does anyone out there use windows 8.1???
« on: April 09, 2014, 06:15:19 PM »
Fortunately for me the other comps can connect to our forums but I have this 8.1 that connects everywhere but not here and another site

I have no clue where to look to see why.

Let me guess the most recent patch from Microsoft is buggering the website and IE 11 I  think.
it just logged me  out and log me in at the same time O.o Had to reset my password to get back on.

I found this talking about  an error like  the one you are describing.

I have no clue about IE 11

I do not use it unless I has to but FF, SeaMonkey, google,and even IE will not let me get to the sites on our server nor another site I go to.

Claims the connection has timed out.

Have deleted cache, cookies, bookmarks for us and hers, cleared dns fro comp restarted comp and still our stuff won't let me in...but I can get to other places---just not ours and hers

the other comps have no problems just the 8.1

I have 8.1 on my laptop which I hardly ever use because IT IS 8.1.   Had a heck of a time also with it but beat it up until it worked. 

Still hate it...but it works.

I can use IE 11 and connect to the site using it as well as using FF and Chrome. The key to Windows 8.1 is to forget how you are use to setting up your computer and not to use settings you once had since they will no longer work with 8.1 the way they use to.

found this in the web with my trusty-for now--mac

One of the problems experienced by Windows 8.1 users concerns the installed browsers, with several consumers reporting that Firefox, IE, and Chrome fail to load pages after deploying the OS update.
 
 While this problem has also been reported in Windows 8.1 Preview, it seems like it’s affecting the stable version of the operating system too.

 
 A number of posts published on Microsoft’s Community forums reveal that IE, Firefox, and Chrome don’t load any pages with a working Internet connection. The operating system then launches the connection problem assistant, but no different is made whatsoever.
 
Microsoft is yet to release a workaround for this problem, but it’s most likely caused by compatibility issues, so expect future updates to address and fix the bugs.
 
 It’s not yet clear if this issue is related to the hardware configuration of the computers running Windows 8.1.
Fear not,
You are never alone,
I am there to comfort and guide you...
Always.

Have You thought about a clean install of another browser and see if that works as so far the only help MS is offering is claiming it is the websites fault.

It was working until they went to the pole and took care of business out there. Then when the net started working I could go everywhere except here and pfd

Wow...how odd is that.  I'm almost tempted to wipe the laptop clean and go back to 8.0....at least that worked better...  I still have issues but not with connectivity.  Some of my programs no longer work and they are the ones I use all of the time.  I think I just talked myself into doing it LOLOL....

welllll weird thing is now the rest of the sites are loading slow or not refreshing on the laptop with 8.1 but my daughters with xp is not wanting to connect at all.

she reinstalled the software to her usb adapter and  now things are loading slow.

I tried calling service provider and kept getting diconnected and right now got thru to a human and he very quickly said they are experiencing difficulties and are not able to assist anyone, sorry goddbye.

he was racing  to get that all out before he got disconnected so it may not be my comp only.

Maybe try a proxy service and see if it is something you can move around?
