We just did a DNS change for our website.

How is it that  my computer pings the url and resolves to the new IP in DNS, but my browser still hits the old IP?

Cleared the Cache and and checked the hosts file. Browser still point to wrong IP.

Ping hitting correct IP
If you just write the IP instead URL, in the browser?
If you use a different browser?

It's working now. Maybe the DNS has populated?
I have no experience that kind but i think that was the problem.
Why did you change DNS?
