thank you again for your
response.. Frances

But that doesn't rule out that your ISP had a DNS issue. The ping,
tracert and nslookup (I don't think "host" is available on a Windows
platform) answer that Jimm gave can shed a light on that.

But this has hardly anything to do with www authoring, maybe you can try
news://microsoft.public.win2000.dns/ (couldn't find a XP group) or do
some Googling on how to trace DNS problems.
