    incomprehensible

    This afternoon I have had full, but slow access to bf, and nothing else on the internet. No google. No yahoo. Nothing. I normally use google chrome, and so tried firefox. Nothing. Does bf have its own server? This despite the fact that my modem shows no internet, but my computer tells me I have it.

    My guess... your DNS serers were down but BF's ip address was already cached so you could still resolve that, ergo it worked.

    PS: Because all my providers have proven to be unreliable when it comes to DNS, I've switched to google's free dns:

    Primary: 8.8.8.8
    Secondary: 8.8.4.4

    Works like a charm.

    I can see I was sleep deprived when I replied.
