Page Cannot Be Displayed/DNS Error using EditThisPage.com

Win2K Pro, IE 5/5.5, Excite@Home cable modem.
When editting or creating a page with more than a paragraph or two of
content on my Manila site at http://newjazzthing.editthispage.com, the
browser thinks for quite a while (about 1 minute) and then returns the 'The
Page Cannot Be Displayed' page with the additional 'DNS error' message at
the bottom of the page (standard IE error page). I have no problems when I
try to download (via HTTP) pages or even when I click the Edit This Page
button on a large page. The problems seems to be when I am sending a large
amount of data (either something in a new document or just a quick edit to
an existing page or even a Picture) back to the EditThisPage.com server.
I've also seen this happen on other web sites when I fill out a form with
more than a few fields on it.
The problem seems to be related to the amount of data I am sending via HTTP.
This all started occurring after I got my Excite@Home cable connection
through Cox Cable and was no longer going through dial-up.
If anyone has similar experience or some idea of how this can be remedied,
it would be truly appreciated. I've done quite a bit of searching on the
Inet for answers and just recently wiped my entire drive and reinstalled
Win2K Pro, to no avail...still getting the error.
