Cannot Access Adobe.com

I just purchased a new HP running Windows 7 Home Premium - 64 bit.  I started it up and tried accessing adobe.com.  I cannot access it.  I can access any other website that I have tried.  I have 3 other computers on my network that can access it.  I am using a a Netgear WNDR 3300 router with 2 Netgear GS605 Switches daisy chained.  I have read that adobe uses a 192 IP address.  Because of this my computer assumes it is an internal address.  I have tried to ping their ip and all of the packets are lost.  Any thoughts?

you can just run an IP config on any of those computers in a network.  

On the windows 7 computer:

Start -> cmd -> ipconfig /all

Also when you are at the command line you can try...

ipconfig /flushdns

This might remedy the issue if it is a DNS issue.

you may need to define adobe manually in your hosts file

(windows>system32>drivers>etc>hosts)

setup for the following NETBLOCK goes as follows: (ignoring content  in ()

192.150.8.200  adobe.com                         (http://www.adobe.com)
192.150.16.60  adobe.com/flashplayer/      (http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/)
192.150.16.59  get.adobe.com/flashplayer/download/   (http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/download/)

add those in the hosts file

Flushing the DNS did not work.  Below is the output of the ipconfig.  Also, now I have another computer that cannot access the internet at all.  It says there is an ip conflict on the network.  I have 1 laptop connected wirelessly, 1 laptop that does both wirelss and hardwired, 3 desktops hardwired, 1 printer , and one iphone.  Can you have too many devices on a network?  I have not assigned any of them ips.

change the default gateway to 10.0.0.0 I am noticing you have it as 192.168.2.1 which is not correct in your case.

Please setup in all workstations on network to this setting.

are all IPs setup as DHCP auto assign in windows? if not let it be auto assigned and verify router settings.

If i edit the hosts file using notepad, do I just save it back as a text file.  I tried to save it back by clicking on the file but it said access denied.

tick the following:

use the following IP address:
Ip address: 10.0.0.3
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 10.0.0.1

Obtain DNS automatically:
if it won't allow this check your router's config pages for the addresses or consult your ISP and enter thier IPs for the DNS section.

I cannot access your file.  When I changed the host file, it just saved as a text.  It made me save it to my documents, stating i do not have permission (i am the admin on it).  Then i moved it over to the directory.

hrrrm that is strange it should allow you to just click save and be done with it and not prompt you with anything. in that case you can download the handy-dandy hosts file from MVPS and then add your lines to the bottom and it should let you edit that one.

change the addresses for IPV4 unless you are on an IPv6 network.

I would do an ipconfig /release or and then ipconfig /renew on the computer experiencing the issues.  This issue seems to be limited to one computer.  Can we see an ipconfig /all form another pc that isn't experiencing the same issue?

skarilla.... that's why O told them to setup IP manually on all the OP's computers. next the OP will verify if successful.

I am awarding both of you.  I actually figured the problem out myself.  The problem was that my dsl modem (westell) was also acting like a DHCP sever in addition to my netgear router.  After netgear tech support was useless,, i did some researching and found out that i needed to turn off the westel modem DHCP. Once I did that and restarted my switches and computers all is good.  Thanks for your help though.
