Amazon.com not accessible over wifi


Go to solution Solved by Anibal P,

Question

d4diesel

So, i picked up a new router two days back and set it up. When i connect with my laptop through wifi. I am unable to connect to amazon.com. it just times out. However, if i use the ethernet cable(wired connection) to connect to the same router with the same laptop, it seems to work perfectly fine. 

 

Also, i tried to goto 72.21.206.6 through my wifi connection, it works fine. I haven't come across any other site yet but it is possible that there might be a few more than is causing this issue. 

 

Anyone know what might be causing this? Obviously its something on the router since that is the only new hardware in the network but I would like to keep this router as I got a fairly good deal on it and resolve this issue. The router is a TP-LINK archer C7 ver 2.0

Sounds like a wifi card issue vs a router issue, main reason I say that is the fact that your phone does not have an issue, if it was a wifi settings thing none would be able to go to the site

Havent tried that yet but When i set it up, I updated the firmware to the latest version and did a factory reset then. That was yesterday. However, what i cant understand is the same router works fine over wired connection but having this issue over wifi.

Havent tried that yet but When i set it up, I updated the firmware to the latest version and did a factory reset then. That was yesterday. However, what i cant understand is the same router works fine over wired connection but having this issue over wifi.

That makes even less sense - why would wireless be an issue compared to a wired connection - on the same router?

My NETGEAR WNDR3700v4 supports at least two wired and two wireless devices all the time; the two wired devices are both desktop PCs. However, the two wireless devices are a smartphone and one of my two notebooks. Visitors (bringing smartphones or notebooks) also use the same router. About half have Amazon accounts - three have Amazon Prime. Not one has any issue - via either smartphone OR notebook.

Did you hide you SSID? If so, you may need to either unhide it OR have the problem devices connect "in the blind". (Not all wireless adapters support blind connections, unfortunately - this is especially true of older adapters for 2.4 GHz N or slower. I didn't hide my SSID - however, I do have the strongest encryption that is commonly supported for home routers enabled (AES). (If I could safely go Enterprise, I would - however, THAT presents a problem for smartphones.)

No, the SSID is not hidden. And weirdly it works on the same wifi band for other devices (my smartphone).

 

I just changed the channel and beacon threshold and RTS threshold (read about something similar through a google search) but it seems to have fixed the issue. Its very weird. I still cant pinpoint what seems to have caused such an issue.

Did you check your wireless card? it sounds to me maybe does not working properly.

you sure you just didn't have an issue resolving it via wifi..  So when wifi do a ping to www.amazon.com or nslookup or dig or drill use whatever your fav tool is to resolve.

Notice the really really short TTL of 60 seconds.  You could have had a bleep or gotten a bad entry and then when you were wired and did it again you got a different IP, etc.

so, it turns out there were quite a lot more issues that I was having and just needed time to find them as this the router was setup only a day before posting the first message. 

 

What i did was went back to the old router (TP LINK wr841nd) and on that everything is was back to working fine like before. This is the reason why i kept thinking it was the new router. However, since someone above pointed out that it might be the wifi card issue. So, I have a USB wifi adapter (used to use it with the desktop). I decided to plug that into the laptop and everything started working perfectly fine. no issues at all with the USB wifi adapter or over the wired connection. So, finally i updated the wifi driver from DELL's site and so far a whole day has passed and it seems to be working perfectly. 

 

What I dont understand is how a outdated driver can be preventing a site from loading and why it would work with an older router and not the new one.

Funny you mention that.....hardware not always plays nice with each other.  Case in point, some Apple laptops will NOT work with Belkin routers, why? who the hell knows...same issue you have, full connection to router, all settings are good, but nope, some websites do not work some others do, etc, etc, etc.....

 

Glad to hear it was a driver, and not you having to go and purchase a different brand of router.

      Wireshark is a network packet analyzer. A network packet analyzer will try to capture network packets and tries to display that packet data as detailed as possible. You could think of a network packet analyzer as a measuring device used to examine what's going on inside a network cable, just like a voltmeter is used by an electrician to examine what's going on inside an electric cable (but at a higher level, of course). In the past, such tools were either very expensive, proprietary, or both. However, with the advent of Wireshark, all that has changed. Wireshark is perhaps one of the best open source packet analyzers available today.

      Vodafone launches ‘unbreakable' Pro Broadband packages
      by Paul Hill



      Vodafone has announced the launch of its new Pro Broadband packages which it says will ensure you can always get online no matter where in your home you are. If you don’t receive coverage throughout your domicile, the firm said you can end your contract without facing a penalty.

      Under the new Superfast, Ultrafast and Gigafast plans, users will be provided with Super WiFi wireless range boosters that use software that works with the router’s Intelligent WiFi feature to provide the best performance. If they detect any wireless congestion from neighbours they will work around this to ensure you get a reliable connection.

      To make customers’ connections even more reliable, Vodafone has launched a new dedicated team called WiFi Xperts - a trained squad of engineers who proactively monitor networks and contact customers if they detect issues. New customers will be contacted by the WiFi Xperts within 10 days of their service to make sure everything is working properly.

      If you do run into issues with your connection between the router and the local telephone exchange, the router will utilise the Broadband Back-up feature which is essentially a 4G mobile connection via a USB plugged into the router to help you stay connected until WiFi is restored. The mobile USB is capped at 50GB but this can be extended if needed.

      It’s an interesting offer from Vodafone; we’ve all experienced a WiFi outage at some point or other and they can be frustrating. With more people learning and working from home, having a stable connection is more important than ever.
