  • Site always down

    Don't know if this happens to anyone else, but sometimes I try coming to the forums or this whole site in geneeral and it says that "mp3car.com cannot be found".

    Usually happens when I've been viewing it for 10 mins or so and the the site just leaves, as if the hosting is down. And I doubt it my PC coz I use a lot of other forums frequently and never have a problem.

    Does this happen to anyone else or does someone know how to fix it?

I am very interested in tracking down network problems but I cannot do this without proper information. Messages that simply say "site is down" with no more information will receive a polite reply, and then be promptly ignored.

    Ping? Tracert? Anything? Sounds like your ISP's problem. DNS more than likely.

      Yesterday I could not get it all, even though tracert went through ok. but everyone else uk side got it ok, so I'l blame my isp for that one, even though others on my isp where ok.

      hops where <10ms uk side, 100-130 after the water, odd thing is tracert failed to get to ebay.co.uk without a timeout, but ebay worked.......


      I rebooted my cale modem, my wifi router, reset them all to defaults, played with the defaults, removed all filtering, set up filtering to overwrite 'ghost' settings, then gave up.

      just tried machine now, its fine, and nothings been rebooted since yesterday so I cant even blame windows.

          I had loads of problems accessing mp3car yesterday, would be fine one minute then drop off the next, I've noticed the last few days that the transatlantic links seem much slower than normal.

              And today it was off again!

              now its back on!

              Seems I will just have to use mp3car in the evenings, I cant get it to work in the day!

              Oh hang on thats the opposite of before, ok it must be random.

              How do I copy the results from tracert to a textfile etc so next time it fails I can post it?

                            I noticed a little bit of slowness over the past few days, that is, pages took a few seconds longer to load than they should. I attributed this to a combination of traffic as a result of CES combined with Scuse's thread growing in size again.

                            As always, "site outages" will be attributed to network connectivitity issues beyond our control unless ping and/or traceroute data show otherwise.
