    Im using windows 10, when you go to save it there is a default of .txt, the dropdown right below it should be changed to all files. Also if using windows 10, right click on notepad, go to where it say more, run as administrator.

    Save the file somewhere else, rename it and move it to the etc folder overwriting the existing one.

    tried that it made the file a txt anyways and then put an additional hosts.txt under the all files version in the folder

    You are not running notepad as administrator.

    As a sidenote I did tech support for years The most rewarding experience was getting someone who barely could hit the power button on a tv to solve their issues, and not talk down, but explain to them on their level. But i guess thats why some people are more engineers and not people persons.

    Add these lines:

    184.51.150.98 rift-update.dyn.triongames.com
    184.51.126.106 glyph.dyn.triongames.com

    That solved it for me anyway.
    Thanks for this. Worked for me, and I prefer this solution to changing my DNS server, since only Rift is affected for me.

    this sucks, and I sure as heck am not going to start messing with stuff...that always leads me to dark and dangerous territories. I can wait. But at least I'm still laughing about the term 'meatbags'

    thank you for helping out others. I am too scared to do this although it seems like it worked for others lol.. I am really bad with computer stuff, so I guess I will wait until things are fixed naturally. But thanks for helping others

    At this moment, and a bit before, things returned to normal. No need of editing Host file now, you can login glyph as always. Another thing is knowing if the DNS trouble will happen again in a few hours.

    I'm having DC issues. Is it just me? I can surf other pages and watch videos on YouTube just fine. :/
