Preferred Solution: Can't reach a specific website I'm making with Edge, ok with Chrome and Firefox

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Can't reach a specific website I'm making with Edge, ok with Chrome and Firefox

What happens when you try to open the site in Edge? Does it not load at all?

A friend with a Lenovo i7 P50 Thinkpad with Win 10 factory installed. Creators Update installed via Windows Update a few weeks ago. Called me last week reporting that he could no longer view web pages using Edge, Chrome, Firefox, or IE. I checked event viewer and saw one of his music creation programs was using a proxy server that was failing. I uninstalled the program and he was able to access web sites for a week, then yesterday the problem came back but no related errors in event viewer. Opening up a CMND window I could ping and tracert any web site without problems. His e-mail works. team viewer works. The web browsers will not connect, hang sometimes, and when closed and exited can still be seen running under task manager or process explorer. I get an error message saying the program can not be terminated when I try to kill it with process explorer or task manager. I ran a half dozen or more antivirus / malware programs which only come up with PUP's and one or two malware not related to this problem. NO proxy settings seen in the browser / internet settings. Running ipconfig /flushdns /release /renew doesn't help either. Suggestions appreciated. - Steve

Answer:Edge, Chrome, Firefox, and IE all fail to connect to any website

Just a wild guess, is that computer by chance using any kind of proxy service or HideMyID service provided by an installed AV or Internet Service package by any number of free or pay-for products?

Presently, I’m having an issue with Chrome not loading specific content on Aweber.com, and when that same content is sometimes loaded from Firefox, it crashes both itself and Chrome, and sometimes, other programs.
 
This error also will occur sometimes if I launch Steam (SteamPowered.com) while running Chrome. Chrome will crash, as well as the Steam client. (I can only assume this is because they’re sharing something, but I don’t know what.) I know that Steam uses a type of browser internal to it so you can browse the store, interact with other users, etc.
 
Here’s what occurs most often, and how I can generally duplicate it.
 
If I go into Chrome and try to compose a new email in Aweber, it just says “Loading” and does nothing. I think this uses Flash, judging from the source code on the page. Doing this same activity in Firefox will, more often than not, crash Firefox, Chrome, and sometimes “unrelated” applications such as Spotify and Notepad++, which occurred the other day. They literally start crashing one after another, in some sort of chain reaction. Apps running in the tray (Evernote, Google Drive, etc.) are unaffected.
 
Sometimes, in Firefox, the ability to compose a new email in Aweber comes up and works flawlessly. I notice I have the most success with this after rebooting, and going right into Firefox without letting the computer run for some time.

Answer:Firefox Crashing on Specific Website, Crashing Chrome and (sometimes) Other Apps

You’re experiencing Chrome crashes due to conflicts between browser installed modules. Run the browser without loading any add-ons, disable the sandbox feature, reset your DNS settings and so on. I’m sure this will fix up Chrome crashes.
 
Clear Cache Contents and Temp Files:
1. Click Wrench, select Tools | Clear browsing data.
2. A new page would open.
3. Choose “The beginning of time” from the drop down control.
4. Make sure that all checkboxes are checked-up.
5. Click “Clear browsing data” button.
 
 
Remove Corrupt User Profile Data Files:
1. Exit Google Chrome.
2. Double click My Computer desktop icon.
3. Open below directory:
C:\Users\[USER_NAME]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
4. Remove all contents from the “Default” folder.

Hey guys, how are ya?
I have searched the site and the web but I can't seem to find a solution that matches mine
I did try 'tracert' in cmd and there doesn't seem to be a problem of getting an ip address to the site I'm trying to reach to.
I also went to the site from another computer and it works...
Is there any way?
I heard something about proxies but do not know a thing about it =)

THanks in advance!

Hi,
I had a virus on my computer. I have now managed to delete all the files and now my computer is fine.
However on specific pages (generally on smaller websites), it is stuck on waiting for {website}. On YT and Twitter it is fine (and of course on here) but I find quite a lot of websites are affected.
I am running i3 Processor with Windows 10 Pro and Iris Graphics (I can specify exact numbers but I'm not sure it is too relevant).
I have tried looking at similar threads, where the problem has been the Internet Download Manager, which I don't have.
I have only tested on Edge and Chrome, but I reckon Firefox and IE would be the same.
Sorry if I have put this in the wrong forum, I am new to the forums but I will move straight away (just let me know).
Any reply is greatly appreciated
Thanks,

Hi.  Brand new computer, 4 days old.  Still loading it up with stuff from my old laptop.  Removed Norton with the removal tool and installed Eset Smart Security.  Very little else installed yet.
 
