Page load error for one single site on my network?

by crazyblutes / October 9, 2009 5:05 PM PDT

So I cannot load swagbucks.com on any of my 3 computers on my network. I tried all the basic stuff...cookies, cache, firewall, security, host file...

then I finally get it to work using the proxy below.
www.filterbypasser.com

I've reset the router and modem, and cannot ping the website.

Any ideas of how to get on there without using the proxy?

Thanks.

That Tends To Happen When...

.. a member gives us such little information about their problem.. No mention of router make or model, no mention of the computer operating systems in question.. Are all the connections wired or are all wirelessly connected? The EXACT error was not listed, nor did you indicate your ISP. Have you contacted your ISP about the issue? Do you have all the same security software on ALL of the computers? Using Norton? If so, uninstall and see if it fixes the issue.

Still, since I've tried connecting to the website you've listed on three different machines, using two different broadband connections, and the site comes up easily, I would start eliminating parts of the equation.. Remove the router and connect directly to the modem.. Does it still not connect? If so, try resetting the modem again.

Are any of the computers laptops with wireless connections? If so, can you connect to the site using a different network at a friend or family member's house?

Hope this helps and let us know more.

works without router!

Sorry...

I plugged my comp directly to the router and the site works! THanks!

So that means something with the router is the problem? Could changing the MTU value help or anything else?

answering your other questions: 1 on vista, 2 on mac's, 1 wired, 2 wireless. I tried my laptop at a friends and it worked fine. AVG on one comp, some apple security on the other. I assume i dont need to contact the isp, which is comcast.

Thank you very much again.

I'd Swap In A New Router ...

Sounds like the one you have is damaged. Or, since you're using a variety of different operating systems, it's possible new router firmware is in order.

Hope this helps.
