Can't load my own ISP's web page

Pooh BearJune 20, 2013

I'm new to Windows 7 so I'll probably have a lot more questions.

I can load any other page except the home page of my ISP.
All it does is time out. According to Down For Everyone or Just For Me it is working.
So I guess the problem is with my end.
I also can't send mail thru my ISP. But that may be a problem with my mail settings. If I could load my ISP page I could see what settings to use.

How do I troubleshoot this problem.

Why wouldn't you contact your ISP's tech support straight away?

I plan on calling them if no one here can solve it.
I thought I'd try here first.

I can connect from other locations.
Just not my LAN.

Flush the browser cache and do the ipconfig /flushDns

Nope, didn't work.
None of the computers here at my house will connect to
I can connect from the house next door using dialup.

After you resolve this issue, I strongly urge you to set up an email account separate from your ISP, such as Gmail, Yahoo, or Hotmail. I've probably changed ISPs a half dozen times in 20 years and have always been glad that my email wasn't tethered to my ISP account. Having an independent account means you never have any email hassles if you change ISPs or if your present one goes out of business.

I have a Gmail account. My ISP is the local telephone Co-op.
I don't think they are going out of business anytime soon.

Glad to hear that. The phone company may not go out of business, but they sometimes merge, At any rate, just curious...why were you trying to send email through your ISP, then?

I have one of my email accounts with my ISP.
I currently can receive mail but not send it.
I am sure the problem is with a setting.
I need to get to the ISP website to look up the proper settings.

My phone company is a co-op. I don't think they merge with anyone.
They have been here to stay since 1953. Locally owned.

I did manage to connect using a proxy service. (link below)

Wow, the page just loaded. I tried it and it loaded.
Wonder why it wouldn't load before.
