Browser cannot find any server anymore after 5 minutes of normal activity (" The page cannot be disp

    After some 5 minutes of normal activity my browser stops opening pages and
    returns with the error "page cannot be displayed". Other errors are "cannot
    find server" and "connection timed out".

    The PC is a client in a NAT-network (Winroute) and has functioned perfectly for
    more than a year. AFAIK I did not change any network or browser settings.

    Can anybody shed some light onto his sudden strange behaviour?

    BTW: other network activity is still functioning, Agent (usenet reader) and
    mail is functioning ok.


    Can the cause be something in DNS settings in Winroute?
    (which I did not change)

    Clear the internet cache on the machine might help.

    Already did that, on both, and to the bone (removed last files under dos).

    Also tried a second browser (Opera): same problem.



    " Connecting to remote host ... " (some than 1 minute)

    " Looking up host name ... " (some 5 secs)

    " Could not connect to remote server !! "


    Time-out behaviour ?

    IE v6.0.2800, completely updated.

    Just found out I can't reach the server anymore with pcAnywhere.

    Maybe this is also a result of what seems to happen on the network after 5
    minutes (http not possible anymore, mail and usenet still functioning).

    Have you tried powering everything off, and then rebooting the computer?


    How about a DHCP client Release and Renew?
    Checked the settings in http://192.168.0.1 ?


    Try a "Release All" and "Renew All" using:
    Windows98: Run "Winipcfg.exe".
    Windows NT, 2000, XP: Open a command prompt, type: ipconfig

    Microsoft's IPConfig Utility for Windows 2k, NT, XP "Wntipcfg.exe"
    It's exactly like the "Winipcfg.exe" in Windows98
