A Log On Problem Resolved

Arteman  and the boss have been in France for a few weeks!

A quiet time relaxing with our friends, enjoying the wine, the food and the sun in Provence

No blogs either – mainly because of a computer problem which took a week to resolve – I really must bring Sergie ( the techie in the basement ) on holiday next time!!!

Solution to the problem “ firefox is unable to locate the server at ******** “ when logging on to a strange network

It drove me mad !!!  The management of our estate in France “ improved ” the WIFI system ( which worked fine for me before ) and for days I got the message “ firefox is unable to locate the server at ******** “

I tried everything – unsuccessfully !!!

I finally stumbled on a work around

Go to “ Start “   “ Control Panel “  Administrative Tools “   “ Services “   and stop the DNS Client

Then try to log on

It works for me !!!

You may need to restart the DNS while you browse – and I have to turn it off again to log out of the rather bizarre system in France
