    IE6 Browsing probelm with DNS


    by meraj ·

    We have satellite internet access. whenever IE6 displays the message “The page cannot be displayed” or “Cannot find server or DNS error” I simply move down the preferred DNS to Alternate DNS and Alternate becomes Preferred in the TCP/IP properties of win2000 pro. Is there any way that IE switch by itself instead manually Swithching the DNS. Could anybody help me to overcome with this problem.

      Your provider should be providing the dns server info if necessary and w2k should automatically use the alternate it the primary is ineffectual.

      On my system I do not name any dns info. I have the “Obtain dns server address automatically” checked and have no problems. If your provider allows this, try that.

      If you are using a router try changing the primary dns server ip address to the router’s address. I have done this in a number of sites to resolve dns errors.

      Otherwise you might want to use different dns servers (it sounds like you are having problems reaching yours). There are a number of public dns servers you can use (I have done this in the past also just to see how good they were and never had any problems). Here’s a link to a site with public dns servers:

      but if you do a search there are many more.

      Set a forwader on your DNS to the satellite. Then when your internal DNS cannot route the request, it will be forwarded to the satellite.
