  halken 18:57 29 Oct 2004

since i installed service pack 2 i cant log onto ebay i get a message that the site is experiencing difficulties and i should try later and also to check the settings of my computer. I have a dial up connection so i unplug my computer and use my lap top and hey presto it works, i have tried comparing settings on my 2 machines and i cant find any difference any suggestions would be a great help

how long ago did you SP2?

I have just signed into Ebay, and i have SP2, so it must be either they were down a short while ago, or that your security setting are blocking the site.

All i can say is that Ebay + Sp2 works, for me.

I've found SP2 to be the best thing since sliced bread

I suspect the problem is more to do with your PC than a specific Web site. When i first sp2'd it FUBAR after 2 weeks. Eventually i re-formatted, and re-installed. I suspect it was trying to SP2 on top of everything else on the PC.

Second time, install XP, Install SP2, install everything else. Worked OK, and has ever since.

I am sorry not to offer help, but as i can get onto e-bay OK, and never could not do so, i cant say 'when it stopped working for me i did (this)'
