I have had this stupid problem occuring 3 times in the last week on 3 different websites that I'm supposed to do templates for.

The first one I figured was because the site was from another country so maybe they blocked my IP.. But now these next two I can't load or view FTP on.

I thought it was just an FTP issue but I can't even load the domains in my internet browser at all.

I tried Flushing my DNS, ever since I learned how to do it I always wish it is a cure-all. :thumbsup: It's not though and I would really appreciate any suggestions..

Could this be a modem problem with our internet router or whatever?

When trying to load the websites I get:

Connection Interrupted

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

When trying to connect to the sites in ftp I get:

[20:58:08] SmartFTP v2.5.1006.10
[20:58:08] Resolving host name "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
[20:58:08] Connecting to xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Port: 21
[20:58:29] A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because

The site owner and someone else can view the sites perfectly fine, They're online and running. It's definetly me and it's not an FTP problem.. I don't think.
