I’ve had this problem for a few weeks now and haven’t bothered to take a look at it until now.
I can’t get to www.google.ca
I’ve been using www.google.com since then, but there are times when I need to search for Canadian sites only (like today).
I’ve tried IE and get the standard error message.
The page cannot be displayed The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings.
Tried Firefox and the page doesn’t load at all. I just stays on the current page and the bottom status bar says Done.
Running WindowsXP Pro.
Done the standard:
Clear Temp Internet files, cookies and history.
Ran spyware checkers.
Disabled firewall and did virus scan (with updated defs).
Get this. When I ping www.google.ca I get an IP address of 127.0.0.1!
Pinging www.google.ca [127.0.0.1] with 32 bytes of data: Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128 Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128 Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128 Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128 Ping statistics for 127.0.0.1: Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss), Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds: Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms
So for some reason I’m not resolving that that hostname and am now looping back to my network card…
Can someone ping www.google.ca and get me the IP address? I will try that first.
Any other suggestions are more then welcome!
