    Hello I haven’t been on this website for a long time since it was xperience.org (years ago) I went by the name canibus. Anyway I’m glad I found this site again and re-registered.

    I also have a problem I hope some of you can help out.

    here is my situation
    wireless router 3 pc's wired 1 laptop wireless
    on all of my wired connections I can access these website http://www3.sunysuffolk.edu/index.asp

    and
    http://optonline.net


    how ever on my wireless connection I cannot access either of them.
    I just reinstalled windows xp home on the laptop today, running IE


    at one point i could access optonline.net but it just stopped working. so i formated the system and i still cant access it, but now i cant access sunysuffold.edu which i used to be able to access but since the format i cant ( i need that site for school )



    Any ideas? This is really bugging me out


    Thanks guys

    make sure all your computers are using your ISP's DNS and not your routers or private network's DNS.

    Also check to make sure they are getting valid IP addresses, not 169.x.x.x

    My guess is also DNS.

    To verify, you could open the command prompt from the laptop and ping 66.54.17.31 -- this is optonline.net. If you get good replies then it is DNS-related. If you can ping it, you could even enter that IP in your browser and the site should come up.
