Once again, I am unable to access some websites - particularly News24. So, I'm cut off from my "morning newspaper" and I'm feeling deprived! I've tried to 'tracert' along the router path, but everything is very slow, and the path peters out before it reaches the site. Last time, this happened, it appeared that one of the Telkom routers had lost its internal routing table.

i.e.

d:\>tracert www.news24.com

Tracing route to www.news24.com [104.20.20.237]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 * * * Request timed out.
2 * * * Request timed out.
3 * * * Request timed out.
4 * * * Request timed out.
5 32 ms 23 ms 18 ms telkom-internet-gw.telkom-ipnet.co.za [165.165.184.22]
6 30 ms 24 ms 19 ms rrba-ip-bng-3-wan.telkom-ipnet.co.za [165.165.184.21]
7 54 ms 32 ms 39 ms 196.43.8.45
8 43 ms 28 ms 43 ms rndf-ip-p-1-bundle-pos-104.telkom-ipnet.co.za [41.147.241.49]
9 53 ms 33 ms 41 ms nngy-ip-p-1-pos-0-0-0-0.telkom-ipnet.co.za [41.147.240.30]
10 54 ms 36 ms 40 ms nngy-ip-bpe-1-tgig-0-1-0-7.telkom-ipnet.co.za [41.147.240.74]
11 * * * Request timed out.
12 * * * Request timed out.
13 * * * Request timed out.
14 * * * Request timed out.
15 * * ^C

If any Telkom techie is reading this - can you please check if any of the routers on the path have been reset? Thanks!

Re: Websites blocked

Date 12/11/2118 - Telkom connection to local website News24 has been restored. Now, there's just the connection to 'Disqus', the international commenting site. This allows readers to read and write comments on news blogs such as Breitbart London (for European news) and Politicsweb.co.za for local news commentary. I still think that it's a failure in Telkom's router chain! This comment site  [151.101.64.134] is embedded in the news sites' Java. I can 'ping' it, and tracert to it, but it seems that the embedded Java can't load the site's data.
