because of this try to check gamespy.com...i was not able to view the page, keeps giving me DNS errors

me and my friend share internet connection over D-LINK 604 router
to check wether this is related to our ISP i gav a call and they said no problem with them, they said sumthng about certificates which i dont knw of any info..we hav another connection in same apartment from the same ISP (by the way i am studyin in ukraine), i tried with tat computer it works fine, any one important thing the other computer which i share my internet also is unable to access the page gamespy.com

Just incase you're using Kaspersky antivirus, it disables your DNS Cache and i've had a lot of issues many sites not working due to that.

i dont hav kaspersky antivirus, i hav avg free version and spybot installed and windows defender is also there..

i hav discoverd the problem and solved the problem with help of sum1..i would like to share the solution if any1 in future encounters this problem

the problem was actually not my computer or router problem
it was the ISP who provided a DNS Which does not work

i asked them to provide a new DNS and i used that on my IPV4 settings preferd DNS and it worked fine...can open gamespy.com and all the games works fine


but i really dont why my old DNS didnt work for gamespy.com!!
my possible explanation is some how gamespy.com blocks tat DNS or tat my DNS was banned


hope this helps any1 in future
cheers
thnx to members who replied to my post and MOD jbennet for helpin wiht new ways to approach
