Problem: Few days ago, my firefox browser started to refuse to load the www.facebook.com, in fact it loads the login page, but then lingers forever on the next step stating; "waiting for the static.ak.fbcdn.net" or "Transferring data from the static.ak.fbcdn.net" First I thought it's something with their server, or my ISP, but then I learned that all my friends that are on the same ISP aren't having similar problems what so ever. I thought it might be my wireless internet rooter, but with my Laptop connected wireless upon the same rooter everything's coming up roses, while parallel on my Main rig, it loads n' loads forever ;; I can not click upon any app or send any msg. I think I already tried everything.. Even power cycling the rooter, dns flush,malware,spyware etc..
(Due to popularity of this post i am also including snapshots at the end)
So finally here is the solution...
google some online ping sites like http://ping.eu/ping/
and ping the problem like "static.ak.fbcdn.net" so that you will get the ip address in result like...
64 bytes from akamai-deploy-5.latnetserviss.lv (126.96.36.199): icmp_seq=1 ttl=49 time=43.5 ms
64 bytes from akamai-deploy-5.latnetserviss.lv (188.8.131.52): icmp_seq=2 ttl=49 time=43.6 ms
64 bytes from akamai-deploy-5.latnetserviss.lv (184.108.40.206): icmp_seq=3 ttl=49 time=43.5 ms
Since u got the IP Address "220.127.116.11" Now open
my computer > windows > system32 > Drivers > etc
here u will find a file named "hosts"
open it in notepad.
You may find
"127.0.0.1 localhost" somewhere at the end
make it a new entry ur ip address alongwith site like this
Now refresh your site, in my case it was www.facebook.com
Its open now...
