I currently moved into the city a few weeks ago and just got my internet up and running.

My problem is that I can not get TundraTalk.net to upload on my home computer. It figures that the only site that I give two $hits about I can’t enjoy in the comforts of my own home. My work, and the clubhouse in my community both used the same service as me, and I can access TT.net with no problems. I’ve been on the phone with tech support for hours and can not figure out what the issue is:eek: :eek:

Has anyone else had this problem; I’m like going through withdraws here! lol

It's a conspiracy against you. It's like cell phone coverage, you are in a TT dead zone. Better move.

Only reason I can think of that would block an IP would be if someone added it to the router's blocked websites list. Have you been on TT a lot and ignoring a spouse? Or maybe hogging the computer too much browsing through TT? Maybe they blocked it in the router and didn't tell you.

I have been having issues with my modem ever since I got the service. I did a tracert on the command prompt at home and everything seemed ok? At my prior house I could access TT with no problems. However I did rent the modem from Comcast, so it is a possibility that something is jacked up in it. They are bringing me a new modem tomorrow. We will see if that is the issue. I also have the tech support researching this problem.

Thankfully my girlfriend supports my Tundra habits. Conspiracy? I would not doubt it, crazier things have happened:)

Yeah I’ve restarted everything, and no such luck. Haha, I don’t know about the whole roof thing bro, my mother did not raise no fool:)
Last night I tried inserting just the IP address and it gave me the GM news site. I have a new modem coming today, so hopefully it was just a modem issue, and not a server issue.

Do you have a router? Have you tried bypassing the router and connecting directly through the modem? I had this happen to me with a website, and I couldn't access it for weeks, if not a month before I stumbled upon what cured it, and I for the life of me can't remember what it was that cured it. I think it was a virus blocking me from my most visited site, I gotta remember to stay away from the pron sites o_O

I’ve tried it all; resetting the modem/ router (they are a two in one deal), checked parental controls (I am renting the modem), inserting the IP address, deleting the cookies and site memory etc, hooking up directly to modem/ router, shutting off my firewall and lowering all my securities to nothing, no the phone with tech support for hours, and running a virus program, two add wear/ spy wear programs, defrag, and a few other things I can’t recall right now. I’m at a complete loss.

Now every time I try to access Tundratalk.net I get redirected to ask.com? So I removed the ask.com toolbar from my control panel and now it just says page cannot be displayed.
I’ve tried using my girlfriends laptop as well and get the same results. I go to work which is three miles from my home and uses the same provider and I in there like swimwear.

My next attempt is calling the Geek Squad:eek: :eek: :eek:

Get a Mac!

How's the badge removal going?
A Mac will be my next shot lol. If I keep on this site someone at work is going to notice.

This weekend I had access to a lift so I redid the undercarriage on the truck in stead. I’m starting the debagging this week. If you look at the thread “What have you done to your truck this week”, I have before and after pictures up.

Have you start on your’s yet?

I hear ya on that. It’s been hot down here in the city, and holding a heat gun is not what I really want to be doing on a 100 degree + day. I just hope that my door guards are fully adhesive and not partially clipped on… I’d hate to have holes down the sides of my truck:(

Good luck in your endeavors.
Thanks Mickey... Vote Ironman02 haha jk:)

Yeah I’m looking in my tear down manual tonight to see how they are fastened. It is a real eye sore you know. I took off my nerf bars this weekend before I started the under carriage and that helped a ton. Eventually I’m going to paint this beast orange with a 18” 20” black rim upgrade.