 
I need to go to the Australian retailer Coles reasonably often.  Chrome is my preferred browser.  When I try to get to the website I get:-
 
www.coles.com.au unexpectedly closed the connection.

Try:
Checking the connection
Checking the proxy and the firewall
Running Windows Network Diagnostics

 
 
Connection is fine, can get anything else I want.  Firewall is not on as I'm running Eset.  Diagnostics is as useless as ever and says it can't determine the problem as usual.
 
HOWEVER, if I use the Microsoft Edge browser, no problem - straight to Coles.
Anyone hazard a guess as to why this is the case?
thanks

Hi everyone
I have just managed to get rid of one nasty virus, and then installed the Service Pack 1 on my Windows 7 pro 32 bit system. The scans are clean and everything is running back to normal now, except this: I cannot access my online banking website. When I try to, the page does not load, and once that happens, no other page, in this or another tab, can load, and firefox will hang at exit (getting the "Firefox is already running..." message when trying to start it) and has to be killed in the task manager. While browsing in firefox then doesn't work anymore (no pages load), any other application using internet will still work (i.e. skype).
This happens only from this computer, using my laptop on the same internet connection (we have a Wi-Fi router and DSL internet in my flat) everything works fine.
This happens with Firefox AND IE, except that with IE it doesn't hang and I'm still able to load other pages.
I'm running Firefox 4.0.1 and IE 9.0.8112.16421.
The website I'm trying to access is https://banking.postbank.de/app/welcome.do
I've installed the latest Java : (Build 1.6.0_25-b06) but it didn't help solve the problem.

Any clues?

Thanks

Answer:Specific website can't be opened, then firefox hangs at exit

Hi,

What scans have you ran (i.e. What Programs?)

Have a look at your 'Host File' which can be found here:

Code:
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
When you double click hosts it will probably ask what program to open with, just choose notepad.
see if there are any entries in there for this site, if you are unsure then post the contents of your host file here.

Regards,

I'm having issues with both Firefox and MS Edge and I'm wondering if Chrome would be a better choice and if so would I be able to import my FF Favorites to Chrome? Thanks in advance for your help.

Answer:Edge, Firefox or Chrome...which is best.

I have grown to like Edge especially with some of the recent updates. Browser choice continues to be a very personal and emotive subject so I will refrain from saying one is better than another since there are circumstances when some websites will not work well in Edge but work in IE etc.

What you are doing is great - try them out and ask for help if one does not appear to do what you want - someone will step in and show you a way if it is possible.

I have a problem with pop up ads where when a pop up sometimes occurs it redirects to unwanted ads not where it supposed to pop up to. I know this came from a free download I did and even though I realized fairly quickly what it was it got on my system and infected it. It has installed something somewhere that causes redirection of pop ups.

I have done all normal advertised steps and repeated:

AdwCleaner

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free

HitmanPro

Reset browsers to default and rebooted.

I think these programs and steps have done something but something is still present as sometimes when a pop up occurs it redirects to unwanted ads. Probably making a new user would solve I think but would be good to solve it on this user. I know if the right file was deleted it would be gone but I do not know where it is and I am running out of steps to follow.

Pretty interesting stuff. I'll let the video speak for itself.
What has your experience been?

Answer:Edge performance vs Chrome and Firefox

Interesting indeed. Oftentimes when you ask a person about their primary browser, they'll say Chrome. I'll fess up and admit that I rarely use Edge and don't even have Firefox installed, so I won't be able to make a comparison between the three. I honestly think that if Google were to do the same test, they'd probably showcase Chrome as being the most efficient. Or would they be honest and give credit where it's due? Who knows sure...

Curious to hear from the hardcore Edge users here, especially if they have experience on other OS's, browsers, etc. Want to hear what the benefits are (in your opinion) of Edge over other browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc.). I'm talking ALL platforms here, basically from all browsers available, why did you choose Edge, and why are you sticking with it?

New, no good...back to HP...still has issues...call on phone, HP does remote "fixes", still lots of issues.
I often get "IE is not responding", HP said go to one of those others because "IE is no longer supported by msoft".

About 2 1/2 minutes to start, re-start takes a minute.....Longer. Then often wait while the homepage fills in. HP says that's "normal for a standard (not solid-state) hard drive". Freezes, freezes during startup. Keystrokes wont appear when typing. This is tip of iceberg, sorry to say I'm probably out $600, as the hammer is coming out soon, just too much aggravation.

Had Comcast here, both inside and outside a few times, checking/fixing/replacing.
But....as I said, is it worth a shot in the dark to try a different browser?

