    Hi,
    I've been trying to go to http://www.crutchfield.com for weeks now, and thought they had maybe gone out of business, but today I tried it in Internet Explorer and Camino, and it worked! Every time I go with Safari, it says:

    This page can't be found.
    Safari can’t open the page “http://www.crutchfield.com/” because the page doesn’t exist. Make sure the address for the page is correct.

    Can any of you duplicate this problem, or tell me what might be going wrong?
    I'm running the latest version of Safari (1.2.3 v125.9) on 10.3.5.

    Thanks,
    Lee Tom

    Try (if you have not already) clearing the cache and cookies etc .. that solved a problem I had in the past ... also I could not access www.noggin.com (kids site for the kids) until I reset my linksys router. Why I have no idea ... Just a thought...hope this helps.

    Works fine for me too. Try ryping http://12.4.198.133 in your safari address bar and see if that works.

    That gave me a link to the site, I clicked on that and it did work!

    If it's not a huge loss, try resetting Safari and trying it. Note that resetting also clears all passwords and useful cookies, so do it with care.

    You could also try whacking your Safari prefs.

    I can't get the site to load either, even after emptying the cache and resetting safari.
    I'm on 10.3.5 and Safari 1.2.3 v125.9

    Yea I don't think I'm going to do that, I don't really have a need to go there, just found it interesting that it doesn't work. Might not have anything to do with it but I'm wireless on a netgear router.

    I have had serious troubles with my Netgear wireless router as well, but using it as a hard wired router. It has been buggy, slow and inconsistent. Many times it wouldn't let me load istes and it definitelky slows down the whole web browsing experience. Also, outside connections don't work as fast as they should.

    Any problems you are having might be due to the router and not the site.

    Tsc, tsc...

    Guys, I believe there's nothing to do with Safari or Mac OS. It's just the region where you're acessing from, I mean, the route from your connection to http://www.crutchfield.com. It's about the DNS spread from crutchfield over the web, maybe they have been messing with or updating it.

    For me it doesn't work either (my DSL provider in Brazil). But when I get a connection with a different route, works just fine (satellite). Same computer but different connection solved the problem.

    Weird. Worked for me in Mozilla; didn't work in Safari. However then in Safari I got rid of the trailing "/" and it worked.

    I wonder if they're browser sniffing and doing something odd on the server...

    Tried it in IE 6 on my PC too. Didn't work. Didn't even try searching, just said The page cannot be displayed. Weird, because I was just there a few days ago. I can't access it no matter what I try. Weird. Give it a day or 2. Server upgrade of something on their part maybe.

    Edit: wait... you said weeks now? You should call them. Something is not right. I wonder if anyone has let them know.

    Here's what we know:
    -Some of us can, some of us can't.
    -Those of us that can't, CAN with other browsers (ruling out DNS problems)
    -Those of us that can't, also cannot by clicking a link or entering the IP.
    -Those of us that CAN, CAN by entering the trailing info (/S-cs5dY5k0p0v/)

    I definitely think this has either something to do with Crutchfield's server configuration, a bug in Safari, or a combination of the two. I've reported it to Apple....

    Yeah, right!

    Taking your logic as example a bug in Safari or server configuration or a combination of the two rules out Apple responsibility. Take Counterfit, munkle and many others as example... they use the same system and upadates as you and can access the site.

    I still believe it's DNS related, and by the way, there is only one case of not getting it with Safari and getting it with other browser in the same machine. So...

    Read cahillj post again and maybe you start believing it's indeed DNS related.
