Many frequent reasons:
1) wrong url: e.g "Pas" is different from "pas"
2) your isp server is not stable or not working. Even broadbandith, the server sometimes is not working without any warning. Sign: if you open more (different) sites in different browser windows but the same 404 responses. Your ISP server is bad.
3) Netscape is rejected? Maybe the site is designed only for IE; but refused connection means 404? It is likely the ISP problem, rather than browser; because it can see site; butin different shape from IE.
4) Too much browser windows opened and your computer does not have enough memory.

How do you know the site is up? Unless you can access the site at the same time from another machine the site may be down for maintenance, or some problem on their end.

Also there could be heavy traffic on your branch of the Internet. We often have a lab with twenty students access a web site at the same time. Sometimes as many as 10 can not get there. When we try to ping or tracert we get very long times or the attempt time out.

SYMPTOMS
When you use an Internet program on an Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) client computer, you may receive any of the following error messages:

The Page cannot be displayed.
or
The Mail Server can not be located.


CAUSE
Thisissue may occur for either of the following reasons:

The ICS host computer is started or restarted after the ICS client computer is running.

NOTE: The ICS host computer does not send notification to the ICS client computers when the ICS routing and DHCP services are shut down.


The client side browser is set to use a proxy server.


RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue:

After the ICS host computer is completely started, open the Internet program on the Client computer. If the error message still occurs, continue to the next step.


Click Start, click Run, type winipcfg in the Open box, and then click OK.


Click Release All.


Click Renew All, and then click OK.


If this does not resolve your issue, verifythat the client is not configured to use a proxy server:
Internet Explorer 5
Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Internet.


Click the Connections tab, click LAN Settings, and verify that the Use Proxy Server check box is unchecked.


Internet Explorer 4.0, 4.01 for Windows 95 and Windows NT
Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Internet.


Click the Connection tab, click LAN Settings, and verify that the Access the Internet using a proxy server check box is unchecked.


If the problem cannot be solved; please
1) re-install your browser; but if it does not help; then your windows is corrupt, the internet connection components are the sources of problems.
2) re-install the windows.
