Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. My system which im running is XP home i have recently had problems with connection issues i get disconnected and get this page .

    This web page is not available
    The server at ARRSE - The Army Rumour Service (ARRSE) 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 that 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 Spanner menu > Options > Under the Bonnet and deselect "Use DNS pre-fetching to improve page load performance".
    Try adding Google Chrome as a permitted programme in your firewall or antivirus software's settings. If it is already a permitted programme, try deleting it from the list of permitted programmes and adding it again.
    If you use a proxy server, check your proxy settings or check with your network administrator to make sure that the proxy server is working.
    If you don't believe that you should be using a proxy server, try the following steps: Go to Spanner 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.

    I have done everything as requested other than the proxy advice as i havnt a clue what a proxy is so can any one help
