I am not able to access some websites . A friend of mine told me to change the DNS . I checked the Network Connections in the Network and Sharing center . Both IPV4 and IPV6 are completely empty . What to do now ? The websites are accessible via proxy.
1). if you have a router - try changing DNS there (enter router address in any browser (usually 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1) then enter login name and password). I suggest you to try free google DNS: 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52
2). if you don't have a router. Go to "network and sharing". Choose your connection -> properties -> IPv4 settings -> properties. Choose "Use following DNS addresses" and enter google DNS suggested above.
3). if you have programs such as PeerBlock - disable it. These programs block HTTP traffic.
4). go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
and make sure that the website that you are trying to access isn't in "hosts" file
