Remote name could not be resolved.
"Remote name could not be resolved" errors usually mean that the DNS server(s) currently in use by your router or computer have a problem. To solve this you need to configure your router and/or computer to use different DNS servers. There are many free and reliable DNS servers you can use. These are often more reliable than the default DNS servers provided by your internet service provider.
The following are simple instructions on how to configure your router and computer to start using OpenDNS instead of your current DNS servers.
