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

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
?

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    www.webcity.com.au
Address:  210.8.91.40
 
what does this mean when i do a nslook up ?
Pieter Jordaan


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 help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

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.

i just tried that on my clients server (remotely) and my local laptop and terminal server and i just get the same result where i see the black screen i type get and nothing happens on the seconds line just a black screen with a cursor

Antyrael

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.

yeh looks like i have to go back to the ISP again
Pieter Jordaan


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?

i tried the netgear modem at the office and those web sites work

Pieter Jordaan


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.
eviljester

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.
