Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
I had this problem for days...tried everything suggested on many forums. ran virus checkers, anti malware, spybot, rebuilt my ip stack, cleared temp files, used winsockfix....the list goes on and on.
Eventually I re-intstalled my router out of desperation...all working fine now.
Leo--you are a genius. Thanks so much for the information on MTU. I've used Dr TCP and can now logon to websites (mainly financial)that I've been barred from for more than a year. A real Christmas present--cheers!!
Have vista on notebook, no work...da nada
internet/network is fine on another laptop and my desk top.
HP told me to uninstall IE8, which I did and then reinstall...which I did.
Still unable to to see web pages. Connection read fine...tried firefox too...nothing
what Gives? Any one have a solution?
I cannot access any web sites using anything to do with the Ohio National Guard. Other people can even those on the same IP. This is the only web site that will eventually download, but takes sometimes up to 10 or more minutes. I use this site a lot.
i have had this problem for around 4mths now. i can not access a couple of websites. I have run Avast, Superantispyware,spybot,Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and i have a comodo firewall. i have cleared all the cookies,history and offline files. i have used Dr Tcp to reduce my MTU by 10 at a time from 1500 to 1400. i have reset my Netgear wireless modem router to default settings. i have gotten on the Netgear forum and they have come to a assumption my ip address has been blocked. I have tried everything mentioned in the related articles and still no joy.Very frustrating. Any else i should try?
OK... I had this problem after I was infected with some malware or adware. It came up with a Fake 'Windows Secyrity Alert'. and directed my computer to a FAKE Anti-Virus website. I was able to clean it out with AVG Internet Security... Then after 3 weeks, "IT" came back and after running AVG in Safe mode 'F8' it was cleaned out again. But then, I could not access certain websites. For days I tried eveything... Including, CCleaner, to clean up the Registry. But to no avail. Then, while talking with my brother..... he told me to check 'Internet Options', 'Connections', 'Lan Settings'... It was set to 'Use a Proxy Server'... I set it back to 'Automatically Detect Settings'. PRESTO... Everything is back to Normal. Appearantly, the 'adware' set itself up as the Proxy Server....
Very Simple. Good Luck.
You rock Leo!!!!!! Thanks so much for your perfect help with my issue accessing some websites. It was a nightmare and not even my ISP could help. YOU DID! Brilliant!
I have a very simple piece of advice for anyone with this problem and it might save you hours of frustration. CONNECT YOUR ROUTER BY WIRE instead of wirelessly to see if the problem disappears. This is how I located the problem after over a month of trying every suggestion under the sun. The router was faulty and eventually Belkin to their credit replaced it free of charge with the latest model and now I can access all those sites that I previously could not!
hey just lookup www.whatsmyip.org and then lookup chenge my ip change your ip then it might work!!! soz if it dont
If all the suggested solutions fail which they did for me, unfortunately, check your IP address with http://whatismyipaddress.com/blacklist-check. It seems that if you, or more likely, your ISP has been blacklisted then no matter what you do you will never connect to those unobtainable websites. You have to complain to your ISP and they have to take action to be de-blacklisted. Here is my listing on the blacklist:
""Who is responsible for this listing?
YOU ARE NOT!. Your IP 2.***.**.*** was NOT involved in a spamrun, but has a spammy neighborhood. Other customers within this range did not care about their security and got hacked and started spamming, while your provider has possibly not even noticed that there is a serious problem.
We are sorry for you, but you have chosen an provider not acting fast enough on spammers.""
I have complained to my ISP and they say it will take 2-3 days to fix. I will be asking for compensation in the meantime. All the best, Billy
