Problems connecting to orchidgeeks.com

Hi, so I'm having a strange probem. I thought maybe I was ip banned because I havent been able to connect to the server on any computer or on my phone at home. However, I am typing this on my phone using 3G, not my wireless, so I guess thats not it, lol! I cleared my cache, deleted cookies, etc. Does anyone have any idea what I can do to fix this issue? This is the only website that I cant connect too, so I'm out of ideas.

Thanks Katrina.

I just went through all my security settings and antivirus software and got nothing. It still looks like the ip is being blocked. Can anyone check on the admin side of things? Should I pm Fred or someone else?

Yes, if anyone is still having trouble...PM Fred. Explain what's happening in your PM and he'll be able to forward it along to the proper people in order to get it fixed.

Katrina, I pm'ed Fred weeks ago. I haven't gotten a response. I also tried the "contact us" option at the bottom of the page. I don't know what else to do at this point.

I had replied to your question with the contact us
there is no issue with your ip address
I just looked at all the blocked ip address to all of your ip address and none are blocked at this end.

Thanks Fred. I still don't know why I wouldn't be able to connect to the server then? I'm stuck with using the 3G on my phone as I still can't view the site at all from my home connection. The problem I had pm'ed you about.

Hi again Fred. I tried to ping the site and still got "Request timed out." x4. So I tried one of the free proxy sites online and can view the site just fine. So what else could this mean if it's not my ip being blocked? I can change whatever I need to on my end, I just don't know what I can do. This is the strangest problem I've ever had!

I would suggest contacting your Internet provider. There may be a routing anomoly within their network. They will probably ask you to supply a traceroute, which you can obtain in a windows command window. The windows command is tracert, followed by a space and then the hostname or IP address you are trying to reach.

Thank you jayfar! I really appreciate your help. I will call and see if they can fix it. Ugh, I had really hoped it had nothing to do with Cablevision, they're awful at troubleshooting anything over the phone.

we to be honest as I can see you have changed your ip address a few times you could try that again turn off the pc and the moden for about 20 seconds plug the moden back in then turn on your pc see how that goes

Thanks Fred. Powercycled everything 1st as I'd feel real silly if it was such a simple fix. My ip keeps changing as I'm using my phone or one of the free anonymous proxy websites as a temporary workaround to still use orchidgeeks in the mean time until I can fix the problem, as it's only my home ip that wont connect. What's really pissing me off is that it's just this website. Here and reddit are my #1 procrastination/ break from work sites, haha.

I just wanted to update this thread to say Thank You to everyone who tried to help. I ended up having to call Cablevision and it turns out that my router was stopping this site....for no good reason, so crazy! I talked to a customer service rep that had actually dealt with the same problem twice before and both times it was the person's router. A rarity, but apparently it happens!

Good for happy endings sometimes if you change browsers it will also help if you have difficulties getting into a certain site...sometimes links just go a tad wonky (facebook is a realllll good example LOL)
