I am sorry to hear that you are having an issue with your networking.
The first thing that we should do is troubleshoot the network to make sure that we are connected. From the start menu please type "Command" and select the option for Command Prompt. Once the command prompt has loaded please type 'ping 188.8.131.52' without the quotations. Please provide the results. Thank you.
Excellent. This means that we have a solid network connection. Please type 'Network' in the start menu and select the 'Network and Sharing center' Once this has loaded, please select 'Change Adapter Settings'. Now that a new page has loaded, you will Right click on 'Lan adapter' or 'Wireless Adapter' depending upon if you are connected by network cable or wireless respectively. Select properties.
Now that the new dialog box is open, double click on the option that says IPv4. An option should now be available for setting a static dynamic DNS. Select that radio button and input for the primary DNS 184.108.40.206 and the secondary DNS 220.127.116.11. Please click ok until you are back to the Change Lan Adapter page and test your network Internet via a browser. Please advise me if your results.
Would it be possible to take a picture of the Network dialog box and upload it here? Thank you
Ideally, your dialog box should look something like the one I just attached, except with 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 instead of the 208. numbers
Thank you. On the top radio button please select an IP Address automatically option, then press OK all the way down
Sorry about the delay. My local internet provider had an outage. That should resolve the icon flickering as I believe that's detecting an internet outage. The internet should load slightly faster as it has a direct route to the DNS server rather than one that was faulty. I hope that I have resolved your issue. If so, please accept my answer and rate my service.
Thank you and I hope you have a wonderful evening.
I look forward to hearing if your issue has been resolved. If so, please accept the answer and rate me for my service. Thank you and have a wonderful day.
That may not be an issue. Some pages have an auto-refresh feature to deliver new content. You may notice it flicker because it is doing that refresh.
