    This has been happening for a little while but the problem seems to be getting worse.

    I cannot get to certain websites (ex. google or earthlink) but other, sites like OT and yahoo, come up. I have a hard time believing that these other sites routinely go down at the same time.

    Anybody have any ideas on what could be causing this?

    I have tried flushing my dns cache but it hasn't helped.

    it's most likely your ISP's fault

    Well OT is being a bitch lately so I wouldn't trust it for testing. You can always do a ping to test the DNS server - I use www.sony.com for testing since it's a site I would remember but don't visit.

    :o I called earthlink but I got the typical responses - turn off zonealarm and start pinging places :dunno:

    it started working again :dunno:
