Charter won't do shit. Called the the last two nights. Took the line off the router & stuck it in the back of the PC &'everything works. Nobody will reconfigure the router so I bought a new one & the problem is resolved!
I am also experiencing the same issues but only at my office and not at home?at home i have charter and at work verizon.I will try the router trick but i doubt thats it because every other website is normal,only issue is BD.Sometimes it will come up after a few minutes and sometimes its a blank white page but even if it comes up you cannot navigate around.
This is exactly my take as well. Since I'm so clueless, somebody explain to me how this could be a router or other issue mentioned when it ONLY is happening on BD.
I'm not blasting BD at all here, but at the same time I'm really wondering if I am the one who really has a clue here, because nearly every time in the past that I tried to inform BD that there was a problem that was specifically happening ONLY here on BD and no other site, I always seem to receive the same sort of response... ya know "Oh you're clueless" or "it's something else, but it's not BD"....... and then guess what..... either days or weeks later (maybe a month) there will suddenly be a post stating that they are shutting down for a day, or that they are going to do a format change. I dunno man, but this has honestly happened more times than I can even remember now. I'm always just trying to bring it up in hopes it helps the powers that be are aware of it and can fix it before it turns even more ugly than it is....... that's all I am trying to do.
So somebody tell me (although once I submit this reply it will probably take me days to possibly view this again) just how can it be router or any of the other mentioned problems if it is only happening on this site?? School me, cause i'm listening.
Post up your trace routes (on the effected PC's) to www.bdoutdoors.com along with a -n 20 ping's. I keep hounding our host and they keep saying it's not on our network or our software and that it's out of our control.
One of our Florida guys was having trouble as well. He eliminated his router and plugged right to the computer and the forums worked perfect. This has been one of the most frustrating things I have ever seen with websites. Not one single thing has worked to fix all and the coders and I have not been able to replicate this problem even with using proxy's in the effected areas.
I've got the same problem. Phone AT&T - no problem. Comcast...doesn't work. I asked comcast to reset my IP and they said they can't but if you leave your modem unplugged for a few hours, then it should reassign. I'm leaving it unhooked overnight and will let you know if it reassigns the IP and the website performance.
BTW I've tried the iphone through comcast...same problem. I also did win7 vs Mac, IE, Mozilla (mac + PC), and Safari. If it's going through my comcast ip, it doesn't work.
I am glad I wasn't the only one all of a sudden having problems! I was able to get in but the scree was of center and could only read 3/4 of the post if they had pictures attached? I addressed the problem and instead I just got an ass chewing because I wrote poorly! 30 replies crapping and not one person addressed yes there has been a problem going on. Since then mine is working fine again.
Works from work. Not from home. 3 different computers at home with different operating systems. Cache cleared. Rest of the world still works including all other forums. Telling users it is an ID ten T error is rather irritating. I saw this thread when it started but it still worked for me till about 1 week ago. Since I can hit the main page with everyone else and the sub pages time out or error out I would suspect it is some sort of DNS cache error or forwarding error on the server, especially with the randomness of it.
