My toolbar is not working anymore and I can't access google.com with IE5.5 any longer (the browser just hangs up). I can still access www2 and www3 though, and www with netscape. I can also get to Google using [216.239.33.100,...]
[216.239.35.100,...]
[216.239.37.100,...]
[216.239.39.100...]
and [216.239.51.100...] - just not by using www.google.com. It just hangs up and I eventually get a 'The page cannot be displayed, Cannot find server or DNS Error'

I recently deleted a lot of cookies, could this be involved?

Thanks for any help.

2 of those ip's listed have comma's in them which make them invalid - was this a typo on your behalf or are they the ones your trying to use?

Everything is fine from eastern Canada. (exept I should be sleeping now)

Commas are obviously not working. Accessing throught listed domains still redirects for me.

Must be a temporary glitch between your computer and Google. Clear cache and replug. That must fix it.

The commas were just separating one from the other in the message, I didn't realize they had became part of the link.

I'm guessing the google access problem is either related to my IE browser or my ISP. It's been going on for a few days now, so I don't think it is a cache problem. I thought it could have been related to my getting rid all my prior cookies, at least the part about the toolbar. I was hoping that someone here may had this happened to them and would have some ideas. If not, I might try uninstalling the toolbar and then reinstalling it.

Yeah, sounds like your IP had a problem updating it's name server data. I've seen it happen before. Usually is corrected within 72 hours.

keyplyr - you must have been right, because all of a sudden I'm able to get to google.com again, and my toolbar is working, and I didn't change anything.

Good idea, the google toolbar may implement a kind of dns cache of google's IPs so even without a working DNS google would be reachable :).
