Question about Mozilla Firefox
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 www.pagewash.com - 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.
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 192.168.0.1 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 spybot.org ) 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
