How come I cannot connect to

by on March 4, 2010

Q: I am having a problem connecting to a website that I had no problems with before ( My daughter’s laptop won’t connect. My son who lives 45 min away can connect. My daughter and I have no other issues with other websites. How come I cannot connect to this site?

    Try going to the site with a different browser. Also have you tried to go to the site with If your still having problems click on start > Run > type “cmd” (no quotes) and hit enter. This will open a command prompt. In the command prompt type ping and let me know if the results are “reply from” or if they are “request timed out”. If this is the case we will have to adjust your DNS settings.


    Thank you for the assistance. I replaced the few years old router with a new one and it seemed to fix the problem. I am unsure if some other DNS addresses were configured in the old router but I left it as auto discovery on the new router and sure enough I am about to access the site. Thanks again for your help.
