Hello everyone

I am aware this particular question has been asked a lot but all the replies don't fit my problem!

I can't access one particular website I used to access just fine till yesterday afternoon.
I have tried with Mozilla on my laptop (Linux-Ubuntu) and with Safari on my partner's Mac. Same.It loads endlessly.

I read it can happen when you access a website several times from different computers on the same network?

We are on wireless. Our modem/router is the 02 Wireless box II.

I do know that other people can access that particular website (www.scurion.ch )

I read it could be a dns problem? Or I would need to change my MAC address?

I have emptied Mozilla history and cache (including the files) and I don't have a firewall (not with Linux!)

Thanks a lot!

Marine.

This is the page that I was automatically forwarded to.

Can you ping the address by name? By IP - 80.74.151.73

Start - Run - cmd
in the black box that opens type - ping www.scurion.ch - then enter
Also try - ping 80.74.151.73 - then enter.
Post results here.

Also in the black box type - tracert 80.74.151.73 to see where the ping is failing at. Post output here.

Linux - missed that part
Still works the same just open a terminal window.
You may have to install traceroute as it wasn't installed on mine - ubuntu 9.10

Ok i've just done Traceroute in Terminal but before putting the results here, do I have to make them a bit more anonymous?

thanks!

You can cut out your external IP if you want. It's more just to see what is blocking the packets. If it stops at a certain IP we can then find out what is on that IP and fix it if its internal. An external IP might not be fixable.

Your ping is getting out but not to the final address. It looks like its an external problem. Give it a day and see what happens on Friday.

what does it mean, if it is an "external" problem? I can't do anything about it?
I have given my ip address to the website owner who said he wanted to check with his internet provider...

Thank you for your help!

It is now working as the website service provider reset the firewall.

Thanks for your help, though! :)

Alright guys, i spoke too quickly...it's not working any more :( 

Like I said, the website provider reset the firewall then I could access it without problem.

Interesting: apparently this same website provider couldn't see my IP address anywhere (I gave it to them).

Is it because i use wireless so my IP address is "mobile"?

On my partner's computer (a Mac, using Safari), same trouble (it's working on wireless too)

thank you for your help!

Ok, I can now access the website using a proxy server, but still looking for a long-term solution...
