So lately, I have problems connecting to several sites.
Several topics are out there, but I didn't manage to find any solution, so I'll ask again
I noticed this because I couldn't connect battlefield bad company 2 to the ea servers (to sign in).
now, no need to panic I thought, things like that happen, but it has been going on for a week, so I started to investigate.
While trying some EA domains I found that Support Home Page
wouldn't load up on my windows 7 64bit (sp1).
now this site does load up on my dual-booted linux... as well as on any other pc in my network. In fact, I even tried my mobile network on windows 7 but it simply wont load!
So I went trough this list of things I tried out:
- Removing ESET internet security (nod32) using the special uninstall tool
- Turning off windows firewall
- Resetting windows firewall to defaults
- flushing dns cache
- reset host file
- renew LAN connection
- reset tcp/ip stack
- microsoft fix it firewall repair tool
- Several network solution finders in windows
- Direct connection to my modem
- Restore windows to earliest point I could find
now I dunno... but that seems to sum up all possible fixes I'm aware of...
Nothing seems to help.
It's a fresh installed windows 7 (just a month old), and apart from this thing it runs fine.
"Source (customersupport.ea.com) is online, but doesn't respond to connection attempts".
Well windows is right about that...
I can resolve (nslookup) the address from cmd, I can even ping it successfully!
For now I installed a squid proxy server on my linux router to connect to every website, but that still doesn't fix my game.
More-over, WHAT could this be? because I'm completely in the dark here
and I rarely say that