Answer:I think HP Laptop is a lemon, would Edge, Firefox, or Chrome help it?

It never hurts to try a different browser, but have you tried a clean install on the system? I worked for HP for a few years and still buy their laptops personally. The first thing I do is back up the SWSETUP directory and then make recovery discs. Once that's done, I wipe the drive and install a clean version of the OS.

I sometimes get this sort of error in firefox and chrome






Firefox can?t establish a connection to the server at www.goodsync.com.

The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments
...
blah blah blah blah blah



But when I open the same URL in Edge it works - and after that it works in Firefox and Chrome.

When it happens, it's invariably at the most inconvenient time - e.g. on a link someone just sent me in an IRC connection.

Why is this so, and what can I do about it? Apart from ditching Firefox as my default browser in favour of Edge.

I have had problems with Edge opening my Facebook etc very slowly. I even downloaded Firefox to see if it was faster. I prefer Chrome. It is much faster than Edge or Firefox. However, there is something weird happening. When I start my computer and tell Cortana "Facebook log in" it opens up with Chrome and some other pages but some pages open with Edge. Now I know that Outlook, my Hotmail, is a Microsoft product so I wasn't surprised that it opens with Edge but some other pages open with Edge and some with Chrome. Am I missing something. I went to Settings and looked where it says Browsers and it says that Chrome is my default. I gave Edge a 4 month chance. I had Chrome set as my default and Microsoft sent down a large update, it set Edge as my default. I got tired of the slow speed in opening my web pages, Facebook,etc. I only play one game in Facebook and Edge caused it to be so slow when playing it. I reset Chrome as my default and now the game is way faster. Getting to the web page is not the problem, using it once you log in is. Does anyone have any suggestions?

IE will show an error, "This page can't be displayed"
Edge will show an error, "Hmm, we can't reach this page"

The shortcuts fail on both FireFox 49.0.2 and Chrome 54.0.2840.99 m
MS Edge works fine!
If I drag/drop the shortcut to the browser the site opens no problem. Is this a "wait for the 3rd party browsers to catchup"?

Are you running any kind of ad-blocking software/ad-on? If so, that may be the cause.

If they aren't configured correctly, they may be reading the images as ads, and subsequently causing them not to show up correctly.

Try turning off the ad-blocking and see if the problem goes away.

Hi,

I'm using a DLink DGL4300. My problem is that when running through the router I can't reach www.microsoft.com, and I can't get Games for Windows Live to work. So far I haven't had any other sites be unavailable to me, though it's a big internet out there and I've only tried a tiny portion. I've looked through every part of the configuration and can't find what might be causing this. I upgraded the firmware to the latest release to no avail.

Going from PC straight to the modem lets me reach the site, so that leads me to believe the router is the point of failure. I've tried resetting and rebooting both the router and modem, but no go. Pinging www.microsoft.com from within the router configuration webpage also fails. I'd like to not ditch the router but this is an issue that will probably cause issues down the road.

Has anyone experienced or heard of something like this before?

Cheers,
B
 

Answer:Can't reach specific site(s) via router

Is your "modem" actually a combo modem/router? If so, you're double NATing..which can cause weird issues.

What if you manually change your PCs DNS servers..try OpenDNS as a test...change TCP settings..DNS...from obtain auto to 208.67.222.222 and see what happens..just as a test.

Dear awesome powers, facing a number of problems with laptop atm. i will began by describing the symptoms, followed by previous solutions tried. Appreciate any provision of assistance provided.

I mainly use chrome or firefox on my vista system. Over the last few week i've had to reboot my computer after every use as it slows down significantly after a few hours of usage, While surfing the internet, the search bar redirects me back to google or displays a website unavailable for a couple of instances before working fine again. Lastly, box ads pops up on the bottom right of the screen every few hrs.

For solutions garnered over the internet, i've tried the latest versions of tdsskiller.exe, Malwarebytes, AVG, Karpersky. All the above have been attempted to no avail.

Defogger have been used to disable emulation before i proceed. I have attached the ark and attach text files and the Dns file is as per below:

For the past 2 months I have been having a problem viewing a specific website (Real Clear Politics). This problem occurs with IE, Mozilla, and Google Chrome, from three different ISPs (Comcast, Wide Open West, Keyon Communications). After contacting the webmaster for the website they were baffled and recommended a workaround of eliminating the "www." at the beginning of the address. This solution has allowed me to view the website though it does cause annoyance and links directing to deeper within the site are broken when clicking on them and the "www." must be removed to access them.

Today while exasperated I came upon a possible cause and solution of flushing the dns cache

However when I tried to perform the operation ipconfig /flushdns I received the message
"The requested operation requires elevation."

