also bogus credentials do the same thing.
its like the server isn't sending a response back.

Things Ive attempted so far:

Killed Firewall.
Enabled DMZ(security Risk Will not leave it open)Rebooted Router.
Ran in administrative mode.
Disabled A/V.

Rebooted...no go

I think either my ISP is refusing to relay, or the Server is refusing to send a reply.

its been working fine for 2 months...don't understand why it does this now...probably because i actually want to play it.

There's one more thing I know of (cuz my friend went through this)

Set security in IE to lowest and allow all cookies. If not, I'm afraid I'm stumped ^^;

You have to have some version of IE. The ffxiv login script runs off of it and if it was working before you definitely have IE. Go to Controlpanel and find Internet options and make the changes suggested above.

Many thank's, For all who posted. it was indeed cookies.

how it got set to high is beyond me, probably something do do with me backing up my Data.

IE was an opt in Browser, between Firefox and Opera. so thank you for that tidbit about internet options under control panel.
