Unable to open a particular website

Specs: Windows 7
Hi all,
I am unable to reach a particular website from my home computer. But its easily accessible from office computer. I have cleared the cache in the browser, tried to flush the dns cache using ipconfig /flushdns. Nothing helps. Ping / tracert says - "Request timed out". Any pointers? Thanks in advance.

Is it an intranet site? That would be the only reason for the block. What's the URL?

It works fine here. Do you have Norton Internet Security or some other garbage running on your machine? Have you tried a different machine at home or at least a different browser?

I have Sophos antivirus. I tried disabling the firewall and reaching the website - doesnt work!
Next, i tried in a different browser, same computer - doesnt work.
Next, i tried in a different laptop - doesnt work.
If i try to login from office (same systems), it works absolutely fine.
Something wrong with the internet settings?

That points to your router or your ISP. I can't understand why either one of them would be blocking that site.

ipadmin@sifycorp.com
+91-44-22540770

That's the contact info for that site. Open the web interface of your router. Make sure that nothing is blocking it there.

The web interface for my router can be reached at 192.168.1.1, right? Can you please elaborate a bit more on how to achieve what you just said? I'm sorry, i did try a few things in the router settings, looking for something like 'blocked address' or the like, but no luck.

I really didn't expect any blocks by the router. The router & the ISP are really just long shots. Each router is different. Look at the DHCP list. See if there is anything listed as filtered or blocked.

I posted an email address & a phone # of the people who run the site. You might want to contact them.
