Not sure if I'm posting in right forum but here we go.
I am trying to view a web page from my home computer via a wireless router, I have a printer and my i phone also routed. A certain page that I am trying to view in a browser gives a 404 error. Yet I can view the pages from another computer. I know the files are on the server as I have checked my remote files. I have tried taking down my firewall, disconnected all other devices through the router so only my laptop is connected, and have tried using Chrome, firefox and IE to view these pages. Something is blocking these pages somewhere I have also tried taking off the routers security but still have the same ' file not found on the server'
Has anybody got any ideas what I try next?

A 404 error is generated by the website in question, not by the browser you're using. This would be the case on all computers. The 404 or Not Found error message is a standard response code indicating that the client was able to communicate with the server, but the server could not find what was requested. 404 errors should not be confused with "server not found" or similar errors, in which a connection to the destination server could not be made at all.

Are you sure you're not receiving a 403 or a 500 error instead?
