Hi there,

Welcome to the forum.

The site is working fine from here. Is it only the hsbc site you are having problems with?

Yes just HSBC but my housemates have it too.
Can you suggest any solutions?
I can access www.hsbc.com fine. But HSBC.co.uk just hangs no error. Firefox and internet explorer just show it as loading. ...

when i do ping www.hsbc.co.uk
i get ip address 161.133.4.1
Is this correct?

No:

>nslookup www.hsbc.co.uk

Server: ptn-cdns02.plus.net
Address: 212.159.6.10

Was 133 a typo or is that what you actually get? Have you tried flushing your DNS cache (ipconfig /flushdns)?

I'm getting the same problem with some sites;

www.aiesec.com
www.hotmail.com

It seems to be sites where you have to log in.

I have 4 PCs connected via a router - 2 wired and 2 wireless. They all have problems with these sites but work well with others!

Ironically, I can load www.hsbc.co.uk just fine.

I've tried flushing the DNS cache as suggested but it made no difference.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks
