On my laptop, my internet connection fails now and again. I'll go to a web page (Let's say Google) and I'll get page not found. I'll then sit and press F5 to refresh the page until eventually after a minute or so it'll suddenly work. All will be well for a while after that until suddenly it'll happen again.
Now, there are some peculiarities to this problem...
- This only happens on one laptop. My work laptop on the same wifi network always seems to be fine, as does my XBox.
- If I'm downloading a large file, the download continues even while I'm failing to bring up web pages.
- Sometimes I can get some pages, and not others. Sometimes I can get partial pages.
My limited knowledge of such things seems to suggest some kind of DNS lookup problem, albeit one that's confined to one laptop.
Does this sound remotely possible? Is there something I may have missed here?
Oh, and I'm on Windows Vista, in case that matters.
