I'm unable to access the website ( from my home router.

I thought that this problem would be from the server side but strange thing is that it is working on other networks! I have tried to access it through IE, chrome,FF, Opera, Safari, even tried from other PCs from my internet connection but no success. Does anyone have any idea why is this happening so?

Firewall filtering on router? Try changing DNS server and bypass the router. Check if you can traceroute to this www site. Try to access it via web proxy like and see if it works. Check netstat -a -n command while trying to connect to see if you got the connection in hanging SYN_SENT state or is it in different state. – mnmnc Dec 20 '12 at 7:48
Tried web prxoy, works there. 'netstat' is giving me SYN_SENT. Tried traceroute, looked up the ip on whois and got the following ERROR:201: access denied Queries from your IP address have passed the daily limit of controlled objects.Access from your host has been temporarily denied. – Yousuf Tafhim Dec 20 '12 at 9:36
You got a SYN_SENT status when connecting which means the router/firewall/ISP proxy(if exist) is not sending your SYN packet to the server or the SYN+ACK packet that should be sent to you from server is blocked when reaching the firewall from the outside. Either way this is configured on the firewall level. Especially since everything works via web proxy. – mnmnc Dec 20 '12 at 11:07
So what will be the next course of action? – Yousuf Tafhim Dec 20 '12 at 13:08
examine the firewall rules and if you will not find anything suspicious contact your ISP. – mnmnc Dec 20 '12 at 14:29
