Is Wikipedia Down?

I’ve been trying to access Wikipedia all evening Thailand time. I get no response. Other sites are fine.

Fortunately I could access a cached version of the page I wanted from Google’s search engine.

Is Wikipedia down everywhere?

    Up and running here. Maybe a routing problem – there are several servers, maybe just the Asian one affected. Or some of the stupid web filtering by Thai authorities running amok again.

      Where are you?

      DNS returns an IP addtess for en.wikipedia.org but Pings time-out.

      It’ll probably be fixed tomorrow.

      I know the Government blocked the King’s entry on Wikipedia but not the entries of other members of the Royal Family. In that case I got an error page telling me that it had been blocked.

    I am in Germany, for me DNS returns 91.198.174.2. For Asia it has different servers and thus different IPs, so maybe its only those who are down. Also worth trying is a traceroute instead of a ping, that way you can see if its a routing problem or the target server is down.

      Good idea. According to tracert the packets get to trueinternetgateway.com which says the host is unreachable:

      From that it looks like last night the packets couldn’t find their way out of Thailand to get to Singapore.
