Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.livefish.com.au.

* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments.

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I am at a loss. I have followed empty cache, and every fixup I could find and I still cannot access this one solitary website which went down a few days ago.
I am told the website is online now and is being accessed by other website users.
Not even my old pc can access it.
All other sites and applications do load just fine.
My IE cannot find it either.

I am still unable to connect.
I get visits from the http:www.livefish.com.au forumites in other fishy chatrooms saying they are online at livefish and they miss me.
You used to be able adjust the ip address on the old windows program with ipconfig somehow but with this new windows7 I don't seem to be able to find where it is.

What browser do you use?
Did you try another browser?
Can you connect using numeric address: http:\\112.140.180.178

Genuinely bizarre. I cannot access the site using the numeric address on internet explorer either. Hope it doesn't happen with any more sites. I am a fishy forum junkie lol.

Live fish.com works fine in Firefox. Like Broni has asked. Have you tired another browser and which one does it not work in.

It does not work in either browser on my pc. IE or Firefox.
It will not load on my old pc either and its still WINXP and IE.
I have a Billion router linking both pcs but I didn't install it and I have no idea where to go to even look at its settings.

Go Start>Run (Start search in Vista), type in:
cmd
Click OK (in Vista, while holding CTRL, and SHIFT, press Enter).

In Command Prompt window, type in following commands, and hit Enter after each one:
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
net stop "dns client"
net start "dns client"


Turn off computer. Disconnect router, and modem from power source for 1 minute. At the same time disconnect ethernet cable as well.
Reconnect everything.
Restart computer.

If the above doesn't work...

Turn the computer off.

On your router, you'll find a pinhole marked "Reset".
Keep pushing the hole, using a pencil, or a paperclip until all lights briefly come off and on.
Restart computer.
