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

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.
