Cannot Connect to Facebook

  1. Hi everyone,
    I know there's a lot of topics with similar issues floating around, but none of the solutions given have been able to help me. Neither my laptop nor my ipod can connect to facebook, however the other members of my household's various devices (desktops, laptops, phones, etc) are having no issues with connecting. All other sites connect fine. Changing rooms has no effect on connecting, so it isn't the room location. Oddly enough, I can access the mobile gateway (m.facebook.com) from my laptop, which really confused me, because the facebook app wouldn't run on my ipod. I'm running Windows 8 and use Chrome. I've been able to ping the site and receive all 4 packets. My facebook account definitely isn't blocked, and the http/https made no difference. There was no instance of facebook on my hosts file. I've run out of ideas.

    Also clearing my history/cashe didn't do anything. Forgot to mention that.

    I haven't been able to connect to Facebook for two days now, neither can my roommate. I have a desktop and he has a laptop. He can access Facebook on his cell phone though. I've tried everything. I think Facebook is having server issues. I'm so irritated. I'm having Words With Friends withdrawals. LOL

    Its not facebook, cause I'm in it on my other pc. On the device you're having trouble with, have you UN checked the "no proxy" setting?

    No I haven't unchecked the no proxy setting. Where would I find it, so I can make sure that it's checked?

    Proxy or no proxy, neither has an effect. The facebook page is still not accessible.

    what's your ISP? Seeing as I haven't been able to access facebook for 2 days either, there might be other stuff in common that could help find the root of the problem.
