Have you tried another browser? Try Firefox (free here: http://www.mozilla.com ). Opera and Safari are also free AFAIK.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Do you have a DSL or cable modem and/or a router?

If so, turn them off. Wait a while (30-60 seconds). Turn the modem back on. Once the modem lights settle down, turn on the router.

Sounds improbable, but sometimes it's the modem and router which are not resolving the DNS correctly.

Well, the wireless signal comes from somewhere.

If you are only using a public access point, such as a library or internet cafe, then you are essentially correct - you do have control over the connection.

If you are using wireless at home, then there is a router, probably with the wireless access point built in.

I occasionally find that I am unable to access one or two sites with my laptop/wireless connection. Resetting the modem and/or router fixes that problem for me.

Can you try a different wireless hotspot? If you are able to access those web sites from another hotspot, that would narrow the problem down to your ISP.
