    Strange issue.. Can’t access site via Wifi..only w vpn or cabled connection

    by nicke2021 ·

    This began happening about a week ago. Intermittently my web site drops. It’s up and then it’s down.
    Now I can see the site but only if I access thru my VPN. Also can’t view my site over my wi-fi. Only a cabled connection. This is mostly happening at my local office only. I can access the site elsewhere, most of the time.

    I have been in web dev for over 20 years and this one is a very strange issue.
    The error I receive in Google Chrome is: DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN

    There’s nothing controversial about the site so no reason to be blocked.

    So far I have tried:
    1.) Flushing my dns
    2.) I installed two different new routers and 1 new modem (cable internet)
    3.) I tried Ipconfig release & restore in cmd
    4.) Multiple reboots
    5.) Reinstalling drivers on my network cards
    6.) Calling my hosting provider and updating my dns settings. ()This is the only real change in years.)
    7.) Calling my ISP to see if they were blocking my site. They said they don’t block sites.
    8.) Emptied cache on all browsers
    9.) Tried to view on my phone, same deal. Have to use my phone network to view. Cant see the site if my wireless connection is active.
    10.) Disabled Virus scanner and firewalls
    11.) Changed my DNS server on my connection to Google instead of “obtain DNS address automatically.” Still no.
    12.) I can view the site on public wireless but not my own.
    13.) I have edited my local hosts file to include the ip and domain. Still no.

    Please let me know what you think I should try now. Thank you!
