We are talking about a new (1 week old) Windows 10 laptop.
Some websites like foobar2000.org , www.dslreports.com etc won't load and after 5-10 mins i'll get:
This site can’t be reached
The connection was reset.
The above message is on latest version of Chrome. On Edge browser (new IE) I just get more generic looking blank page. Connected to the same router the above mentioned websites work on my phone through wifi.
1. Netflix.com is another website that won't load but - Win10 has a netflix app on the start menu and I was able to use network on the same computer using that app.
2. here's list list of all that I have done (not in order) but to no avail:
a. Firewall disabled
b. Anti-virus disabled (Avast)
c. booted into safe mode with networking
d. netsh winsock reset
e. accessed problem websites by ip
f. changed dns to google dns 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206
g. assigned manual IP to my network adaptor
h. tried cabled and wifi
i. checked of proxy is set (it wasn't it's a new computer)
j. logged out of chrome and used chrome as a guest
k. checked MTU - lowered it to 1428 on my laptop and on my router (rebooted my router) - no go.
l. disabled all extension on chrome
m. netsh interface ipv4 reset - netsh interface ipv6 reset - ipconfig /flushdns
n. Disable DNS prefetching option in chrome and also cleared cache
o. Check permissions on the temp folder - gave full control to my user id
p. sfc /scannow
q. –ssl-version-max=tls1 in chrome
What i haven't done so far is extensive virus/malware scan, but it's a new pc and I do not go on uncommon websites. I'll do it if you insist.
Let me know what else can i do.
