Unable to connect to certain website..

February 18, 2018 at 16:47:05
Specs: Windows 10
Suddenly I am not able to access a certain web site from any machine on my home network with Windows 10 or 7. www.peotoneweather.com 23.229.195.3 Computers not on my network can access the site fine. When I attempt to access the site or ping it times out, I have tried Firefox and I.E. with the same results. I have power cycled the router and restarted my computer with the same result.
Any help would be appreciated.

"www.peotoneweather.com"
No problem for me.

But, I also have suddenly got one site that won't display properly on any of my comps or browsers, all I haven't tried is a different router, which I will do later.

Maybe it is due to an W10 update!

Long shot and it has been the cause for me a few times, with websites that suddenly won't connect..

Check proxy settings haven't changed...; that the setting to use one hasn't been invoked...

I get this occasionally with my Mac systems and and find the the proxy setting (which I leave unchecked) has suddenly been checked (not by me) in a couple of varieties...

Usually affects sites related to Yahoo, and occasionally even this one?

Some have found a full reset of the router resolves this problem; occasionally just a simple reboot to same end.

Remember that full reset means all settings you have made (including wifi etc.) will be erased; and the router set back to as new. Thus you have to recreate any settings you made previously.

If you only restarted the computer then restarting the router and modem (if separate) as well as any switches you have.
I just had to replace a switch that went bad, its lights showed good but everything plugged into it was not getting internet, when I bypassed it with one computer all was good for that one. Just ran over to Microcenter to pick up a new switch. All works now. They should last forever..... Oh well (probably made in China). Too bad 16ports are 4x the price of an 8port and never seen a 10 or 12 port.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Incidentally does the problem persist with both Wi-Fi and Ethernet?

Can you test the system (presuming it's a laptop?) using another router and see if the wifi will allow it via that one?

Or borrow another known good router and test that way if you're using a desktop?

*** Is it possible that your ISP has its own weather related channel and might be blocking access to it?
Or... Check the settings on your router to see if the site is listed as a blocked site on there.
And... Check your antivirus program to see if the site appears on their blocked sites list (if one).
I had no problem viewing it either.

There may be a problem at the isp too. Their dns lookup servers me be faulty. Have you had a chat with them to see if they can check things their end?

Mine has just come good, tried 4 different routers, reset all of them back to factory default, tried different cables, no luck, could not get the ADSL light working.
Went to the indoor connecting point of my phone line where it entered the house, removed & then reconnected,
ADSL light working, reconfigured the router.

@Johnw, is there an over voltage arrest-er on your Tel-line? Could be damaged and pulling one wire of the Tel pair to ground. Is your incoming signal still strong as before?
