Unable to access specfic URL -
03-24-2012, 08:10 PM
I am unable to access the two sites I have on “comlu.com” on this ONE computer. I can access on my other two computers. I have disabled all firewalls and connected directly with the cable modem to isolate this computer. I have tried both IE and Firefox. I have 12 sites under one ID and 13 sites under another ID. I have reset all access to this one problem computer and added the problem URL to the "allowed" lists. Other people can access these very very simple high school websites. I am running Win7 pro and IE9.
Any help would be appreciated.
The url is www.lobospecial.comlu.com. I don't know where the * came from.
That one and the other one at www.lhs49gradeschool.comlu.com
work fine throght the proxy and other computers but not this one normally.I also cannot access them in 000webhost.com to edit them. I use one the other computers.
May be some outdated information in your computers cache, try the following. Empty the cache of both of your browsers first. Then open up a command line... Click Start then Run or for Windows 7 type in the search box "cmd", press return. This will open a command prompt, Type "ipconfig /flushdns", it'll say something like command completed successfully, close the window.
Try the websites again, if they still don't work, there is likely to be something wrong with the IP settings of the computer. Checking them a bit long-winded and hard to type out, so you will have to get a computer tech of some sort to check them for you, or just compare them to the settings of the computers that do work.
Flushing the dns and clearing the caches does not help. You mention to check the the IP settings of this computer to those that do work. Is there a site that might help me do this?
I can find them on this computer, I think.
I don't know of a specific site, as it isn't something I have had to follow previously, but what I do recommend is to set the PC to get its IP automatically using DHCP, this allows your router to issue to recommended IP Address, DNS settings etc. This is fairly easy to do with some guidance, so a simple search on google should yield some results.
Try a search along the lines of...
"how to set ip to DHCP windows xp" or for whichever windows you are using.
There are some good step by step tutorials out there, some with screenshots.
