    I've got Google set as my home page on all of my computers so you can imagine I visit it fairly often. I clicked on Home about 10 minutes ago and got an error message "www.google.com cannot be found. Check the name and try again". Can't ping google by name and I can't get an IP for google to see if I can ping them by IP. I can ping yahoo and cisco and surf the web just fine otherwise. Anyone else having this experience?

    googles working fine for me
    do u have an IP stored in cache you can test pings against?

    try that ip if you dont
    see if you can ping the actual ip

    also see if you can do it after an ipconfig /flushdns

    It's back. Must have been a hiccup.

    this may answer the mystery
    from the SANS ISC

    Code:
    Google.com DNS glitch
    We're getting a lot of reports regarding a glith in google's DNS information. On first looks it seems not to be hostile 
    
    
    $ dig news.google.com
    ; <<>> DiG 9.2.3 <<>> news.google.com
    ;; global options:  printcmd

    It seems the problems have been resolved in the mean time. 
    
    There was one report of a redirect during the downtime to a "sogo" search page, if you have captures of what DNS contained at those times, we'll be happy to receive them.
