For the last week I haven't been able to access certain (well-established and quite respectable sites), including, for example, democracynow.
I've checked on other computers and there are no technical problem with these sites themselves.
I've tried various routes and links and both Mozilla and Internet Explorer, with and without firewall and anti-virus, but it's always the same.
I'm in France, using Vista on a 6-month old computer; my server is Wanadoo (France Telecom) and I've checked with their tech teams and they can find no reason their end for the problem.
Here's what happens, time and time again:
I wait for ages as the page tries to download and then I finally get this message -
- ? The connection was reset
The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading. ?
* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
- [no, not the case ? I?ve been checking on other computers and accessed normally] -
* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
- [again, this isn?t the problem, I?ve checked with my server?s tech support team to verify this] -
* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web. "
- [no ? I?ve tried with my firewall & anti-virus protection disabled and it makes no difference]
Please, does anyone have a clue what might be going on here?
Many thanks for any tips...
One of the best French door fridges we've tested
A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
