Re: strange 'block' problem has me stumped
interestingly, as of I've just tried again (10:30pm) and can login to msn though a traceroute fails but this time not until hop 9.
ajtag - I've tried the other subdomains you mention but have no problems with these. I too noticed the red flag on the virgin service status but could find no other info... infact i started to wonder if it was jsut an interface element telling me i had selected 'broadband' servie status as apposed to phone.. tv etc. if this is the case then it's lousy UI design.
I'll Keep you posted as to how long the messenger connection it lasts.
