    hi guys..

    i have this problem and i hv tried searchng in google for references bt no help.

    I am using hathway connctn in bangalore and am not able to open orkut and gmail.com

    i chckd my firewall and its off and m nt blckng any sites. gmail opens sometimes so does orkut but most of the times orkut simply doesnt open. when i try to open orkut.com it jst keeps wrkng and finally ask to download and save a file 'orkut.com'

    m currently chckng for virus.

    also i tried it on IE, firefox and opera same problem

    I called up my ISP wala, bt they say they r nt blockng any sites...

    Also i can open gmail via gtalk. also can access orkut via powerscrap.com but nt directly!!

    plz help...

    Its an ISP problem. I used to face this with VSNL for some other sites. The sites did open through a web-proxy but not directly.

    Clear your browser's cache totally (passwords, history, etc) and then try to open orkut. You said it tells you to download a file called "ORKUT.COM".. tht means your browser faces a problem displaying a site. Always keep 2-3 browsers installed and check in each one of them.

    Banned today? Why so late? He probably disappeared off after his prob got solved and probably wont come back until the next one pops up.