Any help would be appreciated either aimed at the root cause (ideas, solutions) or at this flush dns issue.

Thanks very much

I have an issue with one specific website on my home computer. One or two pages will usually open then I get a "Website not available" msg on everything I do after that even logging out. Sometimes after multiple tries the next page will open. I did not have this problem on my computer until a month or so ago. Before that it worked fine. I do not have this problem on any other computer. I can also access the site with my Iphone without any problems. I have tried Internet Explorer, Goggle Chrome, and Fire Fox and still have the same issue. I have deleted the Cache, Cookies and turned off the antivirus software (McFee All Access). Nothing seems to help. I am convinced it must be some setting on my computer that was changed but do not know enough about computers to go beyond what I have mentioned. BTW, I searched for a similar issue but could not find one. Any help will certainty be appreciated. My computer info follows, please let me know if addition information on the issue is needed.

Because it is so clumsy at handling basic tasks, I find myself just reaching for an old ipad instead.  My i7 Helix will not playback HD itunes tv shows without lagging constantly, losing sound sync. I have never had the slightest glitch doing this on a cell phone or ipad. This is with nothing else running except itunes. 8 gigs of RAM. How absurd is this? When in tablet+ or presentation mode, follow these seven easy steps to make a basic text entry: 1.Select text field 2. Realize the onscreen keyboard is not coming up 3. Fumble with the taskbar to select the keyboard icon. Onscreen keyboard pops up. 4. Start to type, then realize nothing is happening. 5. Reselect the text field. 6. Type the few letters that should have taken 2 seconds and finally complete your text entry. 7. Consider giving your dog a $2000 black plastic chew toy with stylish red accents.  Seriously? Touch text entry has been painless and intuitive on iOS since day 1, and I am not a fan of apple. (Edit for clarity: This text entry issue is when using touch input in desktop mode, apparently it works more smoothly in Metro. Having a touch and wacom digitizer input on desktop programs was the main selling point of this machine for me so I run into this often.)  The fan flap covers the home button while in display mode.

Hello friends at TSG,

I can't reach the website: http://www.allaboutjazz.com

My browsers just time out ( IE8 & Firefox 3.6.8 ). The only way I have found to fix this problem is to use custom network settings with Selective Ack disabled. I recently did a clean install of Win XP and left the default network settings, which I thought would remedy the problem. There is no blocking in place that I'm aware of (browser, firewall, etc.) Tracert is successful. Any ideas would be appreciated.

As of last week I can't access a site anymore. The site in question is www.sythe.org. I'm in frequent contact with the admin and I'm assured that I'm on no firewall list or anything of the likes. I'm using wireless on my laptop. My desktop computer which is upstairs uses the same internet but it's connected to the modem, it can load the site as usual, yet I get this error when I try to load it from this laptop: Error 118 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT). When I ping the website I get 100% loss from the packets sent along with "general failure". I've tried different browsers, checked my firewall, turned off antivirus etc but still can't go on to the site like I used to. I called a friend up who has the same ISP as me and he can load it just fine too. I can still view the website using proxies but I could face problems if I log onto my moderator account using it. I really need some help please.

I have registered a domain name from company x like 2 years ago and have bought hosting from ipage yesterday. I have requested a transfer of registrar from x to ipage too. I am in Turkey by the way. The problem is, people in ipage customer support, a friend in Egypt can access my website, while nobody in Turkey can access it, with different ISPs

When I use openDns or google dns, I can open ipage without problem but when I use my ISP's dns, I can not open ipage too. My guess is, ipage is in my ISP's blacklist but that can be bypassed by DNS change.

What is it that causes ipage to be opened by DNS change but my own website only through a proxy ?
In what way an ISP or government block a domain other than DNS ?

The domain in question is : www.breezeofanatolia.com

Hello,

I am unable to access Sign in to your Microsoft account on my desktop computer running Windows 10 on a home Ethernet network using Edge and IE11. I am connected to the Internet through a Fritz!Box 7490 DSL connection.

I originally tried to solve this problem as a network issue - and it may still turn out to be one - but since I am able to log in to my live.com account using Google Chrome on this computer and from Linux and OS X machines on the network, I am now looking at the possibility that it is some setting shared by Edge and IE11 that is causing my problem.

A secondary effect of this problem is that I am unable to activate Office 365 products, because once I enter my account email address, the activation process wants to take me to live.com to confirm my subscription.

I have seen a number of posts on this and other sites about the "Hmm..." messages, and that's the message I am shown when I try to access login.live.com. Since, in all of the other posts, the issue was a complete inability of Edge to access the sites, this seems to me to be something different. Thus, I started a new thread rather than add to one of the others.

