Ring your isp , ask to speak with the systems manager or a person who knows a bit about internet infrastrucutre , at your isp . Tell him whats happening , you may be lucky and get him to refresh there cache databases :) Thats when you get incredibly fast internet , thats why have of the time 56kers get slow net ...

Delete your temp files , delete your cookies....

check your hosts file (C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\) for dodgy entries, normally there should be only one. (open it with notepad)

Was about to say check your hosts too.

It is a sort of rule-list. It will take any address (or part address) and allow it to redirect elsewhere.

For the average user, you should only see the "127.0.0.1 localhost" line.

are you on a domain? You might need to clear your internal DNS servers cache

What happens when you go to the cmd line and perform an nslookup?

run an nslookup for the site that is giving you trouble. Note the IP.

After, at the nslookup cmd prompt, type:

server 206.13.29.12

Then try the domain that's giving you problems. Compare the IP it returns to the one you wrote down previously.

If it's different and you have an internal DNS server, clear the cache and check the forwarders.

If you you are running a workgroup, at the cmd prompt run:

ipconfig /flushdns

If that doesn't change anything, it might be safe to assume your isp is having issues.
