I’ve been having this problem for about the past month or 2. It’s getting somewhat annoying since I have to have Dragon constantly open. I can confirm that this only happens to Dragon and not my other browsers (Chrome, Waterfox/Firefox, and Opera). I’ve tried pretty much everything from re-installing to re-configuring my router. I can confirm that every page that I have open in Dragon does work on my other browsers. I attached my dxdiag if it helps. The times that this happens is between the morning at 7 am to about 4 pm. I also tried the portable version of Dragon and it’s the same thing. There are no errors whatsoever.
I did a tracert and pinged Google and both came back clean.
Yep. Ran it without any extensions on and still got the same thing. Surprisingly it didn’t work at the times I said before. It worked from about 4.30 pm to about 5 pm. Now it won’t load any webpage (time now is 5.30 pm). Drivers are up to date too.
Unfortunately I can’t connect to Google when this happens which means I can’t really search for anything. I can connect to Google while on my other browsers. As far as reproducing the issue…I just close Dragon during a certain time and just open it during whatever times I can’t load anything. Attached is the network configuration.
I did a test for www.google.com and everything passed. Still can’t connect to it. I attached pictures from the net-internals.
Just to confirm, these images are when you’re unable to connect? looking at these I’m assuming this is correct, as the DNS cache entries have all expired and there doesn’t appear to be any bytes being sent. Would you mind doing one more check.
In the Events section, if you select an entry on the left you’ll get some detail displayed on the right. Can you select a couple of entries under URL Request (for a real domain) and Stream Request and post the detail from the right side window.
Also, in settings under Network, can you change the setting to Use Direct Connection and see what happens.