I will be grateful for any and all suggestions on how to fix this problem.

Cheers,
hussar

Hello all, I've recently bought an Ideapad U430 Touch, and I love it.  I have one complaint: when I use two-finger scrolling, if I move my fingers to the top or bottom edge of the touchpad, the scrolling will continue automatically (even if my fingers are not moving).  This is not what I want. I have the most recent Synaptics drivers obtained from Lenovo's website.  I have looked under Synaptics settings for a way to disable this 'feature', but have come up empty (this is different than edge motion, which I have disabled).  Google hasn't been of much help, either.   Any ideas?  Also, side question: is it possible to customize the touchpad edge-swipe gestures?  I don't understand why they can't be changed from Synaptics settings. Thanks!

Answer:Only one specific website

The only reason I am suggesting is because this happened to me. I actually had a broadband router with a SPI Firewall and other network intrusion detection settings. I had issues actually getting to TechGuy.Org. It turned out my routers Firewall thought I was getting flooded with network traffic from TechGuy so it blocked it temporarily. This was happening everyday until I read the log file in the router config. I turned off the firewall and everything was fine. I ended up buying a new router because I wasn't comfortable with turning the Firewall off.

That is probably not the problem but just my experience.

Does anyone else have access to your computer or network? They could be pulling a prank on you by blocking it with a hosts file or other DNS blocking utilities.

Hi,
First hello as I am new and also if I posted this in the wrong forum please let me know.
 
I have always used a website www.english.ctrip.com and it always worked very well.  Suddenly, this past week it does not work for me on any of my computers.
 
I am using a Vista SP2, 64 bit but also have a Windows 7 Desktop and an apple Ipad. The site does work on my iphone connected to the same wi-fi and it also works for friends at their home. I have contacted the website and they do not have a record of anyone having the same problem. I have successfully used this website for a couple of years without problems
 
When I try to use the website I get the following message:
 

 Capture.JPG   31.09KB
  9 downloads
 
I am not too computer savy but from reading and reading I thought it might be a problem with my router. I disconnected the router and modem, turned off the computers and started again with the same problem. I have a Linksys E2500 router
 
I was using IE8 and tried it on Firefox and Google Chrome with the same result, then I downloaded IE9 - no help. I tried restoring my computer to an earlier date (twice) and the restore was not successful. I deleted all cookies and browsing history and temp files.  Other than pulling out my hair (which never seems to help) I am at a loss as to what to try next, I really need to use this website.
Any suggestions or help will be greatly appreciated.
Sincerely
Pat

I was wondering if there is any way to prevent certain sites from being visited on my computer. I pretty much want to ban every site my brother goes to. I can get the computer how I want it, everything I want off, gone. He gets on, and its a wreck. I can expect my homepage to be changed to some spyware site, 2 new internet browsers, and 3-4 new icons on my desktop. He goes to some gaming sites, music, and skate sites that are all clustered with spyware. His friends come over and "fix" their problems with my computer by disabling my pop-up blocker, because they don't know what their doing.

I was just wanting a program or something that can block these sites. I know what they are because after I get off I clear my settings so I know what sites he goes to. And Ad-Aware notices 15-20 things every time I run it. Its just time consuming to run Ad-Aware, uninstall programs, change homepage, everytime I get on. I know everyone gets his stuff, but its preventable by avoiding these sites. I know one site he goes to installs Yahoo browser everytime, and Lycos sidesearch. If you know any programs, please share.

Thanks.

Answer:Ban specific website?

Try ZONEALARM from zonelab.com. The new beta version has a tab which allows you to block specific sites either by their name or by their subjects. Since you can protect access to ZONEALARM with a password, they will not be able to go and change your settings if you chose to password protect access.

Hi,
1. I cannot find a solution for a problem accessing Microsoft forums websites from Windows 10 - IE11 and Edge browsers:
in EDGE - Hmm, we can't reach this page.   IE11 this page can't be displayed.
For about a year it worked at least from Edge. Now both cannot access Microsoft forums. All the other sites are accessible.
I am using a corporate proxy. The same sites are accessible from Windows 7 with IE11.
First I blamed our IE GPO with multiple settings. So for a test I placed my machine in Blocked OU (no IE GPO, proxy is set from different GPO).
Everything what I tried didn't help. The question: why just Microsoft forums (no other sites) are not accessible.
Did couple of tests from Windows 7 IE11 machines. The same Microsoft forums are perfectly accessible (all GPOs are applied).
Suddenly, found that one corporate Web App does the same : "This  page can't be displayed". On other Windows 7 it does work.
I am out of ideas now... cannot blame anymore our GPO or proxy...
Any advice?
Thanks

Hi!

