Multiple numbers.
It says this call was disconnected.
And 2 options come up.
Cancel, or retry.
Tried a different PC?

And a different computer?

For example, instead of searching for Elon Musk, search for Elon Musk -twitter.com (no space between - and twitter.com)

Or use Google Advanced Search?

My internet seems to be down for most sites (amazon, gmail, weather, etc) but up for a few (DDF, DDMS, Chase).
How is this possible?
How can I fix it?

can try clearing browser cache and see if it helps
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

It didn't.

I don't have any, unless you count my obi phone, which still works.

Just tried. That worked! Thanks!

Possibly DNS related. You may have had those sites that were working cached.

The browser said no internet and you cleared the site's cache and it was fixed??

I know you said the browser's cache, I assume you meant the site with the problem.

It's possible, it (Chrome) would usually show that it's loading an offline version. (also one wouldn't be able to login to chase offline)

I meant DNS cache. There would be no message about an offline version in that case.
