Here is the list of things I tried to troubleshoot suggested by the BC's chat group


  • flush dns
  • reinstall chrome/firefox
  • change dns to open dns via IPV-4 protocol to and
  • scanned for virus (Full computer scan (3 harddrives ) no results)
  • made windows/system32/etc/drivers/hosts file read only
  • changed firefox/chrome networking preferences to "Automatically detect proxy"
  • Uninstalled VPN to school's network (Program: Cisco Anyconnect VPN client)
  • used MiniToolBox

I usually have to keep refreshing the reddit website to access it sometimes I get this page

I've also changed my Qualcom Atheros Killer Network Manager TCP settings to TCP No Delay (on) and ACK Frequency from 2 to 1


while other times I get the normal reddit page but sends me to "Connection was reset".

I can access imgur links on front page but comments will result in "Connnection was reset."


I recently mapped my school's vpn harddrive and uninstalled it if it was the cause of the problem. After mapping the harddrive, I started to have problems with the reddit website.


Here is my minitoolbox diagnostics: http://pastebin.com/SVbn9UqE


Hopefully this will be enough information to help me resolve this issue.