I wasn't sure if this should go in the "web & Email" or the "networking" catagory, so I'll just post it here.

Ok, here's one heck of a weird problem: I cannot in any absolute way, connect to www.lockerz.com, including tracart, ping or whatnot.

hings I tried in my quest for an answer:

1) I checked the hosts file, its' not hijacked, heck im using mcaffee, nothing can pass it - and no, its' not the reason because i could go the website untill it stopped working for no apparent reason yesterday.

2) I checked alot of forums and nothing. nobody can figure it out. I reseted the windows' xp tcp/ip, I tried different DNS' (open dns, google dns).

3) I took my friends laptop and connected it directly to my socket to check if the ISP\IP are faulty, and no, the website works just fine on his laptop - which means the problem is my pc.

4) I tried removing the network adapter, LITTERALY out of the pc, reinstall it, and no, it still hasn't worked.

5) I reinstalled internet explorer, tried firefox, opera, chrome and safari, but still, this single website, doesn't load.

6) I even added the websites' own IP to my hosts file just incase my windows can't resolve the hostname on its own, and still it doesn't work.

Any help?

Thanks alot in advance...

P.S.
I do NOT want to reinstall win xp.. i really don't wanna go through the hell of reinstalling win xp...

I've been having this issue for a week now, and I can't for my bare life figure out what's wrong. Every time try to reach this website, the same message comes up: "Sorry, Google Chrome can't connect to utdanning.ostfoldfk.no". At first I thought it was a problem with my internet connection because as soon as I connected to a different network, it worked just fine, but then I tried with a different computer (on the network I thought there was something wrong with), and it was working just fine then. Obviously I thought there was something wrong with my computer then, so I restored and reset the entire system on my computer, but the website is still not showing and I'm starting to become kinda desperate here.

Anyone got any ideas what the problem might be? I figured it might be a problem with the network and my computer as a combo, but I'm kind of an idiot with computers, so I don't really know what to do. Help?
 

Answer:Specific website won't open

If these are secure sites you're trying to make a connection with, ensure that the time is set correctly on all devices on your network (router, modem and computer).

I saw similar, older topics about this in this forum, but all of the solutions that were given there didn't help me so far. I'm having a specific issue with one site, when I try logging into it - http://myprogramminglab.com/
The homepage loads just fine, as does every other page on the site; but when I try logging in, it just times out over and over again. I've tried different browsers (firefox and IE) - same issue. I connected my phone to the wifi and tried there, and the it *did* work - so I'm assuming it's not a network/ISP/router/whatever kind of issue. It's specifically on my computer.

Help. It's a website I need for a course I'm taking, so it's pretty inconvenient haha.

Edit: The specific URL that times out one me each time is https://pearson.turingscraft.com/codelab/jsp/pearson/auth.jsp

About 2 weeks ago, I was no longer able to access anything that has to do with worldofwarcraft.com from my home network. I have been able to access it fine for years, since the thing came out.

From other computers and networks the site loads just fine.

I have tried the DNS flush and checked my hosts file. Everything is fine there, and I have looked at all of my security settings within my desktop and my router, nothing is blocking it. Nothing has worked so far.

I have also tried accessing it in IE, and it doesn't work there either.

The error message that I get is the classic:


Quote:




The connection has timed out

The server at www.worldofwarcraft.com is taking too long to respond.

* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Here's a new one on me....

I can surf the web normally, everything works fine as always. I have a DSL connection, and all my downloads, surfing and other web activity is great! BUT.....

There is one particular website that I can't get into in the past 24 hours. This morning I was able to barely get into it to see that other people are getting there, so I know the server isn't down. It's the BearShare forums at www.bearshare.net, in case you want to test it.

And it's not only their forums, but the company homepage doesn't want to load for me neither.

Sometimes I get a flat out "page cannot be displayed", sometimes the background color of the site will load and then nothing else. And sometimes part of the page will load, but then hangs forever.

I've done nothing different to make this happen, it just suddenly started last night. It's the only site that does this to me. And yes, my temp files, history, cookies and all that are cleaned out - on a regular basis. Like I said, nothing different has occurred on my end to make this happen (that I know of).

Any ideas? Is it just an ISP router problem maybe, and I have to wait 'til it's fixed?

I'm a forum moderator and VIP member there, so I need to get back in asap. TIA for any suggestions!
 

Answer:Can't access specific website

It's the traffic or some interference on the remote server not your connection or computer.

