I can not access or ping this one site from my PC. I can access it from my laptop on the same network just not from my pc. I used to be able to access it.

Thanks for your help.

Can you post a link to the site you are having trouble with? If it's not family friendly, PM it to me directly.

Are you sure you can't "ping" the website...
To make sure, go to "Start"-->"All programs"-->"Command Prompt"(Command Prompt might be under the Accesories folder..)

And type in the DOS Prompt: "ping www.google.com" (without the quotation marks and your own website that's not working..if it's not receving any packets then you have a problem with the site..)

Hope that helps.. :whistling:

Check your active X settings in your browser, security and/or ad blocking programs. When I don't allow the active X, the page won't display.

In IE Tools> Internet Options>Security tab> highlight Internet > click Custom Settings and scroll to check settings.

do you have a firewall on this pc? like the windows firewall? generally it's set by default to limit ICMP traffic...so it may be blocking the ping replies...try completely turning the firewall off and ping the site..
