    Some Pages Don't Load, Connections Time Out


    Just today, I have been having a problem connecting to some web pages. When entering some sites to the address bar, no matter the browser, it tries to connect, but eventually times out. Googling said website and using the link there works just fine. I'm still able to use just about everything else just fine, but Steam and online games are also having connection issues. I have not installed anything as of late, and full scans with both Avira and Malwarebytes show no issues. This literally started happening after I got home from work today, and not in the morning when I was using it before.

    Hi Reznos

    Not sure which browser you are using but what ever it is clear your old browsing data. If some of your sites are logging you in through retained cookies know your passwords before clearing. I would clear Cached Images and files and cookies.

    Might also suggest that you power cycle router, shut it off, count to twenty, restart.

    This issue happens with Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge. They all have the same issue.

    Power cycling the router and restarting all connected devices did not fix the issue.

    You could try these four commands. Use a Command Prompt(admin) or Powershell(admin)
    Do not key in info in brackets, there for your information.

    ipconfig /flushdns (Clear the dns cache)
    nbtstat -RR (release and refesh NetBIOS names)
    netsh int ip reset (reset ip settings)
    netsh winsock reset (Reset Winsock Catalog)

    That seems to have resolved some of the websites, but there are still some that time out, and online gaming is still impossible.

    Can I ask what possible changes have been made?

    Software / Hardware, new AV?

    What updates did Windows deliver to you? especially Drivers which are listed at bottom of update history?

    Might try disabling AV as a test.

    Might also hold shift key down and click shutdown so you get a fresh copy of Windows. While power down unplug mains from wall. Press power button for 20 secs. Plug back into wall and power up device.

    So doing those produced no results either. At this point, I'm not sure if it's something going on with my ISP or not.

    As for updates, the last drivers were Apple USB device drivers on 4/27/2018, twice, for some reason. I'm unsure if this is the cause of these issues or not. This problem is even preventing me from downloading an available update as well, even manually.

    Sorry to interrupt this thread but you could try changing DNS lookup:

    New Cloudflare 1.1.1.1 fastest, privacy-first consumer DNS service - Windows 10 Forums
    Also reset router (hard reset button on router)

    Click image for larger version.

    My DNS was set to Cloudflare's about a day prior to the incident happening. Changing to Google's DNS did not resolve the issue, so I switched back. Router has also been reset, to no success.

    Post a link to a site that you cannot connect to.
