Hi- I couldn't find anything quite like this in the search, but found a couple of interesting things to try none-the-less. Anyway, the sometimes I can't goto certain sites, but others work fine. One reliable one that fails is "ebay.com". When it fails it says something like "safari couln't open the page after trying for xxx seconds". Other pages work fine. IE works fine. If I log on as a different user safari works fine. If I am at work, or use an ethernet cable to connect my PB to the DSL modem at home safari works fine. The problem only shows up when I connect to the net through my wireless gateway, or through an ethernet cable connected to either my wireless gateway _or_ my OpenBSD firewall machine. Anyway, this seems like a _very_ strange situation to me, so any tips would be appreciated. Oh, this is safari 1.2.2 (v125.8) on: % uname -a Darwin harrison.local 7.4.0 Darwin Kernel Version 7.4.0: Wed May 12 16:58:24 PDT 2004; root:xnu/xnu-517.7.7.obj~7/RELEASE_PPC Power Macintosh powerpc PS Apparently this forum submission form is another one that has problems, although the main pages load just fine.
