cannot connect to website

  emcoluk 11:40 07 May 2007

For the past 7 months I have connected to a forum everyday....2 days ago I found I couldn't connect using IE, netscape or firefox....I get timed out or couldn't find website.
I have disabled all security and firewall but to no avail.
Could this just simply be my server....VIRGIN aaahh

no probs here but i noticed it appears to open in a pop up fashion, do you have a pop up blocker switched on?


  emcoluk 11:54 07 May 2007

pop up blocker is turned off

Do you have an internal analogue modem?

  emcoluk 12:02 07 May 2007

The modem is supplied by NTL (now virgin) cable.

I do not have a problem getting into any other site
