    The thread says it all. I cannot connect to Craig's List from any of the computers in my home. Its the only website that gives me a problem. I get the cannot connect/server error on both IE and Firefox. So far, I've tried clearing the cookies, shutting down the firewall and rebooting everything. After all that, I was able to connect to the Boston Craig's List homepage ( www.boston.craigslist.org ) once, but got the same error after clicking on a link. I'm connected to the internet using a wireless router and DSL modem. Any help correcting this will be greatly appreciated.

    Just a shot in the dark here, but is it possible your firewall is blocking it out? Assuming you have a firewall, perhaps the site got accidentally blocked?

    Did you check your 'localhosts' file, do you get a DNS error or do you happen to go elsewhere or what? Some spyware, spam has been known to trick your browser for certain IP addresses although I would check your firewall, and other stuff mentioned here first..
