Solved One website won't load specifically with WiFi+laptop combo

November 29, 2015 at 00:23:11
Specs: Windows 8.1, c13 / 4GB
The website I created recently won't load specifically on laptops when I use my Wifi connection at home. If I use my mobile data network via Hotspot, the site loads on same laptops. Additionally, teh site loads on my mobile if I use Wifi in stead of the Mobile Data. So, the problem is the website doesn't open specifically on laptops via the Wifi connection. DOesn't matter which browser I try. But with any other internet connection, there's no problem.

Check hardware firewall configuration within your home WiFi router, the website may be being blocked.

✔ Best Answer
Have you tried accessing your website using wifi using a laptop in some other location which uses the exact same browser - friends house for example? Can't really see how this can be a website issue but I guess it should be eliminated from the equation.

Similarly, from your own location is it the same on another browser, Firefox for example (if you are using IE).

What exactly happens when you try to open the website - any error message?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thanks Derek and Phil.

The problem seems to be persistent only with Wifi. If i connect my laptop to the router via LAN cable, the website works fine.

Derek, to answer your questions, when it's not working via WiFi, it's not working on any browser. Also, it works on my laptop if I move to another Wifi zone.

Currently I am working via LAN cable when I have to work on this site. For other surfing, WiFi is good.

Very strange. Have you tried powering off the router for half a minute to see if that helps when it comes back? I've known some odd-ball symptoms cleared that way. I realise it works on Ethernet but more than once I have had a router ignore one of my devices until it was powered off/on - not quite your symptoms I realise. The bigger gun would be to reset the router (usually a pin hole) then set it up again.

Also, if you are prepared to give a link to your website we can try our hook ups on it.

Derek,

Yes, I tried resetting the router. Didn't work. It seems that problem was router specific. I tried using an old router lying around, and there's no problem with it now. It must be something with that particular device. The website is http://therationalhour.net

Thanks for your helpful inputs.

Confusing symptom but it did start looking like some sort of odd ball router issue.

Website was fine on my laptops using Wifi.

Thanks for popping back with the info.
