I have seen this problem before, some of them were solved by changing DNS of their network connection. But my problem not solved by doing this.

I have tried Google DNS, but I still have the same problem. I am unable able to access from my browser. What else can I do , I don't get it.

Please can someone suggest a way that I can get complete access. Thank you.

The only thing I am getting in my browser(Firefox) is waiting for

Please be more specific about your "problem" and "not able to access". What is the exact error you get: "Connection refused", "Connection timed out", "Unable to resolve",... etc. If you have read more of the DNS issues, then you've also seen how to debug it. Start to provide more information in your question. Include the output of commands like host, host, ping, curl -I and what happens if you open it with HTTPS directly. Also: do you have a proxy server configured? Do other devices on the network suffer from the same issue? – gertvdijk Jun 23 '13 at 13:35

@maggotbrain I provided the information what have asked by one of our member. I am completely not agreed with your decision.Thank you. – Raja Jun 23 '13 at 13:45
@Jai Excellent. If someone else is helping you out, cool. Glad to hear it. – Kevin Bowen Jun 23 '13 at 13:50
Looks all okay you do not have any DNS issues. is indeed showing an invalid certificate - that's their fault. I think your issue is with Firefox. Have you tried another browser? And have you checked the connection settings? (disable proxy in Firefox). – gertvdijk Jun 23 '13 at 14:09

I had the same problem .The problems seem to vanish when i used pppoeconf to connect. install pppoeconf and connect using it.

This only applies to the question if OP also uses PPPoE to establish an internet connection. And that information is not in the question at the moment. – gertvdijk Jul 15 '13 at 4:54
DSL connection is possible here with PPPoE only and that package was pre installed. @gertvdijk +1 . – Raja Jul 15 '13 at 7:02
