    Hey guys,

    Recently (within the last 2 days) I've been unable to download or run game clients and have had issues accessing multiple web pages although web pages run smoothly. I've tried resetting my router, flushing my DNS and nothing seems to work. I'm using a wireless router and all computers connected have the same issue. I've tried connecting directly to the modem using an ethernet cable but the issue remains. Any ideas? I've pinged certain websites (facebook wasn't working but now is) and they seem to be receiving the ping fine without any packages being lost (i'm not sure if thats what i should be looking at).
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you

    To check if you're having DNS resolution issues, you'll need to open a command prompt window and issue the following command:

    nslookup [domain name]

    If you get any errors, then you have your answer on DNS resolution problems.
