    I use https://www.google.com/ as my homepage and ive been getting this:

    Code:
    [h=1]This webpage is not available[/h]The server at www.google.com can't be found, because the DNS lookup failed. DNS is the network service that translates a website's name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Google Chrome from accessing the network.
    [h=2]Here are some suggestions:[/h]
    
    • Reload this webpage later.
    • Check your Internet connection. Restart any router, modem, or other network devices you may be using.
    • Check your DNS settings. Contact your network administrator if you're not sure what this means.
    • Try disabling network prediction by following these steps: Go to the wrench menu > Options > Under the Hood and deselect "Predict network actions to improve page load performance." If this does not resolve the issue, we recommend selecting this option again for improved performance.
    • Add Google Chrome as a permitted program in your firewall's or antivirus software's settings. If it is already a permitted program, try deleting it from the list of permitted programs and adding it again.
    • If you use a proxy server, check your proxy settings or contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working. If you don't believe you should be using a proxy server, adjust your proxy settings: Go to the wrench menu >Options > Under the Hood > Change proxy settings... > LAN Settings and deselect the "Use a proxy server for your LAN" checkbox.
    Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): Unable to resolve the server's DNS address.

    I even tried a few different google services and still the same error, I was truly worried when I tried sending an email from the google client on my droid, didn't work. Anyone got anything on this?
