Yes, I can't access the site from home now. It started about a week ago but I can get on from anywhere else. I get a DNS_Server_Failure and have looked all over the net for a fix. Contacted my ISP without a fix and FTE has not helped so far.
I am at work tonight and catching up while I can.
This is the only site I have found I can't get on!
DNS FAILURE, it is the ISP's dns servers not translating the name to ip, sometimes it takes a whilre for them to update, or your dns cache may need to be flushed, sometimes it gets so much crap in ther it gets clogged, especially if it cahed a bad entry. I do this on a bi-weekly basis at home.
Open up a command window and type this in:
It should read this back to you:
"Windows IP Configuration
Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache."
after that close the command window, resart IE and give it a shot.
Archion, I did that on my vista system and it did not understand the command! I need to try it on one of the 2 XP systems.
By the way I found a person on a computer tech forum that is having the same problem!
I talked to the ISP "wildblue" and they were on the phone with me for about an hour. They said it must be a problem with FTE because " if I had a DNS Server problem with them I could not get on the internet at all".
