[Ma-linux] Bizarre Browser Behavior

A couple of weeks ago neither of my standard browsers, Firefox(sorry!
Iceweasel) or lynx could access a site for which I am responsible,
www.waifllc.org. I spent 12 hours chivvying the hosting firm, until,
quite suddenly, my access was restored. NB: everything else worked
fine during this 24 hour period. When my access was restored, I
shrugged, and apologized to the friends I'd been chivvying.
Now the exact same thing has happened, but with Wikipedia.org. ! ? ! ?
I point my browser at wikipedia.org, and I get:
Iceweasel can't find the server at www.wikipedia.org.
Again: I can get everything else -- youtube, my site mentioned above,
gmail, political sites . . . Only wikipedia goes blank on me.
Has this happened to others? Any suggestion about the problem? (I've
rebooted; not a help).
I'm running Debian etch.
TIA for suggestions/fixes
