How come i cant log in and keep getting a login failed message?

I tried to log in using different viewers and I keep getting the same login failed message it says "Login failed. despite our best efforts, something unexpected has gone wrong.  Please check status.secondlifegrid.net to see if there is a known problem with the service.  if you continue to experience problems, please check your network and firewall setup" It happened yesterday too while they were doing maintenance for login systems but it ended so why is it still happening?

idk why, Grid Status is not report any problems.

 

Try changing your Starting Location.

 

Update if that does or does not work.

I haven't been able to login since Saturday.  Keep getting this error msg;  DNS could not resolve the host name.  My interenet is working fine otherwise.  Suggestions?

Wake up guys, looking at the recent entries to this and the viewer forum this seems to be a major problem, and  if people can't log in to sl they can't spend money here and ultimately loose interest and leave or go to a more stable world.  This is not in the best interest of SL, LL, the SL economy or anyone else involved and one would thing it would be a priority, but over the last couple of weeks it has, along with crashes gotten progressively worse and LL seems to have ignored the issue except for a bit of unscheduled maintainece, that by the way caused still more crashes, and it remains festering.

i tried everything, unplugging modem and router, rebooting the computer, closing potentially-blocking softwares like Peerblock, but nothing worked...


This seem to be a huge problem, and hopefully Linden Labs isn't ignoring this!

 

edit: i tried changing DNS servers as well with the Google public DNS, and it didn't worked. i tried flushing DNS cache, it didn't worked.

Look at all the maintenances lately, everything they say it should work properly from now on, but it's not! What's going on with SL's servers lately?

Me too. It says SL is not responding. This has been going on for several days. It needs to be fixed or I will be cancelling my account. Thanks
