Can't reach a known good web site when using router.

Q: Can't reach a known good web site when using router.

I am using a NetGear RP614 v1 router to share a cable network connection to the Internet. We need to connect to the web site of out local school system, (ip = 168.31.104.246). We cannot see any pages from this domain if the router is connected, however everything is OK if we connect any of our computers to the cable modem. The router is not set up to block any sites. I have reduced the maximum packet size from 1500 to 1400 to 1300 bytes, but no change in connectivity has happened. Any ideas wher to look?
The DNS servers listed by the router are correct, and I still cannot connect if I enter the IP address rather than the URL.

There are computers on the lan running Win 95, Win98, WinXP and all see the same thing. We are using a Motorola SurfBoard SB5100.

Preferred Solution: Can't reach a known good web site when using router.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Can't reach a known good web site when using router.

You can not access your own IP, if that is the IP-number in your router.
Just use http://www.forsyth.k12.ga.us/ and all should be fine.

For some reason, I am unable to reach Ann Coulter - Official Home Page on my computer. It's been several weeks since I was last able to visit the site. The problem happens in every browser I have, including recent or current versions of Firefox, IE, Opera and Chrome. I can reach any other website I try to get to just fine. I never used to have any trouble reaching that website until about a month ago. No one else uses this computer and I live alone.

It appears that I've blocked that one site but I'm darned if I can figure out how.

Here's what I've tried so far:
1. Run Avast Free Antivirus with the latest version of the program and definitions. Results: no threats found with either the quick scan or the full scan.
2 Run Malware Bytes with the latest definitions. Results: Results: two threats found and removed but I still can't reach the Coulter website.
3. Checked my Hosts file. Results: nothing there is blocking any website.
4. Checked my router settings. Can't see any blocks there.
5. Had other people try to access the site; they were successful.
6. Googled and found one other forum where someone was having the same problem with respect to the Coulter website. But his problem apparently went away two weeks ago. He didn't indicate if he had done anything to make it go away.
7. Checked the Windows Event logs but can't see anything there reflecting my problem.

Can anyone suggest anything else I can check?

This is bizarre.

I'm trying to persuade my browser to connect with www.piratour.net. It times out and fails to find it.

I try on my phone using the home wi-fi - same result.

I switch off my phone wi-fi and try with data. Success!

This happens on the PC with both Firefox and Edge.

I open a command window and try ping www.piratour.net. Nothing, however the screen tells me immediately that the ip address is 167.250.5.29 .

I have spent quality time with my ISP (Plusnet in the UK). The man tried that address from his own machine - no success.

I have tried changing the DNS servers (my idea). No luck.

The fact that the service guy also couldn't reach it suggests that the problem is somewhere way outside my setup.

I would appreciate any thoughts.

I'm trying to reach a friend's FTP site and can't get any connection/response.

Direct FTP attempt: The operation "times out".
Pinging his IP address from CMD prompt: All attempts time out.
Tracert to his IP: It begins the trace process, but loses the route after about 4 hops.

I have placed his IP address in the excluded (allowed) sites in my firewall settings. I can't figure out what else may be preventing my connection. Any help?

To use some features on the Nascar.com web site, you need to log in through https://secure.audience.nascar.com. Problem is, the site can't be reached or pinged. Increasing ping time generates nothing but timeout errors. Something in the computer is blocking it from reaching that web address, whether it's entered as a name or a numeric address. This problem happens with four different web browsers - IE8, Firefox 3, Chrome and Safari.

It's a Gateway laptop with Vista SP1. It happens with a LAN connection. WiFi and Ev-Do. The web address is available on one machine with an identical WiFi link but not with the Gateway laptop.

Here are some of the attempts to solve the problem that have failed:

Resetting TCP/IP stack.
Switching DNS server.
Removing Norton Internet Security 2008.
Shutting down Windows Defender.
Running the computer with no firewall.
Removing and reinstalling network adapters and reinstalling drivers.
Running Vista in safe mode with networking.
Removing all temporary files and history.
Adding the domain to the IE trusted sites list.

The secure.audience.nascar.com address and the nascar.com domain are not blocked in the Hosts list.

NASCAR tech support has no idea what's going on.
Several checks of other web sites and Microsoft's online support on problems with accessing https secure sites have turned up no problems with accessing that site.

Hi guys!!  Boy, I hope you can help me because I am about to pull my hair out over this one.
 
I think I got infected with some virus called HEU_AEGIS_HttpDownloader blah blah a month back.  I think this because it came up in my AV (Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security).  The AV did its thing and I guess cleaned the virus or removed it.  It no longer shows up.  During this time, I also received about a dozen of other warnings about a suspicious file which Trend deleted whenever it showed up.  It was always found at: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temp\***.tmp.exe (the *** would always be some random letters and numbers).  This virus and ***.tmp.exe file no longer shows up.  However...
 
