Hello. I do not know much about internet connections so please use layman terms. All I know is that one of my favorite websites can't be accessed by my home computer. The website is whimit . I know for a fact it can be accessed from other places. I run on windows XP with Time Warner Roadrunner connection. I tried deleting history IE files as well as Cookies, and no help. I also tried accessing via Firefox to no use. Can someone please help?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to TSG :)

Do you get any error messages / error number appear? This will help us determine what the problem is.

Thanks,
Dan

No error messages, basically it comes up as the server is down, which is what I intially thought until I found out that other people are able to access the site just fine.

hmmm, ok. If you click Start > Run > type in 'command' then press 'ok'. Then in the black DOS window, type ping <the domain name you are trying to access> (eg. microsoft.com). Does the ping resolve the name to an IP? If so, do you get replys?

(Hopefully this makes sense :p)
