Flush your DNS cache and any browser history.  Then try connecting via IP
rather than url.  I just ping'd "www/paypal.com" and that url resolved to
66.211.168.209 from where I sit, which is in snowy Milwaukee.  Can anybody
collaborate that address as a valid one for PayPal?

Yes, that gets me to:
https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr

and I can login to my account.
