I am no longer able to connect to various sites on the internet and the more I attempt to solve the problem, the more I am convinced that the problem lies with the ISP, in this case Tiscali.co.uk who were carrying out internal maintenance last week. The sites I can no longer reach are http://www.fortnumandmason.com http://www.spr-consilio.com/ We are unable to reach them indirectly through google I wonder if anyone else out there using Tiscali is able to reach these sites? There appears to be no problem reaching them with other servers (our friends have tried) and having spoken to fortnums and consilio, there are no technical problems with their sites. I have tried the usual self help, disconnecting internal security system such as firewall and anti-viral softwear (Windows live OneCare) etc but the problem remains. Both myself and the wife have separate computers in separate rooms and both use the same ISP have the same operating system (Windows XP) and the same security system and neither of can reach the above sites. Can anyone offer a solution? Most grateful for any assistance.
