The previous answers are right. But, it can be caused by other problems too.

You should always look at Second Life Grid Status Reports to see if a grid wide problem has come up. It can take a couple of hours for a problem to appear there. So, keep checking while you try to resolve the problem.

On Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 5 or 6 AM until 10 to noon the servers that run regions are being cycled through a shutdown, software updare, and restart. If you try to log into a region that is in the cycle, you will get a cannot connect. You can get around that.

Before loging in open (top menu) Me->Preferences->General and enable Start Location: Show at Login. This will place a new input field on your login screen. You can type in any region name and try a login. Pooley, Furball, Denby... are all good regions to try. It may take more than one try.

If you are consistantly having this problem, consider other problems like: Ghosts and Connection Issues: I Can’t Login and Troubleshoot Your #SL Connection – This covers some oddball SL problems like ghost avatars and how to do your own ghost busting. Fortunately most of the gosting problems have been solved.
