Can't Access FlightAware - 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.)

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.

Flightaware keeps trying to load a program from privacy-keep.com. Fire Fox blocks the installation. The Flightaware screen then locks up and Flightaware is unusable.

Flightaware shows the flight but when I asked for notifications it comes back with" unrecoverable error, can process at this time".

Flightaware has been a wonderful resource. However, today, it tracked the first leg of my son's flight to Oregon perfectly (Wyoming). Then it showed no activity for the next 5 1/2 hours and I could not reach him by phone. He has landed in Oregon, but Flightaware still shows him in Wyoming.

Server does not appear to be responding (DNS appears to be up.)
