I can't view specific website

February 28, 2011 at 19:08:48
Specs: Windows Vista
A website that I usually go to has all of a sudden stopped working for me. It is hackforums.net which I know is up because I have been on it outside of my home network. Every computer on my network will not allow me to go on hackforums.net . I have not added it to a firewall or anything. I have even set my router back to factory default and it still won't let me view hackforums.net from inside my network.

Perhaps you've been banned from the website for some reason. Try contacting the website admin with your concerns and questions.

No that's not the case because I can still access my account from other locations.

"No that's not the case because I can still access my account from other locations."

What is other locations? Is it locations within your office or outside your office. If it is inside they have their firewall setup to filter on key words such as hack. We have the same policies setup on ours.

Locations such as my girlfriends house, and just anywhere other than my house. Today at the library I was able to get on, but I haven't changed any settings in my firewall at home, so I'm not sure that is the case.

I would still contact the site admin and ask them about it. This could be an IP ban or any number of other issues. At the very least, contacting the admin will rule these out.

My guess is he is the admin of his home network. (Read post #4)

As for the issue, you seem to be having DNS issues. I would call your ISP and see what is up. You could double check your DNS to make sure it is right by doing an IPCONFIG /ALL. It should match the DNS that is assigned to the WAN port in your router. If not then you may have a virus that has modified your Netowrk Card Settings. Go into your network card's TCP/IP configuration and make sure it is set to automatic.
