We have tried pinging Internet Archive Wayback Machine website using our server and the website returned the above results. If archive.org is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Internet Archive Wayback Machine - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as web.archive.org

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

"there is a network problem" is the message I've been getting for about two hours on various browsers and regardless of what I do--everything seems to be working, but I can't upload - it displays that message--is it just me--seems that they have problems somewhat regularly--it is free...

I'm sure there are multi-tudes of applications. I was going to tell you some of them, but if you were a dishonest government spy for example, I'm sure that information would be all too useful to you. And if you don't know what the site does, and clearly have to ask what it is/does, then I don't trust you at all.

It usually just takes some time for it to come back up. There really isn't anything you can do. I'm curious. What do you guys use this for? :)
