I didn't realize the ACP index page (2.0.13) froze if phpbb.com went down. At least it doesn't kill the whole ACP.

Yeah, my CP page took 30-60 seconds to load because phpBB.com was unreachable. Not sure what's happening with it.

It seems from other peoples comments that some service providers do not have routes to the server ... the vast majority, across the globe obviously do. If anyone here is having continued problems accessing http://www.phpbb.com" target="_blank I'd recommend you contact your service provider as a first port of call.

The strange thing is that area51 works all the time.
(I guess they are not on the same server)

I do a traceroute next time it does not answer.

Given that www. and area51. are on totally different continents, it's not a surprise that you can reach one and not the other if your ISP is having problems ;)

Simply try to use the server's IP directly - if it works, it's likely that the whole issue is because of wrong nameserver entries, then you should consider adding a couple of other nameservers to your hosts file - or the equivalent of it under windows - there should be such a possibility for each interface under windows.

... I can do it without the www., I just have to have http://" target="_blank :?

Everyone who keeps doing this, please try http://www.phpbb.com" target="_blank first... It works for me whereas phpbb.com no longer works.
