    Can't find server (6.0.2800.1106)

    For some reason, I've been having problems connecting to all kinds of web sites in the last 2 weeks. When I type the url, I get either the standard page saying that IE cannot find the server or the msn search page. This is happening almost systematically: whether it is cnn, microsoft, my own web sites, etc. If I click refresh, 3-4-5 times or retype the address or follow the link that msn finds if I do the search, I finally get to the web site. Very rarely can I not finally get it to display but it is rarely tiresome. I wonder if someone else experiences this, if this is a consequence of the install of a hotfix or something else. My setings are at "Check for newer versions of stored pages every time".
    In some cases, when I finally get the page to display, IE still displays Cannot find server as the title of the page!
    TIA

    Have you checked with your ISP if they have problems? During the power blackout in the eastern USA/Canada earlier this month, many servers were affected.

    Thanx, Hans.
    I did contact them and they said that they were getting more and more reports from their users about this and that they were investigating the problem. Good to know I am not alone with this.
    I guess I am always worried when I apply one of the MS hotfix: therefore, as soon as a problem appears, I tend to look in this direction.
    Thanks again.

    Your symptoms sound similar to, but more persistent than what I had. The info in the <!post=DNS server addresses?,287862>DNS server addresses?<!/post> thread might help (or not).
