Hi can anyone help. When trying to access certain popular webistes from my new laptop i encounter the message packard bell 404 error page not found message. The particular sites that this affects are click here and click here. when using any other computer i have no problem accessing these sites. Please help i am now tearing my hair out. I have gone to microsoft.com and only find confusing reasons and answers. Please help for my sanity. My laptop is a PB W3301 and i access the internet through a wireless connection, using window explorer.

No sites displayed on your "click here". try again so we can see what you are trying to access.

The Sites are Ntl.com and mmediaweek.co.uk

Have a look at click here

If you type in the address
click here
can you access it as this is NTL.com IP address

click here
for media week

If you can then it is a problem with your Domain Name Resolution.

Try this for mediaweek:

click here

and I think it should be ntlworld.com not ntl.com

try: click here

ntl.com is a valid site

click here

After you've tried the above, then try changing the MTU as sometimes this blocks certain sites.

Sorry i an a bit of a novice what is a MTU?

  pj123 12:43 03 Feb 2006

Thanks, De Marcus™ I didn't realise that. I have always used ntlworld.

But when I try ntl.com I also get page not found.

Just also noticed that jonjo72 is quoting mmediaweek (two m's?) or was that a typing error?

I can get into mediaweek.co.uk (1 m) no problem.
