Trouble accessing single web site at home

Being a fan of the TV series 'Lost', I have been avidly following the new Lost Experience online. The problem is that I can not seem to load the web site www.thehansofoundation.org from my home computer. I can do it at work just fine, but not on my PC at home.

I am running XP SP2 and have tried using both IE and Firefox. Neither browser will open the web site. I get the server not found errors when I try. All other web sites I try always open. Here is what I have tried so far, with none of it making a difference:

1) cleared temporary internet files, cache, cookies for both browsers
2) updated to the latest version of Macromedia flash software (I believe this website uses a lot of flash programming)
3) turned off my Internet Security software including the firewall
4) scanned for viruses and spyware and removed anything found
5) ran Hijack This and didn't see anything in particular that would block access to this web site
6) typed the link manually into both browsers
7) clicked on links from other web sites to thehansofoundation.org

I would appreciate any feedback you might have about troubleshooting this issue. I would really like to be able to access this web page from home. Thanks in advance for your help!

Got it to work now. Just had to reboot my cable modem. I just wish I had thought of doing that first now.
