Slow or insensitive Internet browsing can be a combination of software and hardware issues. A 404 error means that the page you tried to access the Internet does not exist. This usually means that you did not enter the correct address in the browser or that the link you used to access the page was incorrect, but sometimes it may be something else. If you have already verified that your WiFi or LAN network connection is active and strong, the offset may result from conflicts in the IP address registration. This can be corrected by restarting your modem or router. If the problem persists, it may be the browser you are using. Over time, browser performance may get bogged down with a large history and cache. Failed browser extensions may also slow down performance. Try clearing your Internet search history and periodically caching your browser to make your browser work effectively.
