Can anyone help?
Other web pages open quickly and SMH did until about a month ago.
TPG say there is nothing wrong with my connection. IMAC and MACBOOK both bring the same result regardless of whether I use wireless or Ethernet connection. I have airport extreme and a belkin modem.
This is driving me crazy - started to read some forums and did the traceroute below - don't really know what is says except the SMH host is not responding ( I think)

I experience EXACTLY the same thing on my Macbook & iMac, but i have Optus internet. It's rather annoying, but i mainly use my iPad for SMH thesedays anyway :)

Can get it just fine but nothing worth reading other than trying to save Zsa Zsa's leg and AMI 'bonk longer' is a crook company operated by smarties and has gone into receivership.

I did have a problem where I couldn't access a certain site for a while, but I flushed the DNS cache and it fixed it; try this:

Open the Terminal app on the Mac (It's in Applications/Utilities) and type:

sudo dscacheutil -flushcache

Then press enter and enter your user password and press enter as prompted (your password will be "invisible" as you type it so type it carefully) and the DNS cache should be flushed, if you get an error than try again.
This is what the Terminal should look like when you're finished: http://cl.ly/3u1y1J3n1j0e023u0m2I/content
Then see if the SMH site works, if not, then you may need a new DNS server.
