I can't seem to access a particular website, http://www.TotalGFX.net

My friends seem to be able to access it but I cannot. Here's a screen of what I get when I try to enter it in Firefox


I have another computer connected to the same router, and it can't connect either. My friend who lives two blocks away with the same ISP can connect perfectly however.

A quote from my ISP (MTS)

MTS recommends using an MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) setting of 1400. The MTU controls the amount of information to be sent at one time when you are accessing the Internet. If you are experiencing difficulties accessing secure websites or sending email attachments, your MTU setting should be changed to 1362. If you are using a router, instructions on changing this setting should be outlined in the support documents supplied by your router vendor.

The full text can be found here

I set the MTU on my local machine AND on the router to 1362 and it hasn't changed a thing. I tried rebooting the router and it won't work.

My hosts file is empty and my DNS service has been tried Manual, Automatic, Stopped, Started, Disabled and still nothing works.

I also can't access a site using the same nameserver, http://www.wowenkho.com/

So it's either a problem with my ISP, my Router or the nameservers at fh-net.com (ns1.fh-net.com and ns2.fh-net.com)

Thanks for any help I can get here,

EDIT: I currently have a D-Link 604 router

Borrow another router from somebody to eliminate that.
If you got a modem from your ISP, plug that into one computer and use that for a while, see if it lets you go where you want to go.

If this was an ISP issue, nobody else would be able to connect to it, so logic says that this is an issue with your setup and I cast the first stone that its either the router or the internet connection, as that's two systems that can't talk to the same site.
