Topic: Can ping but not access Google
I rarely deal with my home network so I forget stuff and get pretty network stupid.
I've been having trouble, the last few days, accessing Google while every other site is fine. It intermittently times out trying to access the page. However, I can ping it just fine. So this tells me it's a DNS problem with my ISP, correct?
I'm using a Linksys wrt50g wireless router connected to a dlink router which plugs into a cable modem.
I see on the 'net that some people have this problem but it's usually unrelated to my situation.
A lot of people complain about Charter but, until now, I've not had any problems with them, so I'm looking for feedback on this before I jump on their case. Their customer support people usually require a urine sample before they'll talk to you and, if I'm going to go through that hassle, I want to have more information.
btw, I can't try on the other computers, this morning, because they're password protected, I don't know the password, and those family members are at work and can't be reached. (Sheesh. Talk about trust.)
