Hi wanderer, I just accessed it with no trouble, using an ip address in the 86.144 range.

Since receiving your useful response I have used System Restore to an earlier date when it worked. No success! I have cleared my 'cookies' not sure what it can be since I guessed the site was not down for several days.

Hi. Welcome to the forums.

 

For some weird reason, this seems to happen from time to time. There are a number of actual reasons for it, security packages blocking the site, a corrupt browser (perhaps cookies), so try another browser, a router power cycle (or disconnect the broadband via the router menus, leave a few minutes and reconnect). This latter pair is to get a new IP address in case the one you've currently got has somehow become stale.

 

You can check IP address before/after by going here : http://www.whatismyip.com/

 

You can always try a proxy (e.g. www.proxify.com) and see if you can at least access it that way. That then can show if the site is actually working.

Success !!! Thank you very much. Change of ISP did it. I wondered about that but did not think you could change it . These Forums are very useful I post a lot on the Tripadvisor site responding to other peoples problems.  Now this one has solved mine . Thaks again.
