      Question Strange Routing ( not Router ) Problem

      Encountered a strange routing ( not Router ) issue today, to the site tvbinz.net

      A tracert to Google works fine, as do all the other internet operations I tried.

      C:\>tracert Google

      Tracing route to Google [216.239.59.104]
      over a maximum of 30 hops:

      1 1 ms 1 ms 1 ms 192.168.0.1
      2 554 ms 135 ms 67 ms cr2.smssf.uk.easynet.net [87.87.225.36]
      3 257 ms 416 ms 475 ms 80.238.42.97
      4 334 ms 442 ms 163 ms te0-12-0-5.er11.thlon.ov.easynet.net [89.200.130.90]
      5 * * * Request timed out.
      6 91 ms 68 ms 128 ms 64.233.175.27
      7 96 ms 100 ms 76 ms 209.85.250.216
      8 82 ms 126 ms 395 ms 64.233.174.185
      9 279 ms 267 ms 354 ms 216.239.49.126
      10 170 ms 384 ms 229 ms gv-in-f104.google.com [216.239.59.104]

      Trace complete.

      But a tracert to tvbinz.net resolves the IP correctly ( I use OpenDNS, and confirmed with a friend that the correct IP address is given ), but dies straight away.

      C:\>tracert tvbinz.net

      Tracing route to tvbinz.net [85.17.212.165]
      over a maximum of 30 hops:

      1 General failure.

      Trace complete.

      This General Failure looks a bit fatal and confusing, to say the least.

      Any ideas ?

      Ta,

      nwpsys

      It works OK for me -
      Tracing route to tvbinz.net [85.17.212.165]
      over a maximum of 30 hops:

      1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms 192.168.0.1
      2 36 ms 27 ms 28 ms cr0.esban.uk.easynet.net [87.87.251.7]
      3 25 ms 23 ms 24 ms 87.87.131.97
      4 38 ms 37 ms 37 ms be2.er11.thlon.ov.easynet.net [195.66.224.43]

      8 45 ms 44 ms 45 ms tvbinz.net [85.17.212.165]

      Trace complete.
      If you are not even getting to your router it suggests something is not quite right with your PC. Maybe a rebooot will sort it out. Are you using a Command Prompt to do the trace?

      Re: Strange Routing ( not Router ) Problem

      Thanks for the reply. Good to know it is working for someone

      Will reboot PC and then router when I get home.

      And yeah, I am using a CMD window for the tracert. Still a little curious that I can get to Google tho. It is as if my PC is blocking connections out to that specific IP. Might have to double check there is nothing funky going on with the firewall. As you rightly say, my request is not even getting to my router.

      Cheers,

      nwpsys

      Have a look in your Hosts file, if you firewall is not blocking it. If you can go to the site through your address bar, it is not blocked.
