Free Republic Will Not Load on PC just MAC

Posted on 06/21/2010 10:36:47 AM PDT by honestabe010

Is anyone else having a problem getting on Free Republic or know why Free Republic will not load on my PC. I can only get to the website on my MAC. Everything other website working fine on my PC. Anyone who is experiencing difficulty is probably not able to get on to respond so this may be futile. But if anyone has an idea let know.

Works fine on my Redhat Linux Box.

You might try the numeric IP address:

209.157.64.200

I haven’t checked for the past two hours or so, but I was unable to connect all morning. It’s not just you! :)
I had trouble yesterday afternoon, as well.

It was having serious issues yesterday. I finally got it to load just by letting my browser alone. Took a minute or so.

Seems fine today though.

It’s routing tables. The change of IP address has to populate the tables. Could be 16-24 hours.

My PC with old fashioned dial-up connection is working fine.

Good luck figuring out your trouble. It’s not good when the FR site won’t work.

Cheers!

Maybe it’s cause you are using the term “MAC” ... Mac or Apple!

That happens to me on one of our computers. Sometimes loading the ip addy works. Sometimes it doesn’t. I have done a work-around by using a anonymous proxy service such as “hidemyass.com”. Granted, it seems that most people that use such services look at porn. Further, there are annoying advertisements.

But it worked for me when I couldn’t reach FR.

You need to clean out your PC’s Ethernet cable. Disconnect it from both the computer and your router/modem, then swing each end of the cable over your head, lasso-style, so the centrifugal force will dislodge the clogged electrons.

I'm not sure that's the only problem. I've given the new IP to those at altfreerepublic who can't access FR. They still can't connect using 209.157.64.200.

That wasn’t nice. You know that won’t work. FIRST you have to go to the electric box and shut down your power for a minimum of two days...

I was wondering why the CEO of the fortune 50 company I work for was doing this when I went by his office just now.

Now I know

Another suggestion: you may need to clear your DNS cache. DNS is the service that translates the name (freerepublic.com) into a number (209.157.64.200). Do this:

Start->Run...

type: cmd and press Enter.

You got the black little box, right?

type: ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter.

You should receive a response like:

Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.

You should be good.
