On my wireless network at home, there is one URL that I just cannot access with my browser:
I have no problems with the Internet connection otherwise. But on that address I just get
The connection was reset The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.
from Firefox. I am using a DSL modem (Westell) and Linksys wireless router (using DHCP). When I use my neighbor's wireless connection I can access the microsoft site without a problem.
Additional technical details:
But with my connection, here is what I get from
nslookup. It is weird: It first cannot find the address, but after I look up another address it can find it:
$ nslookup research.microsoft.com ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached $ nslookup google.com Non-authoritative answer: Name: google.com Address: 126.96.36.199 Name: google.com Address: 188.8.131.52 Name: google.com Address: 184.108.40.206 Name: google.com Address: 220.127.116.11 $ nslookup research.microsoft.com Non-authoritative answer: Name: research.microsoft.com Address: 18.104.22.168
But even after
nslookup finds it Firefox still cannot access it.
Here is what
