Why don't I get google results when typing keyword into the location bar?

Posted

When typing keywords into the location bar, instead of taking me to Google I get a "problem loading page the connection was reset" error. And the domain it automatically takes me to is domainnotfound.Internetserviceprovider.net. Is there any way that if I don't type in a full url and just press enter it will give me the google results for those keywords? thank you for the assistance

Sounds that your ISP is detecting whether a DNS look up fails in redirect you to that optimum.net url.

In such a case you need to contact your ISP and ask them for alternative DNS servers that do not redirect you or you can set other DNS servers yourself.
