Can't access a specific website going thru my router

by bartggc - 12/6/07 2:44 AM

3 weeks ago, suddenly I was unable to access a website (www.joedios.com) , but the rest of my internet activity remains ok.
I access the internet thru a D-Link DI707P router which connects to a broadband modem.

What I tried:
- I tried using IExplorer, Firefox and Opera from my laptop: no success.
- I tried from the other 3 computers in my network: no success.
- I tried with a direct Dial-Up connection from my computer: SUCCESS. (so the problem was either my router or my ISP)
- I called my ISP and they recommended connecting directly my computer to the modem, bypassing the router: SUCCESS. (so the problem was not the ISP, btw, the ISP tech guy could access this website without problems.)
- I called D-Link support, and the D-link rep could not access the website as well, and this was very strange. He just said he could not access so the problem could be the website, but I CAN access if I bypass the router.

Other data:
- Firmware on the router is the latest version (never updated it, but when I checked for updates, mine was a newer version!), and D-Link support confirmed this as well.
- My router is configured on Dynamic IP Address
- I have tried assigning different primary and secondary DNS addresses, even from other ISPs in the router
- I have released/renewed the IP in the CMD with the ipconfig: No Success
- I have reset the router to factory settings a couple of times doing a backup restoration first and the 2nd time starting from zero: No success.
- Tried accessing the website using the IP address instead: No success.
- A friend suggested reducing the MTU number by 50, but since my connection is Dynamic IP Address, there's no MTU option.

Any ideas in how to solve this?

Thanks!
