Odd problem accessing this site
Last Tuesday evening, from home, I lost access to this site. I got timeout messages. I tried pinging which also timed out. I have 3 computers on my home net, and none of them could access this site, even though they have different OS.
Then I tried connecting a PC directly to the cable modem, bypassing the router. Success! This narrows it down to the router.
I tried flushing the DNS, a hard reset, upgrading the firmware, checking all settings, etc. but no luck.
So, I pulled the router and installed a backup router. Success again! All is well. (The first router is a Linksys WRT54GS, the second a WRT54GL).
That is, it worked for one day at least. Then this router did the same thing. Of the sites I visit, only this site was not accessible. No response to a ping.
I also tried adjusting the MTU size from 1500, 1492 and on down, but no luck there. did the same things as I did before, no luck.
So I broke down and bought another router. It is working, for now, (which is why I can post this) but I would still like to figure out what is happening.
Some have suggested it is a problem with the MTU negotiation but changing the size didn't work.
My question is, is there anything that changed on the server side, on or about last Monday 6/28 that might confuse a router?
