    One website not loading on any device connected to WiFi
    « on: December 19, 2017, 08:56:48 PM »
    So out of nowhere this one website is not working on my computer. It won't load and it eventually goes to an error message. I've tried other devices, other browsers, and it won't work. I then tried it on my phone, after disconnecting from the wifi, and the website loaded no problem. So the problem is definitely the wifi. Now I don't get this because it worked 2 days ago no problem. From reading other posts I'm assuming it is a problem with the DNS Server. I have Comcast Xfinity but I can't figure it out from reading other forum discussions because they're all pretty old or different problems. So to summarize, One website is not working on my computer. All other websites work fine. The wifi connection is good. The one website that doesn't work on chrome, my default browser, doesn't work on any other browsers or on any other devices. When I tried it on my phone, after disconnecting from the wifi, it worked. Please help

      Are you using any kind of proxy for website requests?

      Any non-factory config on your router (firewall, DHCP, anything)? Have you tried factory-resetting the router yet?

        I took a couple screenshots of my network settings. Not completely sure if I am using a proxy. No non factory firewalls and I'm not sure about the DHCP. Maybe you can help from the screenshots. I did reset the router.

          Another thing, This problem occurred after visiting photobucket for the first time in a while. I was trying to post a picture to a forum. Thanks for the help. I really appreciate it.

            Very strange. I can't think of any reason why a single website would not work, only on Wi-Fi... the nature of the connection should be completely opaque to the website, it doesn't know which adapter you're using. Is your Wi-Fi especially slow?

              I'm stumped. The wi-fi is good. Not slow at all.

                Are you using a proxy or VPN to connect?

                  I'm not sure. Do you know how I would find that out? I attached a couple screenshots of my network settings in an earlier reply.
