    This is the only site I can reach. So I checked into my computer and find out msn isn't able to connect to me. My lines are clear. Nothing unplugged. Have checked everything. Even turned off computer and unplugged it from power source. Say I wanted to get on the auburn cord duesenberg site.. Not.. It times out Ebay is the same. My email is VERY SLOW.. My oh my am I pissed off...

    Download chrome browser. MSN is pretty dated, slow and no longer standard. Chrome is pretty quick and nice to use.

    I use Firefox and the last 2 days the HVAC Forum I frequent has been down...it get's a ton of traffic but has never been down for more than an hour or two in the past.

    Lets narrow the guessing a bit, Gary. Tell us about your computer. Desktop? Laptop? What motherboard? What operating system? Which browser, and which version? What ISP? Do you use cable? What router? What modem?

    Do you consistently get OB? If you turn your system off, let it sit for a bit, and turn it back on, do you still get OB and only OB?

    Assume Windows.

    Hit Windows key+R

    Enter "cmd" into bar and Enter

    Type "ping google.com" Enter

    If you get timeouts, your ISPs DNS is down. You wont be able to get here either once your cache times out.

    Sprint does this frequently to me. I keep a public dns ip handy and switch over when it does. Doubt it has anything to do with your machine.

    Problem fix.. Turns out Frontier cut me off for non payment... WTF is this all bout...I paid my bill.. Well sir it takes us up to 72 hours to process the payment..so that was 2 friggen days ago... I called today the very nice person named jorden talked to the collections dept. told me maybe in 24 hours I will be back online... but usually it wont take that long but..It could. My computer and my tvs are on Frontier. I NEVER lost my tv reception and have been watching it since this started. Back story is my mail in payment for Dec. was returned cause they could not process it. claim was check was damaged.. It sure was. the envelope was cut in half as was my payment check. Only reason I got this back was my return stamp was still on the letter but the other end with the US postage stamp was gone.. It was THEIR letter opener that destroyed my check.. Not me.. So That was fixed but I'm still listed as non payment... BTW when you pay online to Frontier it CAN and usually take 72 hours for them to process this payment. they want you to mail in payment cause they can process it faster... Wow am I every looking for a different carrier now. Very often my signon name and password get "lost" on Frontiers end so I have so start another one. Sometime their "special password numbers" wont work when I try it reset my password so its a long horrible mess with Frontier..Thanks for all the help and tips on what to do in the future..I know I will have a short future with Frontier...
