Strange thing,
Cannot connect to Ebay's site today under my PN ADSL but can using my old dialup service (not PlusNet). Just won't have it, although other sites loading ok. I've looked at cookies, browsers (IE & FF) and access via sub pages etc without success. Go to dialup and no problems - this is not good for Ebayers - whats going onHuh

Do you have Protowall or similar installed? this has a tendency to block the ebay ip range. Failing that I would check that you have no dodgy looking entries in your HOSTS file. Can you access it by typing in the ip? Type http://66.135.208.96 which should take you to the same page as http://www.ebay.co.uk - if the ip works and the URL doesn't then you have a DNS issue - reboot your router and PC and try again.

Thanks 'chuffbears'
After many router reboots and defaulting and rebooting again, I'm loggin into Ebay again - don't know how or why and what caused this and if it's my rotten Dynamode router or elements outside my control, but it's back.
thanks for helping

no probs - you probably had an incorrect address cached in DNS or summink. Thinking on I suppose it's feasible you had an incorrect DNS server or similar, and by resetting to defaults it's pointed you to the Plusnet ones.
