I've been trying to load a forum site I belong to and I can only reach it through typing it's ip address in the address bar.  But I can't get to the forum discussion links, or get to the individual comments or make my own.


This is a recent problem since I purchased a laptop with Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10 ... although I can reach the website and links on my IPOD with no trouble (but that is extremely frustrating to use on a forum!).  I am connected with a WIFI connection, Shaw "Cisco" router.


I have tried ALL the troubleshooting IE10 offers through Microsoft (compatibility view, clearing cache, turning off add-ons one by one, etc.) numerous times.  It happens in all my browsers. Also I've tried reaching the website with all firewalls off.  I've done a virus scan. Probably I've spent 30 hours at this, reading, trying different fixes.  My virus program people suggested I ask my ISP.  It is the only website I can't reach!


One of the browsers gives the error message that the "server sent back no information".  or something to that effect.


Please help!!
