    I’m trying to register a new blog and every title I enter into the “Blog Address” field gets an error message that says “An error has occurred (666).” What’s going on?

    The blog I need help with is crm429.wordpress.com.

    Log out, clear your browser cache and cookies, restart your browser and then try again.

    BTW, 666 errors are modem errors and have nothing to do with wordpress.

    sShut down your computer completely, wait for at least 1 minute (5 would be better) boot up your computer, reboot your modem (if exeternal) and then try again.

    These problems are usually due to issues with your own computer and/or browser and/or the way you connect to the internet and to WordPress.com. Please try what TSP has suggested and these troubleshooting steps and see if they clear up your problem. Blogging and Troubleshooting

    Also note that we require the URL for the blog to which your refer when you post to this forum starting with http:// so we can locate the blog. If you wish you can link your username to your blog.

    It’s very easy to do. Here’s how to link your username to your blog in your blog Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Website‘ and fill in the the complete URL for your wordpress.com blog starting with http:// and then save changes.

    If you look at the link I provided you will see that 666 errors are modem related errors. WordPress cannot fix your modem.

    I used Google search and found this information for you.

    666 is a dial-up networking(DUNS) error code. In latest versions of OS(XP, Vista or Windows 7), some of the errors can also come for connections other than traditional dial-up modem connections: they may come with DSL or Virtual private networking connections that does not have/involve dial-up.

    This DUNS Errors can be resolved by making the properties correct for your dial-up networking connections. Hope you would able to fix the problem. Please note that permanent damage may occur to your PC if 666 Error is left alone and not repaired immediately.
