Unable to download .exe or ZIP Files from specific websites - Fios-G1100

Message 1 of 4

Hello All!

 

Router: Fios-G1100 1GB Up/Down

 

Like the title says I am unable to download .exe files from Blizzard.net, Samsung Magician, or CPU-Z the amount of time can range from 45 minutes to 2 hours from my desktop (hardwired). Also there are connectivity (laggy) issues when trying to access these websites. I am able to download the same files from another machine via wifi without issue . 


I have added Blizzard.net, Samsung Magician, or CPU-Z to my trusted websites, made sure windows installer was running, even reset registry for .exe downloads, and a clean install of Windows 10(3 weeks ago).

 

I have disabled Anti Virus Software on my machine. 

 

Maybe related to https://forums.verizon.com/t5/Fios-Internet/Unable-To-Connect-To-Certain-Websites/m-p/685471#M46074

 

But That did not work...Any Advice is appreaciated!
Thanks in advance!

Hi All,

 

Turned out the issue was related to my UPS system. 

 

Router > UPS > Computer

 

Not sure as to why my UPS would prevent me from downloading or accessing certain websites. 

 

Solution:

 

Router > Computer

I was able to get to Samsung Magician )its not a website but a download of sw) and CPU-Z (came as samsung magician).

When I  try to go to blizzard.net I get name not found.

A Google Search shows Blizzard.com.

Is that what you meant?

Not sure either.

 

What is the exact brand and model of the UPS?
