    As far as i can work out, my internet works fine. connection is good, and i can access many pages. for some unknown reason i can only access about 2/3 of the pages i try though.
    sites, including major sites like bbc.co.uk, the official playstation site, game.co.uk, and ea.com to name a few simply don't work. whether i'm using firefox or IE, i get 'server not found' message. refreshing doesnt help and the only way i can access them is through sites like badmarble.com. apart from being a massive annoyance, i now need to access ea to activate a game.

    please help?

    Try refreshing your DNS resolver cache by following these steps:

    Click on Start > Run > type CMD

    In the Command Prompt, type: ipconfig /flushdns

    Reboot.
