Can you access Reddit?

Just wondering if any of you have problems with accessing Reddit? I can't seem to reach the site from my home broadband. Any other website is fine, and I cannot access it from my PC or phone.

 

However, if I turn off wireless and use my mobile connection on my phone, I can connect fine.

 

Not only that I cannot ping the site, I cannot even do a lookup.

Probably cookies. Try using a different browser on your PC.

Re: Can you access Reddit?

I cannot access Reddit via my Optus mobile currently. My mobile reports www.reddit.com's server DNS address could not be found.

 

Works fine via my non-Optus desktop connection. As soon as I switch Wi-Fi on for my mobile, it connects.

Switch Wi-Fi off, and DNS resolution failure again.

Re: Can you access Reddit?

It was also not working on two other mobile devices using the app last night running off wireless on my home broadband. It was ok if I use mobile connection. Everything seems ok this morning though, so I'm not sure what happened there.

Re: Can you access Reddit?

Any number of things could be stopping you from accessing a particular website. If Reddit is using a CDN, it may resolve to several different IP addresses, which may be cause a timeout error on certain connections. It is rather strange to have Reddit specifically blocked in this instance. Was there anything in particular that you did @Bugisman to eventually get it working? Power cycling your router (if you haven't in a while) will reset everything and any potential DNS changes you may have made that could be blocking access, so that would be the first thing I would recommend.
