View Full Version : Issues with a website
10-09-2004, 01:43 PM
Hey folks. I have been trying to log onto www.nassaufirepipes.com (http://www.nassaufirepipes.com) for about a month and a half now to no avail. I do not remember exactly the error message IE gives me for not logging onto it but it gives me some jive about my security settings all of which I have tried to change again to no avail. I have been able to access it from every other computer I have tried at least one of which has the exact same software installed as mine. The setup I am currently using is Windows XP with SP2 update. I have also tried firefox's web browser but it didnt work either. This is happeing on both my PC and my notebook. Both of which are from Dell new February of this year. I was able to access the site earlier this year and then all of a sudden poof! No more. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

That is correct I am trying to log onto the site to view it. They are friends of my band so I like to check it out from time to time.

I am running XP Pro with SP2, no problems at all.

FWIW, it works fine under Mac OS X 10.3.5, using Safari. The only thing I see seriously wrong with the site is that there is no link on their links page to my site . . .
Same here....XP with SP2... no problems

Sorry to keep this one going but here is the error message I'm getting. Maybe it will help?
The page cannot be displayed
The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings.

Click the Refresh button, or try again later.
If you typed the page address in the Address bar, make sure that it is spelled correctly.
To check your connection settings, click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the Connections tab, click Settings. The settings should match those provided by your local area network (LAN) administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).
See if your Internet connection settings are being detected. You can set Microsoft Windows to examine your network and automatically discover network connection settings (if your network administrator has enabled this setting).
Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options.
On the Connections tab, click LAN Settings.
Select Automatically detect settings, and then click OK.
Some sites require 128-bit connection security. Click the Help menu and then click About Internet Explorer to determine what strength security you have installed.
If you are trying to reach a secure site, make sure your Security settings can support it. Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the Advanced tab, scroll to the Security section and check settings for SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, PCT 1.0.

are you using any kind of firewall such as zone alarm or other?
as well what version of internet explorer are you using?
do you have any similar problems with other sites?
how do you connect to internet dialup, cable, highspeed or other?
one last question. what anti virus and version are you useing.
btw servicepack 2 winXP pro working fine after i disabled the fire wall and the virus checker told it i would keep up to date myself and no more complications.

sorry i forgot one more thing.
are all the puters at home networked?

I do not have a firewall installed on either computer. I have informed Windows that I will watch over such things.
The PC has a virus scanner from I believe Computer Associates installed the notebook has none.
IE version 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158
Have not found another site that I experience the same problems at.
Cable modem routed via wireless to the notebook and landline through the router for the PC.
They are networked through the above Linksys wireless router.
I do not remember if the site stopped working before I installed the router or not. I can say that it had stopped working before the installation of SP2.

The way to trouble shoot is to remove everything and start bare bones.
So remove the router, disable Anti virus, disable firewall, internet sharing, file and print sharingm,etc, and hook up direct and test your sites. When I say disable firewall and anti virus it is only for a short test. Do not run like this for long.
If it works with bare bones the start to add one thing at a time and test, if it works add another and test again. Do this until you find the problem. If you go bare bones and it does not work, then the problem is may be with your ISP.

So that was easy enough. So now the question becomes what do I do to make it so I can use my router AND view the page at the same time?
BTW The first thing I tried was unplugging the router and plugging the modem directly into the computer again. And tada it works!
Thanks for all the suggestions guys!

I would believe that the problem stems from your network configuration if you are not connecting, through the router but do connect directly.
i say this because if your system does not detect a network then the network configurations dont kick in. only the internet protocol's are in effect.
either that or if you have a router that is configurable then check and double check your router configuration.
check the manual for the Linksys wireless router it may give you a clue.
if not then check the faq's on the linksys website for possible solutions. or just google it!
good luck and let me know how it turns out. :)
