Question about Mozilla Firefox

Page Load Error - Network Time out

I'm using IE 7 and Firefox 3. I'm able to pull up all websites
i type in but one on my desktop PC. The error I'm getting is
"Page Load Error" Network Timeout The server at .com
is taking too long to respond.

However on my phone through sprint and on my laptop through same
Comcast modem I use for my PC I'm able to see the site. It's not a
the host server otherwise i wouldn't be able to pull it up on my
phone and laptop, or so i think. I've tried turning off my firewall and still
i can not pull up site.

I've Talked to tech of host site. Went to - That site removes
all ISP proxy settings and runs it thru a clean proxy. It worked there so he told me
problem is on the network somewhere between my computer and the ISP or the ISP out to the net.

Unfortunately my ISP does not have "real" techs and i'm still talking with people reading canned answers.

    Hi Chris,
    I've ran both mcafee and spybot . Nothing found and also tried your 1st suggestion. I think it has something to do with the DNS as I'm able to see other websites just not this one.

    Thanks again..

Hey there MrTDubb,
I have a few ideas you may have tried already, but just in case you haven't, here you are..
First type into the URL internet browser bar.
Enter your router's username and password. If you haven't secured the router try 'cusadmin' and 'highspeed', or 'admin' and 'password', in order to confirm that the problem is isolated to your computer, or otherwise.
If you can't access that, then navigate to your Control Panel and go into Internet Options. Hit the Connections tab and make sure 'Never dial a connection' is clicked in it's radio box.
If it is not, click it, reboot and try Firefox again.
If it is clicked, then maybe you have malware, in which case you could download Spybot (from ) onto your laptop and transfer it with a usb drive or disk to your computer, install it, Check for Problems, wait 20 minutes, Fix Selected Problems, hit the Immunize tab on the left, click Immunize, exit and reboot.

If that doesn't work, then there is probably something wrong with either your ethernet cable, your ethernet port, or the modem driver in malfunctioning in some way.

I guess you are probably pretty frustrated by this point anyway, but if you just go down the possibilities I've listed, one at a time, then you should at least be able to isolate the problem.

Let me know how you get on.. Two heads are better than one :)

Good Luck and Season's Greetings and all that, mate

    oh sorry mate, I didn't read your posting properly! I have been up all night hoho. I could've saved myself a bit of typing there i guess..
    If you cannot reach just the one site, then their server is probably down or overloaded or you need to try going through a proxy or something.Try running your browser in Protected Mode or Silent Mode or something..
    For another wild conclusion check this BBC page about internet cables being cut in the Mediterranean.. :O

When I am on the internet most times I get an error that an unexpected error has occured & my browser page just closes & dissapears. I have internet exployer 7. Can someone please help me.

Yes its a problem with Internet Explorer (IE). Try to upgrade it to latest version.

OR you can switch to another browser like Firefox, Opera or Chrome. These load pages faster, don't hang and yes they don't close pages by themselves.




Note: The Links are only for Windows downloads, if you have Linux or Mac, browse to the respective pages and look for appropriate files.

How do i change my homepage to Yahoo?

Bring up the browser window and let it load to whatever page it is set for. Once it loads, click up in the address bar and type in and click enter. When the Yahoo screen loads, click on the "Tools" column and scroll down to "Internet Options". In this window the first area you see is the homepage tab. Click on "Use Current", this will make the current page your home page, which is Yahoo. Click apply and OK.

It seems your system has a problem with Java updates or some spyware infection. First way to fix this problem is by reseting the IE7, Tools-IE options- Advanced- Reset-Reset All. The other permanent solution is to download Mozilla Firefox which is a better browser than IE.
