  • Failing to visit some sites

    I wonder if anyone would like to hazard an opinion as to why some such as a lady in the Orkneys using BT Broadband cannot always see the site below using what is now Orange free web space, while many others elsewhere seldom have any such problems. It is perhaps because of the isolation of the Orkneys or perhaps because Orange are using web space leased from another provider?

    "Cannot always see the site"

    Does this mean she can SOMETIMES see the site, or she can NEVER see the site?

    Does she have any problem with other sites in the freeserve.co.uk namespace, e.g. www.freeserve.co.uk and other members sites within that.

    Since it is the Orkneys, have you checked for (a) sheep eating the phone line (b) too many seagulls perching on it and (c) the tide?

      Thanks for the interest

      She says she cannot always get into both the Artistic Freeserve site mentioned and another one untill she tries again later one, but I believe she has no trouble visiting other sites.

        Just a couple of wild things to try given the entire story will take a while to unfold:

        1) I take it she is using IE 7?

        2) After the web site is not found, if she hits the backspace key, does it show up (Grandma has that problem).

        3) Turn off the MS phishing filter as it tends to muck stuff up if the connection is really slow.

        Give more info and we'll give you more stuff to try
        Cheers,
