Blocking of certain websites intermittently

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


Yes I have another problem! It is not an urgent matter at the moment, but it would be nice to know what the cause is of such a random issue!


Yesterday for some reason certain websites that I access pretty much every day were unable to view. This happened intermittently throughout the day, but today, so far it has been fine. I will add some details below that could maybe help;


- An error message appeared saying "No data received".

- Did ping tests and they were fine.

- It was like this on and off all day, but there were other websites that were fine.

- was using Google chrome.

- Checked with the firewall provider and they found no issues.

- Checked with the broadband company and they too had said there were no issues. Although, the broadband company could be lying so they reduces the chances of getting a bad reputation!


Anyone got any ideas on what the issue could of been?


Thanks in advance!

If the issue persists, then you'll know that it is not browser based.

Thanks Y Kawika!


So far it has not happened since yesterday and nothing has been done on this end. I am putting it down to the internet provider trying to cover up faults!


Best regards,
