We have and still have terrible internet connection - unable to send emails and receiving emails intermittently. Can't connect to Safari, but can to FAcebook.


What is going on?!

Try changing your DNS setting to 8.8.8.8 (Google DNS) or get a VPN. Some idiot in tech has buggered up the whole system (not that they would ever admit it).

Go into Control Panel, Network (each operating system has it's own name for that), right click on the network adapter description, go to TCP/IP and instead of using automatic DNS change the DNS to 8.8.8.8

No, you can keep it on that DNS. I've just changed all of our work systems to those settings and all ours are now working fine. Before I changed several sites wouldn't load.

If you want more info on the Google DNS (8.8.8.8) just Google "Google DNS".

Elbert, did you change all the network adapters on you computer to 8.8.8.8? It should work fine unless you have multiple adapter and changed the wrong one. If you have Windows 7 there will be network icon in the lower right. Right click on that and then select Open Network and Sharing Center and then click on Change Adapter Settings.
