"Page Cannot Be Displayed"

Q: Why do I see "Page Cannot be Displayed" when I go the the web? Is the server down?

A: The browser message "Page Cannot Be Displayed" or "Server Not Found" indicates that your browser could not connect to the site you were trying to go to. If this message comes up when you first open the browser (Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari) it could indicate a connection issue, and mis-typed address, an outdated address or a web server that is temporarily offline or having traffic issues.

T: If you are using an eMac (white Apple computer) there is a "known issue" involving the network cards not waking up quickly. It is best to wait 30+ seconds after waking up your eMac before trying to go to a web site. If your browser opens up to your home page but then you get the "Server Not Found" message when trying to go somewhere else, try going to a known site (Google) to make sure you have a good connection to the Internet.
