Still not sure why it happend... Possibly a conflict with a recent MS critical update. I had my router set up with WPA2/AES which had worked fine for months. Tonight I switched it to...
Well.... ebay, yahoo, and myspace are working now for whatever reason, but once site still refuses to load.
www.athenet.net. This was my dialup internet provider and I still have my email through them.
I cannot access their webpage, or their mail server (via Outlook Express) when I'm...
Yeah... t'was just a joke.
Update: Fix seems to have been temporary, I'm back to not being able to load yahoo.com, myspace.com, ebay.com, and possibly other sites. Very frustrating. :mad:
ebay hangs on "include.ebaystatic.com"

Well... I have a problem with conflicting apps, so rather
than having and "advanced" button that would lead me

I just set up a wireless network using a Belkin Pre N router.
I have all of the security options enabled. I'm also running

uploads are terrible. I also just downloaded a batch of 12 MS updates tonight.
