Unable to ping certain websites - Page 2

How do you change your DNS server? Go to Control Panel -> Network and Internet -> Network Connections, select my wireless NIC I'm using and set the DNS there for IPv4? Not having any effect.

It wont solve your issue. If you connect your modem straight to the pc you will see your outside ip and dns addy. So changing them wont help.

your being blocked. Disable your firewall and if you got peerblock you need to uninstall it and try again. Otherwise try that online proxy site i provided above and see if you can reach the site through it

not all isp.s will block or redirect your own dns server.
Try a dns lookup on the sites. I.e. nslookup google.com and see if it gives you an ip, if not its 100%your dns. You can also test if your isp blocks your own dns by changing it and seeing if the lookup responds from the dns you put in.
And for the hell of it try a web proxy and see if you can connect to the site (I do this to make sure the site isn't down and if its just me having the problem)

What the heck is going on here. Is the address it is getting from the DNS for animedreaming.tv wrong or something?

i just went to the site it opened up fine so the site is up.

Did you check if the modem is plugged into your wan port not lan?

Try the following

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset [log_file_name]

Note: the log_file_name needs to be specified, e.g. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reboot

Back to cmd prompt

test it. if not working enter the following

route print

Copy and paste it here

This output shows that you are correctly using google's DNS server to resolve a connection. It also is showing that the connection is being resolved to the correct IP address (animedreaming.tv is running on a server at IP address 109.236.81.183).

Who is your isp? They could be explicitly blocking traffic to that IP address, which would explain why your pings aren't getting through, but the nslookups are working correctly.

Your DNS should be set on your router, not your Computer. Even then normally your ISP's DNS is normally utilized.

If you feel you are being blocked by your ISP then just do a search on google for public DNS. Google's DNS or OpenDNS.com will both server your purposes. If you must set DNS on your computer vs doing it the correct way of appliing it on your router, then it is set in your network connections area.


Please do not spread misinformation.


Also you may not be able to ping every website out there. If they have a firewall in front and disable ICMP you will never get a ping to their web server.

Some people should learn more before talking out their ass, and spreading misinformation.


Also you may not be able to ping every website out there. If they have a firewall in front and disable ICMP you will never get a ping to their web server.
He's already using google's public DNS, you'd know this if you looked at what has been posted.

Maybe you should re-read what I stated. DO NOT PUT DNS SETTINGS ON THE COMPUTER, SET THEM ON THE ROUTER.

Also you may not be able to ping every website out there. If they have a firewall in front and disable ICMP you will never get a ping to their web server.
