    Can you explain more what you mean by only having 5 percent access?

    i mean that i am only able to open up the webpages (successfully goto websites) of the following websites
    wikipedia
    facebook

    all other websites that i try to access give the error message of

    yahoo.com could not be found. diagnosing...
    DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET

    the very last boot (this is what happened):
    1) internet access icon) show NO PROBLEMS
    "hey no prob, i got this, looks like i got internet connection
    2) 5 minutes later)
    "uh, hey guys, there's no internet connection
    limited internet access icon
    unable to access to internet at all = zero percent internet connection
    unable to connect to the internet

    3) sometimes i can spend 15 minuteso_O changing the internet settings around and finally get internet. however success = 5% internet access
    this means that my entire day can only be spent on the wikipedia and facebook webpages, and zero other webpages will open, not even security software websites, churches, or even the vatican!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    sincerly,
    :confused:5% Limited Access:confused:

    If you are getting the limited internet access message then you have an internet issue. Could be router, modem or possibly an issue with the network card in your pc. Do you have any other pc or phone in the house to see if you can browse the web normally? That way you can track it down to either pc or actual internet issue.

    Your 5% pitch is both statistically invalid and technically inaccurate.

    Try swapping DNS references, or if you bought the cheapest router you could possibly find then consider upgrading.

    What does this actually entail?

    :confused:how do you do this? --
    1. you mean use a BRIDE?
    2. or look at the Network Map?

    hi beers, nice to meet you.
    glad to make your acquaintance. hows it?

    Quote by beers
    "Your 5% pitch is both statistically invalid and technically inaccurate."

    there are over 14,000 websites on the interest
    i can access 3
    so 14,000 divided 3 is approximately far less than 5%, but 5% rounded off
    i just found another website that i can open yesterday, so thats 3
    it used to be that i was only able to go to two of the 14,000 websites

    "Try swapping DNS references"

    how do you do this?
    you mean IPv4?

    router: beers, this is the best model which has been recommeneded.

    Greetings, good sir.

    What's your source on 14,000? Most references put the number at over 1 billion. Regardless, that really isn't how it works.

    This tells me absolutely nothing.

    https://www.windowscentral.com/how-change-your-pcs-dns-settings-windows-10

    The error you're getting is that DNS isn't reachable or it isn't resolving records. This could be from a variety of factors, I'd go through the following tshoot steps:

    1) Change DNS as per link above to 8.8.8.8 or 1.1.1.1 and test.
    2) Use an ethernet cable to wire into the router and see if you can replicate the behavior
    3) This quote block down hurr:

    I feel like you skipped what he suggested, the real question is if you have the same problem with other devices. If yes, it's more of a connection, router, modem, interference (if the problem only exists on wifi) or DNS server based problem. If your PC is the only one with the problem it's likely software/driver or a NIC related problem in the PC itself.

    1 billion? 14,000 websites on the internet was a SAFE and rough estimate, not to state too many. thanks for the info! thanks for helping me. the Civilization of Man.

    3 in a billion?
    this is a Miracle Worker

    this is in response to your question
    <<" if you bought the cheapest router you could possibly find then consider upgrading.">>
    the router in question is the best model which has been recommeneded.
    do you understand now? but yes, this potentially could be an issue, so thanks for making me aware of it/reminding me of this potential issue.

    when you state it like this, it makes sense: now if only you had told me this before, stated exactly how you said it. now it makes sense, thanks beer

    no -- the problem did not happen on the other devices on the network! sometimes i get the strange cold tingling feeling up my spine that i am being singled out.

    wow beers, that was smart:

    Hi Captain Kirk,

    1: Instead of keeping "hinding" and "UnHiding" your SSID, why do you not try to change your SSID to something unique.. (That no other network close to you have...)
    If there are 2 routers with the very same SSID close to each others. And you only know the password to your router, your computer will find and use the network with the strongest signal.. Sametimes yours and some times the other (thus getting: Internet access and no internet access), That is such a simple remedy to try, so please try..

    2: Next you should set up your routers WAN network accordingly to what your ISP recommends.. (You have used the 8.8.8.8 etc. and that did not help so revert back to using your ISPs DNS)

    3: Check that your router have the "DNS Forwarding" feature turned on, IF there is such a setting

    4: Check that BOTH YOUR ROUTER AND YOUR COMPUTER HAS CORRECT TIME AND DATE.. otherwise you vill not be able to use any "safe" browsing, (SSL).
    The SSL only allows a 5 minute difference… then it breaks.. Use the settings for preferred NTP-servers (that sets your clock automatically)

    5: when you are done, please change the password to your routers-admin account, do not ever use the "preset" admin-password… If so your router will soon be overtaken by bad guys using automatic searches to find routers with this vulnerability..…

    6: If nothing of this actually does work, the issure must simply be inside your computer.. a virus, a miss-configuration, a faulty driver, or similar..

    In that case please try to reinstall your computer, in a proper way so you do not end up with the same issues again..
    Please consider using the Ultimate Windows 10 Guide found on http://windowsguides.eu to reassure your self that you get a proper installation of Windows 10 that helps to avoid similar problems..
