Unable to load www.nvidia.com - among others

Post by gregando » Sun Mar 08, 2009 2:55 pm

Hi,

I am unable to load the www.nvidia.com website. If I try to ping it, it resolves to a1650.g.akamai.net [220.233.2.170] but does not get a reply.

It has been like this for (at least) days now, I have tried manually specifying DNS servers to no avail. Other sites like facebook seem to be very slow and intermittent, whilst other sites have been quite fast to load. Very confusing. Am I the only one having this trouble? It occurs on every PC on this network.

ANSWER: Power cycle your ADSL modem. Even though it seems to be working, something must be cached or something.
