Windows 7: Website is online but is not responding to connection attempts.

08 Nov 2016   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Website is online but is not responding to connection attempts.

Okay, after fighting with this for the last two weeks, I give up. I three computers losing connectivity at seemingly random times. Sometimes it's just one, sometimes all of them, and it happens several times a day with the one I use most. Networking troubleshooter gives me the error in the thread title.

All three are wireless. (I know it's not ideal for testing, but I live in the country and have limited internet options, so there is no way to test a wired connection.)

My phone can connect fine, and never has any problems with the wi-fi.

Even when a pc has trouble connecting, I can still ping sites from both ip and site names. I can also still see the other pcs in the network and share files between them (even if one is offline, and the other can connect)

I'll answer anything else I can. I'm usually pretty decent with everything non-networking. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
