I'm using a:

There is one site that I go to that depends on being able to load a 'companion ad site', in order for it's page to load properly(java applet). I never had any problems with it until a few weeks ago. I haven't added anything that should deny me access to the site. It's a game loading (not a download) 'ad page' on the Pogo game site. I have allowed all cookies, and removed my ZA firewall.

Here is the error...
By looking at this URL, can anyone tell where the failure lies? Is it the 'ad.doubleclick.net? or the .../pogo.dominoe.pogo/...?

One thing I wondered about is that, one time, I 'pinged' the ad.doubleclick.net ( site and all four packets failed. Timed out. Is it possible that their server/firewall, responded to my 'ping' request by blocking me?

This computer makes a wireless connection thru a Linksys router to the cable modem. I can connect successfully to the site from the main computer, but, not this one.

I have previously used SpywareBlaster and it's hosts file, plus I've incorporated SpyBot's Hosts file into mine.
Now, I have cleared the Hosts file leaving localhost.
Still the error comes up. I have turned off SpywareBlaster and disabled it. No popup blockers are turned on.
I have been to Add/Remove and ran the IE repair then 'restarted'. No joy.

Anybody have any ideas as to how to go about clearing this?
I understand this to be Windows way of saying it cannot connect to that page. So, does that mean, it's a router port thing? Could they be blocking me? Is it possible, I'm blocking them?

Thank you for any leads on which direction to take.
