    I've searched around these forums and other forums for solutions, but nothing I've read has helped.

    I'm trying to access my own website (www.fbod.net) and it won't load for me. I know for a fact that other people can access it. Nobody in my apartment can access the website (we're all on the same router).

    I use Windows XP and Firefox. When I try to load the site I don't get an error, it just attempts to load indefinitely.

    I have gone to Windows\system32\drivers\etc and checked the hosts file.

    I've tried ipconfig /flushdns

    I can ping the website and I get 4 packets sent, 4 packets received.

    I cannot load the website by entering the IP adresss into the address window.

    I cannot access my website through an FTP program. I get this error:
    I am able to access the website through a proxy site (www.phproxy.org).

    As far as I know I don't have a firewall running.

    I did find one website that suggested switching to a static IP, but when I tried that I lost my internet connection and it didn't come back until I reverted my settings. I may have just done it wrong, though.

    I forgot to mention, I cannot access the site through Internet Explorer 6 either.

    I said that I know for a fact that other people can access it fine. If other people couldn't then it'd be a problem with my host and I wouldn't be asking in here. :p

    I doubt it's the same problem as your work. I don't host the site on my own server, so for me to access the site from my home computer is just like any other person trying to access it. It makes no difference that I own the site.
