Are you mischaracterizing what you are doing? I see www.nbc.com
is an alias of a Akamai server:

<nslookup>
Non-authoritative answer:
Name: a1669.g.akamai.net
Addresses: 216.58.96.40, 216.58.96.39
Aliases: www.nbc.com, www.nbc.com.edgesuite.net
</nslookup>


That says nothing about the domain name or even guarantee that
the domain name has an IP address. Apparently it does but it doesn't
accept ICMP packets. OTOH server www.nbc.com does work
the way you are describing:

<cmd_output OS="XPsp2">
F:\>ping -n 1 nbc.com

Pinging nbc.com [64.210.192.67] with 32 bytes of data:

Request timed out.

Ping statistics for 64.210.192.67:
Packets: Sent = 1, Received = 0, Lost = 1 (100% loss),

F:\>ping -n 1 www.nbc.com

Pinging a1669.g.akamai.net [216.58.96.40] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 216.58.96.40: bytes=32 time=32ms TTL=62
</cmd_output>

guess that's not the problem. Thank for the help. I still don;t understand
why I can not connect to the nbc.com website.
1-I have used IE with Add-ons mode and had the same issue
2-I have removed IE7 and had the same problem with IE6.
3-I have reinstalled IE7 according to Sandi's Installation Tips.
4-I have reset IE7
5-I have updated and scanned my computer using AVG, ad-adware 2007, and
window defender.
6- I also tryed but instructions below but it didn;t help.
6.1. Disable your anti-virus application, any real-time protection provided by
an anti-spyware application (except for Windows Defender; includes Spybot
Tea Timer, SpySweeper Guards, AVG AS guard.exe, etc.), disable any
third-party firewall AND enable the Windows Firewall.
6.2. Uninstall "Security Update for Windows Internet Explorer 7 (KB942615)"
via Add/Remove Programs (make sure Show Updates box is checked at top right)
and reboot.
6.3. Re-do #1 above.
6.4. Go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and install any Critical Updates
offered. If "Root Certificates" update is listed in the Optional Updates
category, you might install it, too, to take full advantage of IE7's
additional security.
6.5. Reboot > Make sure everything in #1 above is enabled again and, if
applicable, disable the Windows Firewall and enable your third-party
firewall.

any sujuestions? This problem is very frustrating!!!
It seems so simple but I just don;t understand.

Regards,
Transmito

Why? What happens when you test?




Please be more precise. I already showed you that nbc.com and www.nbc.com
are different addresses but since www.nbc.com is the only one which is an alias
for an akamai server I suspect it is www.nbc.com which is giving you your
problem symptom. Furthermore, especially when you are having problems connecting,
you should be trying *only* full URL, e.g. server name with protocol prefix.

So, the only thing that is worth discussing is what you see when you try the following,
either by using it as a link or by copying it in your Address bar:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

None of what you have listed as having tried addresses those points.

If you can't prove that you have connectivity to a particular server and port
(e.g. using telnet 80 or a different browser) anything you do using the hypothesis
that something about your browser is causing your symptom could be a waste of time.

Robert,
I just installed firefox and I was able to view http://www.yqcomputer.com/
without a problem then I confirmed that IE gives me a "Internet Explorer
cannot display the webpage" error when going to http://www.yqcomputer.com/ .

Then you should try the same test that the OP has done
with the same careful attention to details.

The fact that a different browser can connect to the problem site
has ruled out the most common case of a DNS problem with it.
Notice also, the importance to use a full URL when testing the symptom.
Using shorthand for it obscures the real problem and leads to other possible
explanations for the symptom.

Now I would suggest a trace of the differences for each use of the two
different browsers. It's possible that the site redirects to different main
servers based on the different User-Agent strings involved. Etc.
Using a proxy tracer such as Fiddler2 may be sufficient to get more information.
Otherwise you might have to resort to a full TCP packet trace,
using tools such as netcap and Ethereal.

Another possibility which such tracing might expose is errors in surreptitious
services provided by spyware. However, depending on how sophisticated
such services might be you also could find that the tracing would act as a deterrent
of such activity (e.g. in order to avoid detection) and thus act as a workaround
for the symptom. Etc.

y problem is that with a lot of sites I am able to display the webpage but
parts of the "IE can not...." message are shown. It looks like the first
response is the message and then the webpage is displayed but superimposed on
the message. Any cure for this?

On my home wireless network I am also not able to connect to www.nbc.com but
my wife can. We are both running IE7 - she has XP, I am running Vista. I was
able to connect to www.nbc.com until about 2 weeks ago - I don't know that it
coincded with an auto update but that seems plausible. btw, auto updates are
enabled for both computers so we each have the most recent updates.

Unless you refer to all the accumulated details in this thread your "Me too!" post
may just confuse things. Try creating your own thread with your own details.

BTW it may be better posting or cross-posting in Vista's Networking NG
if your OS is the only perceived difference, especially if unlike the OP (transmito)
you cannot connect successfully using another browser either.
