Can't Get to a Specific Website

I have two laptop PCs - one is a Toshiba and one is an ASUS. Both run Windows 7. I use Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Firefox. Within those I use Google, Google, Chrome, Bing, and Yahoo to search the internet. They all work to get me to whatever site I am looking for -- except one. None of them on either computer will get me to

< http://amyhoworthforsenate.com/ >.

My internet provider is Time-Warner cable and I use a Microsoft Broadband Networking Wireless-G Kit MN-820 for my wireless in our house.

The set-up works for streaming on my TVs through NetFlix, HuLu, Amazon.com Prime and the like. My email works perfectly. I can get to any website except this one.

Any notion of why this might be happening?

try a direct connection to the modem bypassing the router.

if both are with the same isp it could potentially be blocking you from accessing the site. one of the more useful things to do here is to try running the tracert commend in command prompt to find if it can connect at alll and also to note down exactly "How" it fails to load, is there an error message, does the site just give an eternal loading, do you just get a blank page?

f it can be reaches from 1 PC and not from another that are connected to the same modem/router, it's something in the PC indeed.

Things to try:
- pinging it from the command prompt (that's ping followed by the url + enter)
- same for tracert
- find a file called hosts in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts (if so, remove the line and try again)
- see if you can reach the site if you boot in Safe mode with networking
