Some sites ok, some not on wireless .......

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Nondisclosure007, Jun 22, 2009.

  1. but all sites ok wired.

    Let me explain. I'll use whitehouse.gov and jcp.com for examples.
    When I'm hooked up on a wired connection on my home network, I can get
    to these sites w/ no problem. When I'm hooked up wirelessly, I
    timeout trying to get to these sites (other sites, like cnn.com and
    google.com, work on both connections).

    Same home network. I've tried this on 3 different brand of laptops;
    same exact issue on all three.

    OS's are all Windows Vista Ultimate (2 are 32bit ad 1 is 64bit).

    So I'm at a loss here. I'm open to try any ideas!

    Thanks in advance.
    -Michael.

    It's possibly a MTU issue. Read this for a description of why some web
    sites work and others don't. You might be able to fix the problem by
    adjusting the MTU on the wireless interface (with DrTCP)
