Computer shows internet connections, but DNS is not responding, won't load any pages

Computer shows internet connections, but DNS is not responding, won't load any pages

I've done all the normal fixes, removing the proxy settings completely, turning the firewall off & back on, I've run multiple virus scanners to check for any new spyware or what not. No go. On any browsers, I.E., chrome, Firefox. Any suggestions?

Am having the same problem. Did the things you did.   And I pay my Comcast bill on time...I get "The proxy server is refusng connections" on my screen. Wish we could find a solution...this is most aggravating...

can you get google web page using the IP adress numbers?

   http://74.125.20.106    instead of    http://www.google.com

Yes, I got to Google using http://74.125.20.106. Thanks

ok that verifies you do have internet access/conectivity,  so back to what's preventing DNS working.

AT&T can read my email on their end but the same Comcast email will not open on user end.
