504 Gateway Timeout

I'm unable to contact my Hotmail Home Page.
I keep getting the following message:-
The following error occured
A DNS look up error occured because the request timed out during lookup
Contact the administrator.

As a novis I'm completely lost, can anyone please help !

Thank you Squall,
As a newcomer to IT, I do not fully understand your request.
I have two ISP's FREESERVE and HOTMAIL, I can dial up Freeserve without any hassle, untill quite recently I have been able to dial up Hotmail
strait from the short cut on my desktop, even if I try to dial up Hotmail from programs, I still get the 504 error, if I go through Freeserve search, the 504 error still comes up half way through the search. I am on Dial Up.

Thanks for answering Squall.
Chas 2.

the only site that you get the error message on?

Thank you Squall for your patience.

I have found dialing up HOTMAIL from the Shortcut on the desktop gives me the 504 Gateway timeout
error - If I go through my ISP FREESERVE, I can enter Hotmail in the search field and obtain it without any bother. HOTMAIL is my default call up, until the last couple of weeks I've had little bother with dialing HOTMAIL direct.

I used the Library computer with my HOTMAIL address and received the same error, and was advised to check with the administrater, which is myself.
