pagead2.googlesyndication.com


Just thought you would like to know that the url in subject was preventing me from browsing the forums....

I can't even ping that url, from 2 different locations, home and work....

I now have no problems becuase I set its ip to 0.0.0.0 in my /etc/hosts file......

Maybe, i'm the only one with this problem, but I don't think so 'cuase it didn't work from 2 locations......

No problems for me. What happens or what is the result from a trace route to the site?

I get unkown host... could be a prob with Comcast's DNS, but I can get to other url's.....

and I commented out my hosts file before traceroute....

It was keeping me from the forums becuase it would hang my browsers... I could get to the home page no prob, but anything else and I would stall out becuase it was resolving the url....

If your getting unknown host, it could and most likely be a problem with your ISP's DNS servers or the way its getting routed to the google syndicate pages, which are the ads on the site here.

I figured it was the ads, but why would only one site be messed up...

Never mind, I just tested google/linux and that isn't working either...

I guess I need to ask Comcast for a rebate....

thanks

If its a routing issue from his location, which I believe it would be, making his own DNS won't do anything for him. Not everything is a direct connection to each site
