I had some issues trying to access this site at certain times of the night as well, but that's all pretty normal; all servers sometimes have slight downtime - very common.

I can access everyday so far no problem.
Are you using Singnet or Starhub, maybe DNS setting problem? :think:

you can check your DNS setting from command prompt: IPCONFIG /all

I have no problems accessing the site. Just tried with Singnet and last night used Starhub also worked. :think:

Do you have problems with other sites like dcresource, imaging-resource, or just dpreview?

only dpreview.com and all subsets. ie. forums, etc.
every other site works. photozone, slrgear, dpchallenge, dcresource, etc.

it's really strange how only 1 site doesnt work. and only 3 days ago when before that it was perfectly fine.


FF error message:



The connection has timed out

The server at www.dpreview.com is taking too long to respond.

could be possible that some of starhub's IPs got banned? since groups of starhub users share a particular IP.
