    Plz if someone can help.
    Don't know why I can't access to MDL under Win 8.1 ( firewall deactivate etc..), with Win 7 I don't have this problem. :(

    what browser you using? try getting firefox or chrome or updating to latest
    do all other websites work?

    install network drivers or try setting manual ip, someone here can tell you better

    cheers

    always watch the color of your member's name: when it turns to brown, you cannot access the site :p

    yep, must be a very rare problem which is not solved yet. Perhaps Yen or mods have an idea what can be the cause for it. Seems to be MDL-site related in any way

    I'm using chrome on 8.1 typing this right now. You're doing something else wrong.

    It isn't a solution he was kidding, how can you access mdl when you ask your pc to go to 127.0.0.1(ip refering to your own pc) whenever it is asked to go to forums.mydidgtallife.info
