we have an ADSL2+ service with Pacnet and a few weeks ago they relocated our service to a new address

Since they relocated the service we have been unable to access some websites like www.webcity.com.au or optus webmail and a few other random ones

i can ping the website and a trace route comes backs all good

Pacnet even got me to try there test adsl account and still had the same problem
i have there correct DNS ip address entered

even tried using there own proxy setting and still nothing

all i get is page cannot be displayed after 30 seconds to a minute of trying

Hi

Did you try a different browser?
Internet explorer has many bugs. I have seen small changes to the network that break internet explorer. The only way to get it going again, is to either reset the browser settings, or upgrade to the latest version.

Install Firefox and see if it works - http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/

if you do:
 nslookup www.webcity.com.au

do you get:
    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name:    www.webcity.com.au
    Address:  210.8.91.40
?

That means that you are getting the correct IP address if you connect to www.webcity.com.au

Your name server 192.168.100.2 is functioning correctly.

Please post the output of ipconfig /all from command prompt.

Your DNS server and Gateway is not the same?
  Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.100.254
  DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.100.2

Do you have a DNS server on your local network ?
What is the IP address of your ADSL router ? Is it 192.168.100.254 or 192.168.100.2 ?

Since you can ping the website hostname, DNS appears to be functioning correctly, so does your default gateway.

Can you try to use the following command from a command prompt window:
telnet www.webcity.com.au 80
If running Windows 7, you need to (temporarily) add the telnet client feature.
If you successfully connect to port 80, you should see a black cmd screen with a blinking cursor, type "get" (without the quotes) and hit enter, you should see some HTML code.
If the connection fails, you will get a timeout.

this way you can determine if it's a browser/proxy issue.

Ok, if you get nothing after typing get with the black screen and blinking cursor, it seems like there's something else between you and the webserver.
Do you have software installed that scans websites for malicious scripts?
Maybe something like an internet security suite?
If you do, try to disable it and test again.

Does a traceroute or pathping show any bottlenecks perhaps?
If all your clients are having the same problem, I'd think that the problem is either your gateway or a problem with your new ISP.

You didn't answer my gateway / DNS server question?

Can you try it with 192.168.100.2 as the gateway for the Realtek RTL8169 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter.

Also, is the WAN (PPP/SLIP) Interface disabled, because I see it has no gateway?
Two active interface cards may confuse the routing table, causing only one-way connectivity to work.

Just the fact that other websites do work should be enough evidence that DNS is working and the default gateway is also correct.
You ruled out proxy settings and internet security software.

Is your SBS server acting as a NAT server or is ISA installed?
If it's ISA, the firewall could also be the problem.

Please post the output of:

1) tracert www.webcity.com.au  

2) tracert www.google.com

if www.google.com is working, else use another website that works.

Let see if they both use the same route to the ISP.

Ok. That proves nothing.

If you are sure there is nothing between the PC and the router that will block the web connections, then the problem must be with the ISP.

Can the support people at your ISP open the website?
Do you have any other way to connect to the Internet, so that we can eliminate the ISP?
Perhaps a 3G or GPRS modem, or wireless on another ISP network?

You can try a factory reset.
Most ADSL routers have a little reset switch that will clear its config.
It is usually on the back or bottom side of it.

Look for a hole with a button in it.

Sounds like there may be a setting in the firewal of the router blocking your connection to that site, or the protocol that site uses.
I agree, either factory reset your modem, or check for firewall rules that could be causing the issue.
