[SOLVED] Can't access github and more...

Recommended Posts

I have on idea why suddenly I can't access specific sites like github.com, gravatar.com (which means I can't see your gravatars here on PW forum), my bank's e-banking site and others.

I tried to access them with different browsers but no luck. I'm getting the error ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT and when I'm running the Windows Network Diagnostics I'm getting this:

github.jpg.ecd272520e8a3ad255eec3a63ce08412.jpg

I used the command ipconfig /flushdns, I rebooted my router, I disabled Avast Free Antivirus and still I can't access them.

What should I do to fix it???

Some things to check that are usually overlooked:
1. Your internet provider could have changed some settings on their side. In that case you have to reboot your router. 2. Your internet provider can have a temporary dns problem. Configure your network adapter from dynamic to a static dns, e.g. the one that google provides (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4) and see what happens. Open up a cmd or terminal window and ping a few different public ip's to check your internet line. 3 Uninstalling an Anti Virus program or a vpn can leave an abandoned virtual adapter or private settings in your network adapter.

@pwired I've already rebooted my router multiple times. I switched to google's dns (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4) but I'm having the same problem.

I haven't uninstalled my antivirus, I've only temporary disabled it.

In incognito mode, the websites load correctly ?

 

Also you can try to clear the DNS cache, in a terminal type :

 

1) ipconfig /flushdns 
2) ipconfig /registerdns 
3) ipconfig /release 
4) ipconfig /renew 
5) netsh winsock reset

If it doesn't work, you should open a ticket on your ISP.

PS: I had problem accessing Github and ProcessWire this last 23 April.

Same problem with incognito mode. I've already tried the above commands. I'm gonna call my ISP.

Haven't call my ISP yet cause I thought to do 1 last thing. I disconnected my router and connected to internet from an old router and now everything is working fine. So the problem is caused by the newest router. I guess I should hard reset it.

Did your router get and auto-update or something like that? Maybe one of the following settings is mis-configured.

  • Safe-surf (child protection, adult filter)
  • White-/Blacklist misconfiguration

Are all devices in your network affected?

A hard reset and a reboot fixed the problem :)
Thank you all for trying to help.
