    Well, sort of. Ever since yesterday, everytime I try to get here, it says "androidforums.com" couldn't be found or whatever. Every other site works though. I've tried it on my laptop, old Dell, iPod Touch, and even my Eris and none of them can get to the site. However, it gets really strange here.

    If I tether my Eris to my laptop via PDAnet, and my Eris is connected to my home wifi, it works perfectly. Even though I can't get to PDAnet from the phone browser itself, if I apparently tether it to my laptop, the site works perfectly fine on the laptop.

    To sum it up how it apparently works.

    Computer/device -> wireless router -> androidforums.com = doesn't exist
    Computer -> Droid Eris -> wireless router -> androidforums.com works perfectly fine.

    My phone can see the site fine over 3G however, so it must have something to do with our internet connection. But if that was the case, why can I tether the phone so it can act as a wireless adapter, and it works fine?
