Cannot connect to Facebook

Post by kruby247 on Fri 20 Nov 2009, 8:57 am

Up until 6pm yesterday, I was able to connect to Facebook on both my desktop and laptop. I left for a bit and when I came home at 9pm, I couldn't connect from either...and still can't. In Firefox, I am getting the cannot connect "The server at www.facebook.com is taking too long to respond." error page. In IE8, I am getting a connection failed error page that gives me a diagnose problem button. The diagnostic shows nothing wrong with my internet connection. I have no problems at all in connecting to any other pages, only Facebook. So, while at the local library today, I tried to go to Facebook and had no problem going to the site and logging in. Thus, I know it is a problem with my home network. Could you please help?

Yes, still down. My Java and Adobe had the latest updates and I've cleared my cookies and double-checked the firewall settings to be sure it wasn't suddenly blocking it for any reason. I am able to connect to Facebook on library and the neighbors' computers...just not my own. Thank you.

I am having this EXACT SAME PROBLEM, and it's only with Facebook. Further, ANY webpage I try to visit with the word "Facebook" in it causes the "diagnose connection error" in IE8 and the "Error 101" in Chrome (when I use any search engine with Facebook in it attempting to finding info on this problem). Have you resolved this problem? How did you do it???? Thanks.

I did resolve this. It's a little embarrassing to admit, but I had to reset my router. Tried everything I could think of, except that. A few days later I couldn't connect to anything and finally did the obvious and reset everything. Working like a dream now. Strange but true, every time it needs reset, Facebook will be the only thing I can't connect too:)
