    New to this forum, so hello you Macreatures! ;)
    Alright lets get to business -
    I own am iMac and for a few months now I've been dealing with this weirrrrrrddddd issue:
    For some reason, about 90% of the pages I try to view online send me back an error message saying "not found. The requested URL was not found". I get this message on A LOT of webpages, on YouTube videos, almost 8 times out of 11 I'd get this message.
    It only happens on my iMac. Every laptop or smartphone won't have any issues so I know the problem must be with the computer.
    Any professional experienced and patient help would be sooooooo appreciated!!!!!!!

    Thanks you guys.

    Check your ip settings to ensure they're not conflicting with other devices

    Look like you have a DNS issue. ( Let me guess you have Att as your internet provider) Do this

    Go to settings
    choose what you use rather wifi or wired

    this should help!
