Windows 7: Can't access a website

Trying to revive this thread as I'm facing the exact same problem! Can't seem to access websites on a particular server (Windows Network Diagnostics gives me "IP is online but isn't responding to connection attempts"). Vili and Frogitts, have you both found a workable solution to the problem?

Solution found

Even I was suffering from same problem, finally after lots of hard work I found one solution, hope that it may work for you guys also:
#1: go to run and type 'notepad' and 'run as administrator'
#2. on notepad go to file and open C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
#3. just delete the website entry [which one is not opening/logging in your internet explorer or firefox.] Delete only the 'ip address and the webpage address', and leave all others untouched.
#save the host file.
#done.

now try to open the blocked webpage, I'm sure it will open.


p.s.: If the blocked webpage address in not in your host file then this step may not work.

I am having this same issue - I just downloaded McAfee Total Protection and can only get access if I turn the firewall off.

cannot access some websites

I had the same problem on an Acer Aspire with pre-installed Windows 7 Home Prem.
Drove me nuts until I updated the driver for the ethernet card.
That resolved it

imran1102:
Sounds like your problem is related to your DNS. Try to use Google DNS instead:
Configure your network settings to use the IP addresses 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 as your DNS servers

Windows 8.1
 
 

I know this is old, but I'm suffering from the same issue, although there's two different issues. Firstly, I'm running on Windows 8.1 (reason why Im on a Windows 7 Forum is simply because i typed the "isn't responding to our connection attempts" on Google and it brought me here.). Secondly, I only have the problem from 1 AM to 8PM (if it matters, I'm PT). From 8PM to midnight, the internet works perfectly, which really dosen't makes any sense. It might have to do with how my router works or its current settings, but only recently it has been an issue.
