Is anyone else having trouble getting to Hotmail or Myspace? I've been trying for 1/2 an hour with no success?

I remembered which is meant to help you determine if the problem is you or not and I can't get to that site either?

Something seems very fishy here....

Now hotmail and are now working but myspace isn't. Also just tried and that's not loading properly either. I also tried youtube and everything seems to work until you go to play a video and then it says video not found, no matter how many videos i try. This is very odd. Is it just me?

Just an FYI, I am on xtra and they all work fine for me.

Have you restarted your modem/router? How about posting a tracert for us to have a look at?

Well it seems pretty much all international websites are either 'server not found' or work only sometimes right now. Hmmm.....

Well still behaving very odd. I'm on the hibiscus coast. Yup restarted router several times. I have no idea what a tracert is sorry. I'll have to look that one up.

insane: Are you using the correct DNS settings?

Yes, This morning I tried using the ethernet port on the pc (it has 2) and everything seemd to work ok. The other one I had set up for port fowarding utorrent. Not quite sure what's gone wrong. I'll have to have a look and see if I can figure it out.
