This site canít be reached

I hear this is a frequent issue for people but all I can find is Windows-specific troubleshooting tips.

Basically what's happening is that every few days, seemingly randomly, my laptop stops being able to reach big sites like Google, LinkedIn, and/or Facebook (rarely more than one at a time). I get the error "This site canít be reached."
  • This happens across multiple browsers
  • The problem is only on my MacBook Pro
  • Rebooting the computer doesn't help
  • Changing networks (I've tried my phone's hotspot) doesn't help
  • And it's usually only one website at a time. I can access the rest of the web just fine.
It spontaneously resolves after a few hours.

Any thoughts on how to fix it?

Reboot your router and your modem, and while those are coming back up just for good measure reboot the computer that’s not working right.
