Error 105/net: ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED using Vista on HP Laptop


  • Sure hope you can help me. Problem is with HP Laptop dv9815nr..Using Vista

    I have a Netgear Wireless Connection. The connection is hot, active or whatever one might call it. But when I try to open a web site in Google Chrome or IE or Firefox I keep getting Error 105 /net: ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED The server could not be found. So I believe the problem is with a setting in the machine.

    I've seen any number of solutions at And I've tried a number of them. But so far I'm between a rock and a hard spot. Nothing allows me to access the Net thru the browsers when in "Wireless Mode". 

    I can connect when using the Ethernet Cable. So Any help is truly appreciated. Thanks so much.
