Early this month their was a short disruption in access to the Esri Maps button in ArcGIS for AutoCAD. The issue was resolved. As a reminder however it is good to know that you can also connect to those Esri maps by making a connection via the Add Service dialog box to the ArcGIS Online server http://services.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/services). There are other useful maps on that server more than just the 9 listed in the Esri Map gallery. The esri_addmapservicebyURL command and the AutoLISP (esri_map_add) function are useful alternatives.
