    Hi, I'm having a bit of trouble since last week. I have sweethosting.com hosting my web site and my laptop can't seem to connect to the web site anymore. Everytime I try, I get an error msg: Gateway time out--- Server Unreachable.. sometimes when I repair the wireless connection I can get access, but sometimes I can't.

    I've tried scanning with with Nortons antivirus and scanned with spybot and also with Adware. I'm lost in the dark right now. My Desk top computer can access the web site though.

    Can someone help me please.

    This is what I got when I just tried that site;

    "This page is used to test the proper operation of the Apache HTTP server after it has been installed. If you can read this page, it means that the Apache HTTP server installed at this site is working properly.
    If you are a member of the general public:

    The fact that you are seeing this page indicates that the website you just visited is either experiencing problems, or is undergoing routine maintenance."

    Checking the URL with a server identification tool produced the information that it is online, but returns a "HTTP 1.0 403 Forbidden", which seems to confirm the information above.

    The IP address for that domain is 69.42.129.18. Sometimes, using the IP address instead of the URL works better, although I don't expect it will make much difference in this particular case.

    That URL works fine for me and the server query result indicates it is OK as well;

    "Initiating server query ...
    Looking up IP address for domain: www.sweethosting.net
    The IP address for the domain is: 72.232.75.131

    The server returned the following response headers:

    I wonder if a change of browser might help, although I doubt it, given the symptoms you describe.

    It appears that you have your desktop and laptop networked, so it is possible something needs changing in that setup but, unfortunately, I know nothing about how to troubleshhoot networks, wireless or otherwise!
