The server at news.google.com can't be found, because the DNS lookup failed. DNS is the web service that translates a website's name to its internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Google Chrome from accessing the network.
Here are some suggestions:
Reload this web page later.
Check your internet connection. Reboot any routers, modems, or other network devices you may be using.
Check your DNS settings. Contact your network administrator if you're not sure what this means.
Try disabling DNS prefetching by following these steps: Go to Wrench menu > Options > Under the Hood and deselect "Use DNS pre-fetching to improve page load performance."
Try adding Google Chrome as a permitted program in your firewall or antivirus software's settings. If it is already a permitted program, try deleting it from the list of permitted programs and adding it again.
If you use a proxy server, check your proxy settings or check with your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working.
If you don't believe you should be using a proxy server, try the following steps: Go to Wrench menu > Options > Under the Hood > Change proxy settings > LAN Settings and deselect "Use a proxy server for your LAN."
Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): Unable to resolve the server's DNS address.
oh such a relief to hear you're having the same issue haha..yeah my connection's been acting funny as well of late with a dns lookup error..full connectivity but dns lookup fails..hope it's a qtel issue and is resolved soon
ive heard there is a problem with a cable going from Saudi to Europe and hence the delay in traffic.
same problem here. Sometimes it is DNS errror, other times it is ok. Crazy Qtel
DNS is what translates domain names into ip addresses, so when you type in google.com or whatever it does a lookup to find its address. change your network settings to use a different DNS besides QTELS.
