I am the network admin for our company. We have a cisco asa 5510 router. Our problem is we are trying to get to a website and it does not load or know where to find it. It worked about two weeks ago. When I google the website I can click on it but it just sits there like it cannot find the website. www.softballfans.com . It seems like the router or the dns cannot find the location of this site anymore. I know it works because I can get to it on my smartphone. I can ping it and it gives me a address of 67.43.10.5 i've even tried putting that in the web browser address field. I tried to flush dns and that didn't seem to help either. I think it may be my router?

Did you have a look at the logs on your router/firewall?

If your router thinks it's a local site it may be trying to get to it on the LAN. Does it change the address to something like 192.xxx.xxx.xxx or 10.xxx.xxx.xxx ?

It still might be wise to give it a shot and check the firewall logs. You never know what you might find ;)
