This problem has been bugging me since last time I reinstall my system (about 20 days ago).
Most of the time when I try to open a website (ANY), it doesn't load, simply and instantly "cannot display the webpage", IE8/FF4/Chrome12/Opera11/Safari5. So I believe it's not the browser.
When this happens, I have to ping the domain to get the IP, and the IP always works fine. OR, I have to keep pressing F5 to refresh, maybe 20, 30 times, it'll work. But this is really painful.
I can make sure my internet is connected 24/7 because my download accelerator can work forever (>200KB all the time).
So the only thing left is DNS I guess, domain names are just not being resolved on my computer.
I'm wondering if anyone has encountered the same problem and come up with a working soluion.
OS: Win XP SP2 x64
DNS Client Service: Disabled (for Kaspersky, but even if it's enabled the problem lies there)
Router: TL-WR840N with default settings
