LeRoy, unfortunately, a DNS failure happens too often with EI (and other sites). Each internet provider uses a DNS service to covert your www address into a site location on the internet. Some of the DNS services don't have EI in their database.
When I was using Hughes Net (satellite) they had their own DNS and getting on EI was often a challenge. Eric B uses Wild Blue and that causes a problem sometimes. I was in a hotel in Atlanta this week and their service used a DNS service that did not have EI in their database.
The solution is to use a known DNS service that has EI in their database. One of them is: http://www.freeproxyserver.ca/
. After it loads up you type in the EI address and you should be able to get on.
