Tethering blackberry cant connect to a webpage

As far as I can tell, I seem to be the only one with this particular problem. It all started when I bought a web space for my own personal use. I use my laptop a lot so I decided that through verizon I would get the plan to tether my BB curve 8330.

Everything was great until I tried to go to the page I had just purchased. It tells me through firefox that it is timing out. This is where it gets interesting though. If I go to my site through the blackberry's web browser there is no problem.

I've talked to verizon already and they are scratching their heads seeing as the same thing happens when they try it as well. Even the internal VW cards they are pushing in the new hp notebooks that they are selling will not go to the site.

This is a personal BB not on a corporate account. I tried to change my TCP/IP settings to use OPENdns servers, but that did not help find my site. I can go to the site if and when I can get a wifi connection, which does not happen often.

If anyone has any ideas as to what I can do to fix this, or if it’s just one of though "nothing we can do about it" things that I've grown to know about with verizon, I would greatly like to know.

The website is thisguybb.voodoouser.com. I am using Windows XP with SP2. Any other info you might need please le me know.

Re: Tethering blackberry cant connect to a webpage

I was able to access the site both on my BlackBerry browser and through IE.

The only stupid question is the one you don't ask before you reboot the BES.
