All the Windows PCs on my network this morning, regardless of version of Windows receive an ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT when trying to access www.dropbox.com. The OSX machines are fine. All receive IP (Address, DNS) info from DHCP server, all use same firewall that has no rules blocking outbound connections. I tried using Google DNS servers, same result. Does not seem to be a DNS issue as a ping to Dropbox from those PCs return the IP address correctly.
It is obviously something on my network, but why only the Windows machines?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Different browsers, Incognito, different Windows versions on different PCs and the link you posted above, all same result.
Here is a Tracert result
I have also now tried bypassing my entire network/firewall. I have connected a Windows 10 machine directly into my ISPs router, using one of my public IPs available to me and I have same result.
I have no issues accessing any other websites I try, other than www.dropbox.com
The issue is either my ISP or dropbox.com with packets originating from my ISP network
