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?

Oh, sorry; I didn't catch that. Unfortunately those subdomains are indeed opening for me now (as are the other sites I was having problems with earlier). As for what else to try / could be wrong with your machine, I'm afraid I'm out of ideas beyond what japolo suggested.

At the risk of sounding to beat the dead horse, you could flush your local DNS cache (ipconfig /flushdns) and see if that helps. Sometimes the gods smile when I do that; most of the time, not so much. Doesn't hurt to try though.
