Lately I have to restart my computer every 2 days in order to get internet access. I keep my computer on all the time and it's fine until the second day. Then I try to go to a site and I get "This page not available". I the restart and it's fine for 2 more days. I got a new cable modem and did a virus check to no avail. Any suggestions.
Try clearing your temporary Internet Files in Control Panel Internet Options
Computer model & more imprtantly operating system & browser version would be helpful.
I have been having the same or very similar problem lately.
I'm on the Comcast Churchville node in Maryland. They have had no problems worth bringing up for the three years I have used their service. But they recently have had a recurring problem which I figured was causing my problems with reaching the Internet (polling of the modem continues to look normal).
I find that going to control panel - network connections and disabling and enabling my network adapter will get it started again. Takes much less time than a restart.
Are you on a totally different ISP? If you are it could be Microsoft made a change and will change it back when they get the word and have the time. I have seem several problems come and go with no apparent reason in the past.
Whoever it is lets hope there fix it soon.
