For the geekier among you:

Since joining Sprint last week, I have not been able to access the bulk of the website. I've concluded that it is a problem on my end, that for some reason the entire sprintpcs.com domain is inaccessible to me (however sprint.com is, which is useless for accessing anything). I've discovered I cannot even ping the domain. I have XP's firewall turned off, I don't seem to have any viruses or malware, and this installation of the OS is fairly new (2-3 months, tops)... so I'm stumped. I haven't had any access to another machine for testing, but I've had Welf ping the domain and she gets a reply just fine.

What else could be causing this?

it very well *could* be your machine, but if it IS your machine, it's something pretty deep in the gears if telnet doesn't cause a response. the only things that can do that kind of damage are firewalls, anti-virus software, and relatively strange problems with tcp/ip configs/lmhosts :/


Here's a question... and I'm sorry, I didn't read through everything to see if this has already been answered, but how do you connect to sprint? Is this a dial-up account? What other hardware do you run on your network at home? Are you trying to connect more than one machine to this?

There are a lot of variables here...

It's on a laptop over an EVDO modem.

What are you using for DNS?
