Page not found, but works if I change my IP address, it’s the only site I can’t access

This is an odd situation. I have a Netgear router/firewall, internal address: All the PC's on the network have as address. Every web site I go to comes up except one. It's consistent across all PC's. If I change the IP address to anything other than a, I can still go to all sites and the previously inaccessible site. I've rebooted the router, used ipconfig /flushdns on the PC's, but no luck. What's odd is that when I can't access the site, I can do an nslookup and it returns the correct address. I've checked netmasks, it's correct. I am so flummoxed by this. Any thoughts

    I know this is not really related to your router, but are you using something like Zone Alarm? I know it's odd, but I've had some VERY odd problems with that program in the past, that would only affect certain sites/programs from functioning correctly.

    Your problem is definitely interesting to say the least. Most consumer broadband modems/routers are simple devices such that if you changed the IP address of your client computer, it will not be able to communicate with the modem/router, unless it is capable of routing between internal subnets. In addition to providing the name of the site that comes up, please specify the exact error message.

    Maybe this website blocks the geographic location you are coming from. As others have stated, this is a strange problem and more information is needed to assist. Could there be a port blocking issue? Maybe this website uses a port other than 80 or 443 for access.

    If I were to start a blog I hope I'd be able to provide a post half as enlightened and insightful as this one. Keep it up!
