This shows that you can get to the site by IP address, but not by name.  Interesting... 

We'll need to troubleshoot your DNS further.  Next time you have trouble, please open a command prompt, and run the following set of commands, then post the output:

nslookup

Ok, I'm trying to decipher what you did but you've made it a lot of work and I just can't be sure what is going on.  In order to help, I'd like for you to cut the commands I gave you above and paste them into the command prompt rather than typing them yourself.  That will eliminate typos like "ns lookup" when it should have been "nslookup".

Also, please copy the results out of the command window and paste them into the forum.  I can't tell if your typos are before or after you ran the command.

Jerry, why are you still using that totally UNSAFE I.E. ???


A few years ago, I was so SICK of I.E. that I could chew nails.  For instance I could not work Yahoo Groups at all with I.E.  I had to use the old clunky "Netscape".
Then Mozilla Firefox came along,,,,,even in the pre-release versions it was like a breath of fresh air!  Smiley Smiley Smiley
I could go wherever I liked and everything just worked.

YES, a thousand times YES, I highly recommend Firefox.
Didn't you get that impression from the Signature line on my last post?
I thought that was obvious! Wink Roll Eyes
I even gave you the link to download it!!!

Cool

This is almost too much. It took me all of about twenty minutes to get in this time.  If you can't figure anything out here I am just going to give up on the forum. I know it is not your fault, but time is precious and if I have to spend this much time trying as much as I enjoy learning from the forum, well I'll just have to quit until someone figures something out.  I'll be back at once more time to see if it can be figured out. I don't know what the cingular reference is to, unless it's my air-card which is from cingular.

See below for DOS results

The better information you give us, the faster we can figure it out.  Thanks for cuting and pasting this time - its much easier to read.

It looks like your Cingular DNS server is not responding to you.  This is an issue with their server.  The other DNS server I had you try (4.2.2.1) did respond and did give you the correct answer.

An easy fix is to change the DNS server your computer is using.  Instead of 209.183.35.23 (which is your Cingular DNS server), you could try 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220.  These servers are owned by OpenDNS (http://www.opendns.com/).  There instructions on their site for making the change if you aren't familiar with the process:

https://www.opendns.com/start/computer/

It is not too difficult and should take less than 5 minutes.

Another possible solution is to call Cingular next time you have this issue and have them troubleshoot the issue with you.  Perhaps they can get their server fixed.  It is probably easier and less frustrating to change over to OpenDNS, though.

Mucho Gracious. That appears to have done the trick. Hellsbones had suggested in a personal message that he also thought it was in the DNS server settings. But I was not brave enough to wade in there ... until tonight. Many thanks again. Perhaps that will help in a number of other areas too.

i've used opendns for a year now, at recommendation of my web host, wiredtree.

normally, if there is a prob with site server, more than 1 person will have prob.

didn't know cingular was into isp.

This is an Air-phone & this may be the difference. At least, now you know in the future if this issue resurfaces
