I've been trying to get to www.ryobitools.com to register my new saw
and I can't get it to appear. Does anyone know if this is the correct
site name (it's on the information that came with the saw) or what
might be going on?
Thanks for any info.
Well, the front page loaded and appears to be the right site. But,
the graphics are _HUGE_ and take forever...
The link at the bottom to the registration does appear to have a
problem -- I'd suggest finding the contact info and sending complaint
to web guru and see if get a response. I would assume there's a
regular registration card w/ the tool???
BTW, warranties can't be revoked for lack of registration, but
recalls, etc., are dependent on them...
Amen to that... :(
Did the link to "register" load? Here w/ dialup after some
(unmeasured but long, I left it loading while ate lunch) time it was
still simply spinning its wheels when returned...if it was still

I still can't get the site to load, either with SeaMonkey (my
preferred browser) or IE. I just did a tracert on it and got 'Unable

to contact my ISP.

I have had times when I thought that might be the problem, but I
really don't how it works.
For the end-users (you and me) it's the ISP that maintains a local
name server and they can break. The ISP gets it's data from root
servers, they are trickled down (propagated).
You *don't* have to use your ISP's name server though. If you
manually configure a name server in Window's "connection properties"
you can enter any publicly available server. I sometimes use 22.214.171.124
and 126.96.36.199 to test if my ISP's is broken or not. There are some
public servers listed here:
Thanks for the server information. I was able to get to the site
using it's IP address, so I called my ISP and the tech had me change
the preferred DNS server address to 188.8.131.52 and the URL then worked.
I then went to register the product and it didn't even require the
serial number, so I don't really see the value in filling out their
