    Default site not working

    thepiratebay.org is not working, browser shows: Page not found - connection failure.

    is there some problem in my mtu setting, is the site down?

    Which is your AV software? Get the PC scanned with a respectable AV software like Kaspersky. There is a worm on loose, which disables access to TPB.

    I do not understand. I am able to open up the website and browse for torrents. Yet many are reporting that the site's search function is not active and the site is in maintenance mode !!
