Problem with mail.yahoo.com

    Ever since I switched from Orcon to Slingshot, I've been having
    intermittent problems accessing Yahoo Mail (mail.yahoo.com).

    It seems to be when I'm downloading a reasonable amount of data using
    BitTorrent. It doesn't happen all the time, but when it does it only
    seems to be that particular site. I either get the usual "Page Not
    Found" error in IE, or a "DNS Gateway Timeout" error. It usually
    resolves itself after a few minutes, but it's happening often enough to
    become really annoying.

    Below is an output from tracert and ping:

    tracert mail.yahoo.com

    Tracing route to login.yahoo.akadns.net [209.73.168.74] over a maximum
    of 30 hops:

    Anyone got any ideas on what's happening? As I said, all other web
    sites seem to be fine.

    Same here. Quite annoying. My ISP is Bell-Sympatico (Canada).

    I think that it's Yahoo!'s issue. Maybe we should write to tech
    support?
