I can't access certain websites from either my MacBook nor from my iPhone when connected to my WiFi network, but the same websites can be reached from a Windows computer connected on the same network. Three days ago everything worked, but then it stopped working.

This is what happens when I try to ping it:

PING ilpost.it (151.1.175.113): 56 data bytes
Request timeout for icmp_seq 0
Request timeout for icmp_seq 1
Request timeout for icmp_seq 2
...

And when I try to traceroute it:

host-001:~ j$ traceroute www.ilpost.it
traceroute to ilpost.it (151.1.175.113), 64 hops max, 52 byte packets
 1  vodafonedslrouter (192.168.1.1)  2.965 ms  0.743 ms  0.745 ms

I've flushed my DNS cache but nothing changed.

This is quite dramatic as it seems to depend on 85.205.25.174 hop and I don't know how to avoid it.

  • From where do you try to access theses domains? – user18805 Sep 28 '12 at 8:29

    Maybe check to see that the Mac has the same DNS servers as the Windows box. – robmathers Sep 28 '12 at 14:29
  • I'd check the DNS too, but what websites in particular can't you reach? Is your hosts file to blame? – segiddins Oct 3 '12 at 14:39

Ping (ICMP) packets can be blocked though you are still able to access the website.

Telnet to port 80 is actually a better test to verify whether you are able to connect or not.

Over here connecting to http://ilpost.it results in no problem:

$ telnet ilpost.it 80                                                                   (28-09-12 13:58)
Trying 151.1.175.113...
Connected to ilpost.it.

Although ilpost.it redirects to http://www.ilpost.it/
