    Hello everyone

    I am aware this particular question has been asked a lot but all the replies don't fit my problem!

    I can't access one particular website I used to access just fine till yesterday afternoon.
    I have tried with Mozilla on my laptop (Linux-Ubuntu) and with Safari on my partner's Mac. Same.It loads endlessly.

    I read it can happen when you access a website several times from different computers on the same network?

    We are on wireless. Our modem/router is the 02 Wireless box II.

    I do know that other people can access that particular website ( www.scurion.ch )

    I read it could be a dns problem?

    I have emptied Mozilla history and cache (including the files) and I don't have a firewall (not with Linux!)

    Thanks a lot!

    Marine.

    Have you tried this? Start>run>type CMD and enter. Now type ipconfig /flushdns

    Thanks but the problem is solved -the website service provider reset his firewall!

    (by the way i have Linux, so no Start>run>CMD , everything is in the Terminal.

    Alright guys, i spoke too quickly...it's not working any more [​IMG]

    Like I said, the website provider reset the firewall then I could access it without problem.

    Interesting: apparently this same website provider couldn't see my IP address anywhere (I gave it to them).

    Is it because i use wireless so my IP address is "mobile"?

    On my partner's computer (a Mac, using Safari), same trouble (it's working on wireless too)

    thank you for your help!
