"swfobject is undefined" typically is a problem with the coding of the site.
 I was able to get to it, but  I did not try to Login to it.  How are you getting to beatport, from someone's link from their website or your own link?

Can you give us the link you are using?

Interesting, but again it leads towards the website. Have you tried clearing your cache or your dns cache?
Start->Run->Cmd and enter
ipconfig /flushdns

Can you get to https://www.beatport.com/en-US/html/content/home/detail/1/welcome_to_beatport

Sorry, had to sleep and work and holiday.

What error do you get when you try to log in?

Do you have javascript enabled?
Have you cleared your browser cache?


Most importantly, what security programs do you have installed?

Who is your ISP?  Might they be blocking?

Is this your network? Or a work network?

Do you have a firewall installed?  I don't care if it is running, is it installed and what is it?

Let's test your flash player.
Although I believe it is a site issue or your ISP issue or your Router may be blocking something, since anything you plug into it can't view the page properly.

You mention that Java is enabled,but this is regarding javascript and Flash, so let's key in on javascript.

Confirm in IE ->Tools->Internet Options-> Security ->Custom Level and scroll down to Scripting and check these settings under Scripting
Active Scripting - Enable
Scripting of Java applets - Enable

those settings work for me with my IE settings set to Medium High security.

And in Firefox, just check Tools->Options->Content->Enable JavaScript

After that, have you checked with your ISP to see if they are having any issues?

If you are telling me that every computer you plug into this internet connection gets this error, then it  seems like it must be either the website having issues, or something between your computer and the  site, not your computer itself.
Let's try a new DNS for you. Follow the instructions here to see if it will help.
https://www.opendns.com/start?device=windows-xp  Follow the instructions, reboot and test it out.

The new dns worked because it didn't have a blocking action, or something stuck in it's cache.  It could also be that your older dns was down or corrupt or stuck.

But  I do not know what your dc++ is. Can you elaborate?

Of course, a file sharing program.  No wonder you had issues.

Have you scanned your system for malware, spyware, and viruses?

Your welcome, Jason.

The issue was that some of the caching DNS servers were not updating with the correct DNS entries. We made some changes on our old DNS system to force the update to our new DNS system, which has resolved the issue.

If anyone else is having issues with the Beatport site, please do not hesitate to contact our customer support services so that they can get the issue resolved.
