Hi all,

I'm having trouble accessing quite a few NZ hosted sites, eg stuff.co.nz, nzherald.co.nz, xnet.co.nz, orcon.net.nz... However, some sites seem fine, eg trademe, and google. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

I am on ADSL with Xnet, in central Auckland.

Thanks for the reply, Joe.
Hmm, I wonder if it's just my ISP playing up in that case? Which is strange, as I don't seem to be having any issues with accessing other sites, eg PressF1.

Guess I'll have to wait 'till morning to find out more.
