    Can't connect with home wifi network

    Help! I cannot connect to hammock forums on my home Wi-Fi network with either my home computer or my iPhone. I can connect using my 3G connection with iPhone. No problem. I have rebooted both the network and the computer numerous times. I have even tried To get to hammock forums through a Google link. But I just keep getting the message "server taking too long to respond". I just thought that hammock forums has been down for a day or two, until I realized I was able to connect through 3G. But I just can't get there on my home Wi-Fi network. By the way, I can connect to every other website that I have tried with no problem on my home Wi-Fi network. And I'm using the same address from my drop-down address bar that I use every day. And just to doublecheck that, like I said, I even tried going through a Google link.

    Any ideas?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    suspicious

    Sounds like your wife added it to the blocked sites on your router, possibly to improve productivity?

    I was wondering the same thing about it being blocked.

    Unless you've customized settings on the router, find a paperclip or tiny finger and find the tiny or recessed reset button back to factory defaults.

    It is possible for there to have been a change. I never had a problem with a Belkin router (boo, bad, cheap, bronx cheers) until a new nook wouldn't see it. (Amazing, how fast a Nook can connect and log on.)

    now that's funny but maybe true! I'll try some other recommendations , including the paper clip, when I get home.

    I can only give the lame answer that all tech support gives to Windows users: clear your internet .tmp files, clear your browsing history, browsing data, etc.

    Then run defrag and disk cleanup just to be sure.

    I had a similar problem...couldn't get HF or WB, tried everything to no effect, and then, one day, like magic, all was well. I love a mystery.
