Unable to connect to website

Win XP service pack 2, IE7/Firefox

I am unable to connect to one website which I have constantly used...all other sites open whithout any problems, this only happened last night. I know that the site is ok as friends have been able to get to the site. I have installed Firefox to see if it was a problem with IE7 but it also is unable to connect to the site.I have had conversations with my ISP but nothing has helped ie doing a DNS flush and IP log flush, any ideas folks.

Try entering the site's IP address into your browser instead of its name. To find its IP address, "ping" it:

Open a Command Prompt window ("Start > Run", type CMD and click OK) and at the prompt type PING followed by the domain. For example:

ping google.co.uk

gets a reply and shows its IP address as so the page can be accessed by typing into your browser (without the spaces):

http : //

have tried that before and unable to ping...I know the site is ok, as I said friends are able to open the site. I still think its a DNS problem but am unable to resolve it

More likely to be a Firewall or cookie problem.Try Tools Internet Options .Privacy.Sites.Type the address of the website and press Allow.Ok.Apply.Ok. see if that helps.