I hope using DSL you're using a software firewall plus a router, if you're networked.

So, I just created an account, excuse me if I sound stupid.

Anyway.
I have been using www.ninjavideo.net to watch TV shows for about a year now - I have the DivX player and everything - and as of recently it does not work anymore. It's not that I can't view things on the website, it's that I can't get to the website in general, and I figure it must be a problem specific to me because all other websites work and nobody else seems to be having this problem.

What happens when I try to access the website is this:
It loads for a really long time and then says "Done", but there is just a blank white page, or it re-directs me to websites that I do not wish to be directed to.

I am using Windows Vista and Firefox and I have avast! anti-virus installed. ANY help whatsoever would be incredibly beyond helpful.

Answer:Cannot access one specific website

Three things to try:

1) from a DOS window type "ping www.worldofwarcraft.com". You should get 4 ping packets that are echoed if working correctly.

2) from a DOS window type "tracert www.worldofwarcraft.com". You get an echo from each of the routers from you home to world of warcrafts server. If it stops somewhere you are being blocked. If you being blocked, complain to your ISP. Make sure the blocking is not done by your router.

3) Boot you computer in safe mode <F8> with network installed. Now try to get to www.world...com . If you do get there then you have a firewall problem. If you don't then your ISP could be blocking that site.

4) Your home network router could have that site blocked. The ping and tracert commands above will stop at your router. (one bounce) The router could be setup so as to filter out the ping icmp packets.

5) Try from a DOS window "telnet www.world...com 80". This might give you some kind of error message. Your turning "telnet" into the worlds-dumbest-web-browser. Typing garbage will give back error messages and dump you out of telnet.

6) From your browser enter "http://12.129.242.22/". This is the IP address of worldofwarcraft.com. If this works, you have an extremely stale DNS server someplace. Complain to your ISP.

Good luck.

PS. Worldofwarcraft.com is hosted on ATT.com server some place. They just bought Cingular. You could be out of luck.

Answer:Cant access a specific Website

A tracert for me gets to the same place as yours and times out the same way, but I can access the site.

Your IP is on some blacklists. Those blacklists are for email, but some sites use them to block access. So, that's one possibility. IF this is the case you will probably need to work with the site or your ISP to get the IP removed from the blacklist.

We have 3 computers on the same home network. Yesterday, I noticed that my laptop would not open a specific website that I am on almost daily. The other two computers open it just fine. I have tried....restarting my computer, unplugging router and modem and plugging back in, deleting cache, cookies and history, restoring computer to a previous date. I've disabled parental controls and my antivirus and that didn't help either. I'm just at a loss and very frustrated. What would cause a computer to all of a sudden not be able to go to a website? I should mention that I can open it with anonymouse.org (as I saw suggested while trying to find a solution online) but once it loads, I am unable to log in and the page doesn't load quite right...with ads that should appear on the side of the screen, loading over other text in the middle.

Hello,
Since last friday ( Its been now 6 days ) Paypal website has stopped opening for me .

When I type Paypal.com and press enter it shows me :

The page cannot be displayed
The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings.

etc

First of all I thought Paypal website is down so I didnt bother for a day but then I found out it was opening for my online friends living in other countries , So then I asked friends living in my city to check and it opened for them too.
Then I thought it must be a problem with my ISP only , So I called them and told them paypal.com isnt opening , they entered it on their computer and it opened for them too .

I asked a person about this problem and he told me to try to access the site using this ip of paypal : 216.113.188.64 , it shows a paypal in progress page , and will be redirected in 5 seconds , and after 5 second it redirect to paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr as soon as it redirects and paypal url come in the url bar it shows Cannot find page again.

I use Windows XP . Can any one help me solve this problem ? its been a week now and I need to use my paypal account , I tried accessing paypal.com through a proxy and it did work in Internet explorer . I installed opera and tried paypal.com in it and it didnt work , entered the proxy and it did work .

Please help me.

Thanks

I'm running a machine with Windows Professional 7 version 6.1 (build 7601:service pack1)

I first noticed this issue in Itunes. I am subscribed to about 10 podcasts, and about a month ago, two of them stopped downloading. I would get an error message "stopped (err -3259) However, the other podcasts continued to download without issue. A Google search of that message indicated some kind of nebulous networking error, with the general recommendation to turn off your antivirus software and try again. I run Microsoft security essentials, I tried turning that off, as well as the Windows Defender firewall, neither had any effect on the error.

One of the podcasts is On the Media. Next, I noticed that if I went to Onthemedia.org and tried to play the podcast directly from the website, that also did not work. We have a Netgear wireless router, and an Iphone connected to that router will play the podcast from onthemedia.org. Also a laptop running Windows XP connected wirelessly to the router will play the podcast from the website. Also, a desktop hardwired to the router running Ubuntu will play the podcast from onthemedia.org.

