    I hope someone figures that one out as I too have had this same problem.

    I can go to just about any site w/o a problem; but if I try to FTP or just
    go to the sites home page I get timed out.

    I checked with the hosting service for the site and I can't even get to their
    main server.Yet I can 'ping' the URL or the IP -- no errors (lost packets).

    I've checked with 4 others that are on the same ISP as I am, (Verizon),
    and they have no problem getting there.

    FYI: www.barrel-lite.com is the site in question. The IP addresses are:
    208.180.27.50/51

    Looking for any possible ideas/work-a-rounds.

    Hey There, obfusc88,

    Feel your pain as I've been fighting this for 2 months.

    Instead of uninstalling everything, I went another route...

    I setup a brand new / Freshly Downloaded version of
    Ubuntu 9.10 ... Wiped the linux that was on it and did
    a complete format and clean install... 400+ megs of
    updates; So everything is brand new.

    The Results of:
    4 -- XP's
    1 -- Win7
    1 -- Linux

    !!!! NO CHANGE -- NADA -- ZIP !!!!

    The website in my earlier post times out on this machine
    as well as all the others.... SO!??? Where's the problem?

    (Side Note: As I said I've had others on Verizon's DSL and
    in my area try the site and they have no problem at all.)

    If you drop down to the command line and try nslookup www.barrel-lite.com do you get the correct IP address? If not, your DNS server may have a problem.

    Have you checked the Windows hosts file? I guess if the problem occurs on Linux, too, then a rogue entry there is not a very likely culprit. You could try adding a manual entry for www.barrel-lite.com to 208.180.27.50 -- it's not a solution, but it might be an effective workaround if DNS is your problem.

    If that doesn't help, do you have an external router with firewall capabilities, such as a wireless router? You could check there for any unexpected filters.

    I've done then manual typing entries of both the URL and the IP in the address bar -- NO JOY!

    Here's the results of the nslookup:
    Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
    (C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>nslookup www.barrel-lite.com
    Server: dslrouter
    Address: 192.168.1.1 (this is Verizon's router IP)

    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: barrel-lite.com
    Address: 208.180.27.50
    Aliases: www.barrel-lite.com

    My router is xxx.xxx.2.1 and feeds into 24 port hub/ plus has wireless, but
    only used on / with the laptop when it's not plugged in to the network.

    I've been in both routers and I can't see anything that would block just 'ONE'
    IP Address... that's the part that has me stumped.

    Verizon's router is a Westell (What should I be looking for? That I haven't tried
    or found... )

    I can ping both the name and the address with no problem.

    (After thought... would flushing the dns in a cmd prompt do any good and would
    that have to be done on all machines or would all machines have to be rebooted
    to take effect?)
