I can't access http://www.lynda.com/ with any of my browsers on my home network.

By checking http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/, I can see that the server is up and I can access it via a proxy like TOR.

This screen appears immediately after I type the page in

It doesn't even try to load the page, it seems. Though when I ping the server I get this:

I tried to do ipconfig /flushdns. But it didn't help either.

Anyone know how to fix this?

  • What DNS addresses are you using? If you have a Linksys router, this question may be helpful: superuser.com/a/394731/100787

  • Are you trying to access from a country that censors the internet? Are you behind a badly-configured corporate firewall that silently drops connections instead of hijacking and displaying a "you're not allowed" message?

    Instead of ping which just gives a pass/fail, try using tracert to see where the connection is getting lost. Jun 21, 2012 at 19:28
  • @Wooble I'm at home in Norway (uncencored). The webpage has worked before. Though this page works: screencast.com/t/N4hxBu5m So I'm not behind any badly-configured corporate firewall. Jun 21, 2012 at 20:19
  • @iglvzx I've tried my ISP's DNS servers and Google's (8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4) None worked... Jun 21, 2012 at 20:20

Instead of ping which just gives a pass/fail, try using tracert to see where the connection is getting lost.

If both ping and tracert respond immediately with a General failure., it is defiantly a problem with your PC. Do you have any security apps installed like Malwarebytes? Other solutions I've seen around involve changing various settings on the NIC.
