looks like it probably is something to do with my service provider, checked the status page and it says:
"Broadband customers with an IP address beginning with 82. may be experiencing problems accessing certain sites and services (a notable example being Yahoo Mail/Messenger). As stated in the previous posting, we have identified that the fault was due to a routing problem with a number of upstream Internet Service Providers. This was due to the fact that the IP ranges that have been allocated to us by Ripe had not yet been used, and for that reason had been blocked by certain ISP's. This is done by a list named the bogon filter that stops un-authorized ranges being routed over the Internet.
We are currently working to contact the Internet Service Providers concerned in order resolve this issue."
Thanks for the help anyway
