How come I am unable to connect to a specific website via WiFi but I can connect via my cell phone?

Q: I have a wifi connection at home and there is one particular web page I cannot connect to. I know the website is up and running because I can access it with my smartphone (not connected to my home wifi). Any suggestions?

  1.  

    Try clearing your cache and temp files.

    Are you trying to connect to the site on your cell phone when connected to WiFi or on your computer?

    If it is on your computer from your browser (assuming you are using Internet Explorer)
    1. Select tools from the menu bar.
    2. Select internet options
    3. On the general tab press the delete button.
    4. Select to delete temp files and cookies.

    Try browsing to the site now and see if you are still having problems.

    Let me know if you are still having problems and I can help further.

    Thank you but deleting the temp files and cookies did not help. I am trying to access the website, http://www.harvardsportsmansclub.com, which I was able to access a couple of weeks ago on my home computer. The site is up and running because I can access it on my cell phone. I don’t seem to be having this problem with any other website on my home computer.
