wikipedia.org not accessible using myT?

This post was initially destined to contain a new soundtrack, from the TV Serial Monk.

But while looking for more info on Monk, i found out that Wikipedia.org was not accessible!

Not even the english version at http://en.wikipedia.org/I tried to ping, but damn it, my command prompt is now working lol !So, i tried to access if from an anonymous proxy ( http://www.hidemyass.com) and the page got loaded πŸ˜€

I did not really wanted to hide my ass but only browse using a proxy to check if the site was accessible.

I asked about 5-10 friends to try the link, only one using myT could, and CarrotMadman06 carrotmadman6 who uses ADSL could too… He told me that he too got different complaints that Wikipedia was not opening…

I just called myT (lol! i spent 10mins looking for the myT customer care number since i called them only twice since more than 8months!!!)
I finally got the num from their web site!

I seized the opportunity to ask my internet login and password since i forgot that as well ! haha!

So, after explaining the problem to the customer care agent, and was put on hold for a few mins, he/she(i didnt know if he was a she or she was a he), told me to switch off my livebox and restart it after 5min, as well as the computer before trying again.

Now, am gonna restart and if it doesnt load, i will post this article…

Even if it loads, i will post it too!

But at least, this is the 2nd problem i reported to the customer care since september 2007 i think!

Wow, they are good (for me, everyone have their own internet usage and problems)

LOL !

The results after a restart of livebox/computer after 5 mins:

Page cannot be found! Wikipedia still not accessible!

    Anyway, Nomad users can access Wiki & another friend of mine on ADSL could also access it.

    I think it’s a My.T prob. πŸ™‚

    Hi Yashvin,

    great blog !!!

    I’m a myT subscriber since some months and Wikipedia is accessible for me. In fact till now i’ve not encountered any problem with MyT itself apart from the connection speed from time to time
