I hope some of the tech experts here can help…
Saturday, I found that I can no longer access one of my favorite websites. I got the same result with both Firefox and IE. I know one of the administrators for the site, so I asked her if the site was down. She said that it was up and running fine.
I cleared my browser cache and flushed the DNS cache.
I looked up the IP of the site and tried that.
I tried accessing the site from the other 2 computers on my home network.
I bypassed the router and tried connecting directly through the DSL modem.
I tried connecting via dial-up (on my laptop, not the main desktop).
None of these things worked. I still could not access the site (or any other pages at the host site), but I could access other webpages.
I called my ISP (Earthlink). They said that the problem was not on their end. The Tech I spoke with was able to pull up the page through Earthlink’s servers just fine.
I’m completely at a loss. Any ideas?
