I have multiple computers at a remote site.  2 of them suddenly can not access our outward facing ordering website.  I have tried flushing dns, tried logging in to an administrator account, restarting computer, trying different browsers.  It's seemingly just this one website.  I also looked at doing a restore but there wasn't a good restore point and nothing installed that looks like it would have effected anything.  I need help in gaining access again.

On one computer, try to use a DNS of 4.4.4.4 or 8.8.8.8 as the primary DNS and see if one of these DNS addresses work.

Can one of the remote computers go to a different (non company) location and try?

dohrmann--What changes did you make on your outward facing ordering website just before the problem started?

If I change to 8.8.8.8, I can get to our outward facing website but then nothing internally.  No, I can't take the computer offsite and I didn't make any changes to our website before the problem started.

There seems to be something wrong with your DNS setup. Try setting an internal DNS as primary and 8.8.8.8 as secondary.

Does that allow your web pages?

Did that already, no go on primary and secondary.  By the way, it's only one computer now that is giving me the problems.

Thanks for the update, especially that it is just one computer.

On the problem computer, try resetting TCP/IP to see if that helps.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/299357 for instructions to reset TCP/IP and

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Troubleshoot-Internet-connection-problems  for general troubleshooting steps.

Let us know and then we can go from there.

I did the reset of the TCP/IP, reboot, still no change.  I'll look at the troubleshooting tips, but they look pretty vague....yes, the computer is connected to the network and the router is on. ;-)

In a quick summary, DNS changes do not help; using a different user profile does not help; resetting TCP/IP does not help.

Can you determine why the other computer started working?

If nothing works, the problem computer may have a virus (VERY common amongst users who do not pay attention) and then it may be faster to reimage the computer.

I solved this awhile back by adding the IP address and website to the Host file.
