Hi,

I cannot browse to www.youtube.com or youtube.com at all

When I ping www.youtube.com I get the request timeout error.

I have tried changing the DNS to the 8.8.8.8 Google DNS on the network preference of Mac OS and also on the Home Router that I connect to but still the same issue.

Here are the results of my traceroute to youtube:

youtube.com has address 74.125.127.100
youtube.com mail is handled by 10 sjl-mbox1.sjl.youtube.com.


I've also used dscacheutil -flushcache and that does not work!

I need a Guru to really help me out!! :confused::(

Might i suggest you not post your IP address ;)

Some websites don't allow you to ping them.

Thanks for the advice.. but I cannot browse to www.youtube.com from any of the browsers I have on my Macbook Pro.. Opera, Safari, Firefox all cannot display www.youtube.com

Safari can’t open the page.
Safari can’t open the page “http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SF_suo-tNw” because the server where this page is located isn’t responding.

Hi anyone which can help me with the issue? Please!

Ahhh!!! I found the solution somewhere... in my case it was peerguardian.

if you have that installed, launch it, goto webspiders and bots and check "allow standard ports" that did it for me..

Why would that matter for a home network? And what is his IP?

Guys anyone? with some troubleshooting experience?

in order to troubleshoot this properly I'd recommend you try connecting/pinging
youtube using another computer (PC/Mac) - borrow one if you must...
if the issue persists on another machine, reset your router to factory/ISP defaults, configure it using ISP settings again and re-try
if that fails to improve things I suggest ringing your ISP
[ might try Open DNS as well, before resetting the router ]
let us know how it went

good luck
