    Can you see it using IE9?  Then you could use its Network Capture tool.  Typically that would show you that the host is not responding.   So, then, you could try spoofing a different User-Agent string.   Then the host may respond and the content may be sufficiently compatible that IE can render it.   You can get third-party tools to do both functions but using IE9 would be simplest if it proved the point.   Otherwise try using Fiddler2 to do the capture and UAPick to do the spoofing.   Note that Fiddler is a proxy so that may change the timing and the symptom.  For a more transparent trace involving IE8 you would have to use a full TCP packet tracer such as NetMon or WireShark.
