asp.net forums - where did they go? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Until Monday 10/18/10 I used the www.asp.net url to access video, tutorials and forum pages.  Now the url and any associated with asp.net returns a

    Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

    error.  The same thing occurs with every computer in the house, different users and different routers.

    What has changed with the asp.net sites?

  • The site opens fine for me. It could have been a temp problem, can you re-try?

  • Just tried again - same error.  I wonder if my carrier, Comcast, could be blocking it?

    any ideas?

    Thanks

  • Comcast says they don't block any sites.

    Mozilla - Connection Timed out

    Safari could not open the page “http://www.asp.net/” because the server is not responding.

    Google Chrome could not connect.

    I'll try a system restore.

  • The answer was my internet provider - Comcast.  I took my pc to a local wifi hotspot and connected fine to asp.net over AT&T's connection so I knew it wasn't my machine.  I called Comcast who said they had downloaded a patch to my modem over the weekend. They quickly dialed in and reset a switch on the modem and I was back to normal.

    Thanks Naom for your help.
