I am getting a network time out and network connection lost on one website. Sometimes I am able to log in and then i get the error. I have tried it on another network and the site works. How can i allow my network view this site?

Are the networks connecting to the Internet through different providers?

If so, it could be the dns server of the one malfunctioning to be down or overloaded. Try using the google DNS's on the network config (

Thanks. How and where do I do that at?
If you're on a windows machine, go to the network properties and add the DNS addresses below:

After that a DNs flush helps:

I tried changing the dns and I am still getting the same error only on the one website. I have tried it on another network and I am able to get in, but I need to get mine working.

I changed the DNS and did the flush and still getting the same error. In fact, now it is happening on other sites and my internet seems to have slowed way down.
Hi again,

You can set it back on automatic and run ipconfig /flushdns again.

Can you access it through an anonymizer, likethis one?

That could be malware behavior, which you can check afterwards.

I have sent back to automatic and flushed.

I tried the anoymizer and I am unable to login to the site, it keeps looping back to the homepage.
Bigred92123Author Commented:
I tried the anoyomizer site again and it timed out this time.
The login issue is expected, those proxy sites won't allow you regular access to a website. This was only to test if it reached the site.

If your computer is acting slower, then it could be malware. One way of checking (and hopefully repairing) is to run something like Malwarebyte Anti-Malware:

Ok. But ran the malware and nothing came up. I need to access this site through my network. Is their a way to reset everything and start fresh or get this issue taken care of?
Can you explain how you network actually is? E.g. you're on computer that connects to a router/model that connects directly to the internet? Or are you on a larger network?

Home network. Connects to a netgear router.
Thanks. Getting back to the beginning - the issue could be with your internet provider's DNS's, and you can be experiencing a temporary issue.

Do a traceroute to your site to see how far it reaches (windows command line, Start > Run > cmd):

Here are the results of the traceroute and ping (This is all greek to me). Remember that this is a site that requires me to login. I am able to login, it is only once I begin to navigate do I get the connection error.

With those hellish times and behavior, my best guess would there is something wrong with the page you're actually reaching. I.e. the server is rejecting or somehow complicating the request from one of the networks you're using.

Is it possible for you to contact that site's administrator? I noticed it's an .edu site, it should be straightforward to find out the IT department. You should send them the same excerpt you pasted in your last comment.

Thanks. What concerns me is that I am able to connect from another network at someone elses house. Any ideas why that is?
If at your house you can connect to other websites just fine then I would tend to think that it might be something wrong with the website server's you're trying to reach configuration.

Still on your computer, have you tried disabling firewall/anti-virus software? Is there any other device you can try in your home network (another computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.)?

There are not any firewalls or anti virus programs that I am aware of (or can find).  I have tried 3 laptops, 2 desktops and 1 ipad and i get the same error. I thought getting a new modem would work, but I cannot get it to connect to the internet.  I got the Motorola SB6121.

Would replacing the modem help?  I cant get this one to work.
