Unable to access https://www.thurrott.com/



I have been an avid reader of Paul Thurrott (all things Microsoft) for many years, but over the last 3 weeks or so cannot access his website from the Telstra network. I can access it from work so there is no issue with the site, but on Telstra I get... 


This site can’t be reached

The connection was reset.


Anyone have any idea what has been changed on Telstra?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you

No issues loading it either via my Telstra DSL, my Telstra mobile, or via my mobile broadband service (via Nighthawk).

Have you tried a different browser and/or clearing all history/cookies/cache on your current browser?

Also just confirming you aren't using any non-Telstra DNS or VPN service?

Seems to be an issue with my router! I can access from my mobile when not connected to my home WiFi, but when connected to my home network I am unable to connect. Weird that it only affects one site though...
