i have an intermittant problem when going to search engines such at yahoo or any site in general whereas sometimes it will affect whole pages and sometimes it will affect just a single image, or ad. there is no pattern in which it will come up "page cannot be displayed". i have tried multiple things to try resolving this issue. and have found only one solution but im hoping theres more to it than simply whe i did.
i am running windows xp media for Toshiba sattelite
-reset modem to factory defaults
-reset network router to factory defaults
-uninstalled and re-installed internet explorer 7.0
-tested on windows internet explorer 5.0, 7.0, and 8.0 beta
-set internet settings in all fields to factory defaults.
/ipconfig/dnsjunk and renewed.
all of which did not change the intermittant problem of "page cannot be displayed.
what did work is that i had bridged the connection on the 1394 i believe i had bridged it over to the wireless connection either that or the local area network connection. upon doing so, all pages began comming up fine. im just wondering what in the 1394 setup could cause such a broblem that it retains the problem even after a reformat?