I tried running the computer in Windows booted in Safe mode w/networking. That did not work.

I tried using MSCONFIG to turn off all non-microsoft services except iTunesHelper and qttask, and trying to download the podcast again in Itunes. (suggestion from apple.com) That did not work.

This is not a streaming audio issue, as I can stream audio from NPR... Read more

Answer:Very specific website (s?) blocked

onthemedia.org seems to host their podcast files on the server 69.16.232.36 which is the podtrac.com domain. Since you said that you have no problem with streaming audio, but only a problem with a specific site, you may have some errors in your hosts file.

Do me a favor and go to "%SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts" but DO NOT EDIT ANYTHING. Make sure that there isn't anything telling your computer that podtrac.com is something other than 69.16.232.36.

Ok my name is andrew and i'm a computer/network technician, however i have become stumped with this issue. I frequently visit the website support.proboards.com to get codes, news and updates about and for my proboards forums. However, around Wednesday (jan/2) i was no longer able to access the website. I have not installed or removed any programs in or around this timeframe. I have admin access of this pic and I'm the only user of it, as well.


Here's what I've tried (with no avail) so far:
1. did a tracert & ping to support.proboards.com...it doesnt work but it does work to the main website proboards.com
2. called my ISP (ATT) and we ran through some steps that didnt work.
3. spoke with admins of the proboards company and they havent changed or done anything
4. checked (and reset) my modem/router
5. cleared my SSLs, cookies, hosts file, browser history, & temp. internet files

That's what Ive done (not necessarily in that order) but still I cannot access the website. So the isp says they're connection isnt the problem, the owners of the proboards site say it isnt their problem b/c the tracert/ping stops before it gets to their servers.

I also noticed while glancing through both the DSS and extra.txt that my windows and symantec firewalls were down, that was from working with the ISP tech. If you need me to run it again with them enabled, just let me know.

Ok so i followed the 5 steps before posting. Here is the DSS file

Answer:no access to one specific website

Bump. while I bump I guess I'll fill you in that it's not only my PC that is blocked from this website. EVERY computer (wired/wireless) is not able to access the site. I spoke with three tech agents on 3 occasions at my ISP (ATT) and they say it's not them. I kept in touch with the ProBoards owners and they say it's not their fault b/c the connection (hops in tracert) stop before it gets to their (DNS) or regular servers.

Any ideas?

First of all, Hello everyone.
I've been experiencing this problem ever since I bought a new laptop in march.
I just simply can't access to this website (it's a Korean website)

I thought it was a simple error on Google Chrome, so I tried to access it on IE, Firefox, etc. I always got the same results that I couldn't access it.

I'm not a computer expert, but I've tried to access the website with the ip address. I was able to go on the website, but when I wanted to proceed further into it (For example, reading an article), it would show me the same page as when I couldn't access to it.

Could anyone please help me out?
(Although none of you will able to read/understand what it says on the page, in case it might come to a use I'll leave the website)

????

*It is neither blocked on my firewall nor on my antivirus program.

Thank you

Answer:I can't access to a specific website

Hi, firstly apologies if this has already been posted somewhere (a quick search didnt bring anything up).

I was wondering if anybody new a way of blocking access to a specific website, but this doesnt seem to be any ordinary website.

The website in question is www.imperiaonline.org

I have Linksys wireless boradband router(WRT54G), using its built-in "access restrictions" i added the above site but it failed to block access. I entered a second website (www.cheese.com) to block in the same policy and this is blocked, so it is not an mistake in the configuration of the policy.

I then tried blocking access via Internet Explorers restricted access option, this also fails to block access attempts to the formentioned site.

I also tried a search in google.co.uk for the String "imperiaonline", amazingly it times out every time whereas any other search takes under a second for the results to be displayed... which seems a little dodgy to me.

If anyone has any information regarding this site or any suggestions on how i might go about blocking this website or if anyone could test blocking this site on any installed applciations you may use to prove it works, it would be most appreciated.
Its IE6 but it isnt being blocked in Firefox either.

Thanks,

Nnahrino.
 

Answer:Blocking a specific website

I think you have to block imperiaonline.org also because I went there with www.imperiaonline.org and imperiaonline.org so if you blocke the one it just used the other that you did not have blocked.

You could also block the site with your hosts file.
But your need to add both
www.imperiaonline.org
imperiaonline.org

Also www3.imperiaonline.org wanted to set a cookie so add it too.
