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.

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


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!