Since that virus popped up (and these two things may not be related) I keep getting a web threat listed in Trend Micro which shows a web threat which happens about twice every hour.  It says it 'blocked' a web threat to website address 176.9.##.###/ip.php
 
I have checked my services, msconfig start up settings, registry, and even a complete search on my hard drive for that IP (which I partially masked on purpose).  Nothing can find it.
 
I tried running full scans of Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security, Ad Aware, MalwareBytes, and Super AntiMalware.  All of them say my machine is clean.
 
I even tried using my earliest system restore point, and that did not rid me of these constant web threats.

A:HEU_AEGIS, computer keeps trying to reach a suspicious site

I believe I found the cause of this issue.  A rootkit was hiding itself pretty well.  Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, Trend Micro Titanium, and Ad Aware could not find it.  I finally tried Kaspersky's TDSSKiller and it found and deleted an .exe file and registry entry it said was a high risk.  Since it removed the file, I have had no web threats in the past 24 hours.
 
Here is the text of the infected file TDSSKiller reported and removed:
 
UDS:DangerousObject.Multi.Generic
File: C:\Document and Settings\Owner\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\SystemCache\6.0\25\winhlp32.exe
Malware object, high risk
 
If anyone else is experiencing a constant barage of web threats being blocked and can't find the cause; be sure to try TDSSKiller.

Goal: extend the reach of my WiFi to multiple floors with keeping in the basement the DSL modem - Actiontech M1000 and Actiontech W1000. I have a Linksys Access Point and Linksys Router. I was told by CenturyLink (only allowed support for Actiontech) that the modem would need to be put in bridge mod that would disable the Actiontech W1000. Whereas I want to keep access in the basement and add coverage to upstairs.

Any ideas on being able to config the Linksys(s) or using DD-WRT operating system?
 

A:Extending WiFi reach with Linksys AP or Router?

No problem with using the Access Point. Here is how to use the Linksys router ...

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. [You will not need a cross-over cable if one of the "routers" is a computer.... Read more

I have some pretty big events coming up in my personal life coming up over the next twelve months and want to set up a web site for about that duration to keep family and friends up to date with all that's going on with me.

I know a blog sounds ideal but I really need more of a traditional website for this. Thus, I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions where I may find a good site to host me.

I want something that's free, or cheap, with a nice short concise URL for my site, (custom if possible), and that has no ads/banners on the site that my visitors have to see. Can be pretty bare bones (don't need any HTML editors built in) but needs to be relatively reliable.

Well people keep saying to me get a good router with a good firewall .

Because I do not know really how firewalls work or much about routers I'm getting confused .When people say get good router with a good firewall.

Is this what I should be looking for in a good router .

good firewall is the router that will lock all traffic but the appropriate computers the admin sets up for the router only and no other computers can use that router and the use of logging .

Meaning if people are hacking my router ,unauthorized use of the router ( by not improved computer) or trying to log into the router by password guessing it will alert me.

My routers does not alert me or has that feature to alert me when there is unauthorized use of the router ( by not improved computer using the router ) or trying to log into the router settings by password guessing

And tell me if there is port scanning going on.

Greg,

The HD is secured from both sides. It sounds like your drive is in a large bay and has the adaptor rails attached to it to make the mechanical connection to the bay's frame.

You will have to remove the opposite side of the case to access the screws to totally release the drive rails.

I recently found a helpful Vista (and PC in general, Office 2007 too) resource. Woopid.com - Has a lot of video tutorials which are pretty nice/helpful. I'm no expert but I've been using it to send videos to my parents (it's a lot nicer than walking them through the same thing over and over again.

Anyways, I hope its a helpful recourse for the community. If you go the bundles page and scroll down you'll see a lot of groups of Vista videos as well.

Thanks!

I found this site not too long ago.

a7vtroubleshooting

It's very usefull for anyone using an A7V whether it be the original A7V, or the A7V133, A7V266, A7V266-e or even the A7V333.

You can find the latest BIOS for the different cards & there's a pretty good troubleshooting guide.
 

A:Good Site for ASUS A7V owners

That is a great site Didou, when I have my A7V's I used it all the time. I really loved those boards. I had a difference of opinion with the company that sells them here where I live and chose the Giga-byte over the Asus because I couldn't get the Asus local at the time. I still love their products, just have no place local to get them.

The only ones we can recommend are from Microsoft. Using any others requires using hacked files which we can't help you with.

Well I used to use spychecker.com.. but I havent needed it in a while.. now I could use the handy spyware lookup.. but the site is gone.. Does anyone know what happened to it? If it moved somewhere? Or if its gone does someone know of a reliable place to lookup programs and check if they're spyware?
I think its time to update my bookmakrs...

I am having alot of trouble downloading a large file, cause my isp is unreliable, I need a program that can resume downloads.. but most of them are loaded with spyware and the likes.. If anyone can sugguest a good one of those that would help too. I need one that doesnt install over my system ya know? I like downloading how it is, but sometimes with big files I might need to use an application that will help me resume if I get kicked

Any help with either of those would be greatly appreciated, I know this isnt the best forum to post it under, but since it was regarding spyware I thought it would be best to check here..
