View Full Version : one website will not load

04-12-2008, 04:31 PM
I cannot get to adobe.com for some reason over the past week. I get the error message: "The server at www.adobe.com is taking too long to respond." This is now for a week.

Pinging adobe.com & its IP both come back successfully. I can get to any other website in the universe it seems. I have disabled Zone Alarm, Norton, & SpySweeper with no success. I have tried 2 computers, XP & Vista platforms, both give the same error message. I've tried Firefox & Explorer & Opera browsers.

I think it must be my ADSL modem (Dynalink RTA230, using Telecom Xtra Broadband), because I can successfully get to adobe.com from another router which is hooked up here to another phone line (& hooked up to another computer). I'm praying I don't have to reset my modem because setting it up in the first place was a matter of luck (it was over my head).

But I need to access the adobe website from my computer so that I can install the software which requires confirmation of my registration serial number online in order to install itself.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, tasha

If you have to do a reset setting up Dynalink modems using the router IP address in a web browser is very easy.
Most settings are correct by default and all you should have to do is enter your Telecom broadband username and password.

Just a wild guess but check your Host file to see if anything is out of order in there.

Thanks to both FoxyMX & Safari for tips about hosts file & resetting my router. Unfortunately, neither worked. My host file is clean and I reset my router twice. I still cannot get to adobe.com website. ??

Is there anything else that comes to mind? Thanks again for everyone's help!

Is your firewall blocking it for some reason

Success! I updated the firmware of the router and now I can get onto the adobe website to my hearts content! Yippee!
