Netgear 802.11B cannot connect to website

I have an interesting question.  Have been trying to figure this out for a while with no luck.
We have a Netgear 802.11 B wireless router at home.  When I try to access a website (www.btcommercial.com) I cannot get to this site through the access point.  If I turn off the router I can get to the website straight through my DSL connection.  I am having this problem on a desktop and a laptop.
There is not a host file blocking me from getting to this site.  When I enter the static IP for the site I also cannot get through.
If I access www.aol.com, and then enter the website from within AOL I am able to reach the site fine.  
This has been driving us bonkers because we cannot find a setting that may be blocking access.  There has been a couple of different network engineers looking at this problem and no-one has been able to resolve issue.

You may want to adjust the MTU on the machines
this refers to ICS, but the theory is the same
http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/article04-107
change MTU on client
use drtcp to change the MTU settings

Good questions Steven,

When you ping by name does it resolve the IP, and does it respond? And does it work when you ping it by IP.

Then the tracert is important.

What model router is this? and are the clients connected wirelessly or trough wired ports? What is the configureations on the router.   I have tried to duplicate the problem but no success. When your on the aol service your going trough there gateways for the browseing....I think the problem is in the router it self. What version rom in the router?

OK, it didn't work, did you get it fixed, or we can continue trying to fix this :-)
again can you ping, what does tracert show?
If you don't know how to do these commands let us know and we can show you (easy)

Lots of times what we syggest doesn't fix it, so the way this site works (interactive) is we make suggestions, you try them, let us know how it went, and then we make more suggestions, until we get it working
but we need the feedback from you :-)

Well we are able to ping the IP address from the device.  I am thinking it may be a setting on the router but I am not sure what that might be.

stevenlewisCommented:
on any machine tht is connected to it go to a prompt and type
ipconfig /all
make note of the gateway address, this should be the ip of the router

Hello,

I just subscribed here hoping to see a solution to this issue but it appears there is none...yet. I am having the exact same issue. I cannot access my site www.eslemployment.com from behind my netgear router. If I connect directly to my comcast cable modem I can see it no problem. I can access any other site I can think of...just not www.eslemployment.com. I get the 'page cannot be displayed' error. I can also not connect by ftp, ssh, etc.

I have a Netgear WGR614 v 1

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Jake
