Hi. I can access any site on the web but the Wikipedia. On Thursday I was doing an edit. Just as I clicked "Save" the page timed out. Since then I haven't been able to connect. No matter what browser or device I use it keeps timing out.I think it might be a networking issue since I cant connect to it with either my PC or tablet and with different browsers. When I tried pinging it it kept saying "Connection timed out". Apparently its sending out the wrong IP number. It says 208.80.154.224 when apparently the number is 91.198.174.192. When I go directly to that IP number on my browser it says "This domain points to a Wikimedia Foundation server, but is not configured on this server." I was wondering how I can fix this problem so I can access the Wikipedia instead of "Cant connect" or "site has timed out" issues.

Try changing your DNS on your computer to 4.2.2.2 (Level 3 DNS server). See if the page loads. Also note the IP address you gave (208.80.154.224) is the correct IP address for their web server/load balancer.
