I'm having a wierd problem that is driving me mad.
lately I can't access most sites at random times (at other times I can) on my PC that is connected to an ADSL modem trough a 3com router. At first I assumed I have to give the router some rest, but after a nights rest its all the same. I also tryed clearing my internet cach and nothing works :dead:

The really wired thing is that it only happens on my PC, that is connected to the router with a normal network cable (not wifi) and everything is fine on the laptops that are connected trough a wierless connection to the same router :paranoid:

the only thing that comes to mind is your computer's a zombie and DoS'ing at those times hehe.

More real you can reset your router to see if that helps.

if you can confirm that the laptop surfes the net at the same time the desktop can't i would disable all programs in xp startup including firewall to see if any might be the problem

i use outpost firewall and i have actually needed to uninstall the thing to get my internet back. I think it got corrupted as the icon dissapeared from the tray

if i think of anything usefull i will post

Thanks egghead, I don't use a firewall except for routers firewall (and outpost would be my last choise :p ) so that isn't the problem.

Most of the time there are at least 2 computers using the internet (my and the neighbors laptop (god bless wierless networking :) ) and my neighbor has no trouble what so ever.
Also I forgot to mention that osnn and spammers-paradise (the sites I most frequently visit always work!

that is strange..
check your host file
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\

also open internet explorer and elect tools/internet options/connections/lan settings and see if your under a proxy

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
