It just acts like the site isn't there and comes up to that white page that says the page cannot be displayed. I noticed in the bottom corner it looks like my computer tries to connect with the IP address for dfwstangs but it just times out and wont let me in

Are you on broadband? Do you have any DNS server settings? (Go to Network Connections, click on the icon of the connection you use, go to Properties, click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)).
