How come Facebook doesn't work for me?

Whenever I type "facebook.com" into my url bar and hit enter, it always says,

"The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading."

What is wrong with my home computer? When I go to my grandma's house, it works. I need HELP.

    Not sure if this is it or not, but from an IT perspective, I'm assuming that everything else works normally? If so, then try typing in the full address, i.e. http://www.facebook.com./ If that does not work, try https://www.facebook.com/ Whatever browser settings you are using at your grandma's may require a secure connection, so see if either of these help establish a connection.

    Are you able to hit other sites from your home PC - i.e. can you browse to Google, CNN, Disney etc. or do you receive the same timeout / 'connection was reset' message?

    Also, what browser are you using? You might try installing another browser, see if Facebook resolves (loads) and if so, you know it's the current browser and/or its configuration. If so, you should Google the 'troublemaker browser' with the error message ('the connection to the server was reset...") and you'll find why it's happening and the config. fix.

    the problem is probably that either your computer is too slow, or more likely, that your internet connection is too slow. if your using wifi, try getting closer to the router or try using a wired connection.
