If you encounter DNS issues, a trick is to put nikongear.net into your HOSTS file with the IP-address 162.241.212.49 :) that will ensure the browser finds the site immediately without use of DNS.

Add the following line to the HOSTS file

162.241.212.49 nikongear.net

and remember to save the file without any extension.

On Windows systems, the file is found at <systemdrive>\windows\system32\drivers\etc; for other OS, consult manuals or search on the 'net for the information. Some systems use the name in lower case.

Is there an equivalent on non-windows devices Birna?

I'm getting the issues on my main day to day device, an Android tablet (as well as my Win 10 PC)

On most Linux systems, it is /etc/hosts. Not familiar with Apple or Android. However, do a quick 'net search and you'll find the required recipes.
