Hi,

My internet seems to malfunctioning and the store's closed so I can't order a new one right now. For some reason I can't access any other servers through either Firefox, Opera, MUSHClient, MudMage, Telnet and whatever else I've tried.

I'm able to browse through this website quite fine and I actually downloaded the Smaug exe to test whether I'm really connected or not. This thread will be further proof to me.

I'm sorry if this really doesn't belong here, though I expect few will see it because it's not really a high-traffic spot.

If any DOES see this and can suggest reasons why I'm only able to view this website and not the rest of the internet I would be very, very grateful.

Thanks.

Well since you posted, that rules out cache...

You do seem to be connected. Are you using any firewalls (software or router)?

The only firewall I'm using is the windows xp firewall which I disabled to test but found nothing changed.

I'm thinking along the lines of hax.

What error message do you get? Sounds to me like your DNS is not working - and your PC has cached "www.gammon.com.au" but can't look up any new sites.

I would check that your DNS server is responding - possibly your ISP is having problems.

For example, try "mushclient.com" which is actually this same site. If it doesn't find it, then you definitely have a DNS problem.

Hm, http://www.mushclient.com/ doesn't work, so I guess that I'll have to contact my isp about it. Thanks a whole bunch!

Can you get to http://72.14.207.99 at all? That'll show us if it is a DNS issue.
