I had problems before with Hotmail. I just couldn't load the main login page (but MSN page was ok). Than after reinstalling my system it was working. Few days ago we changed router for new one and from that moment I couldn't load hotmail page again, ebay.co.uk as well and I was able to log on my other email accounts, but I could't send any email. But other pages were alright. When I try to connect to any of the mentioned sites it is just loading, showing a bit of progress or not at all and then I get message: connection time out, or server reset (same in Firefox and IE). And I did not change anything in my internet settings. But I tried it from my flatmate's computer and it was working.
Before we changed the router I set laptop for my other friend (and it was working all right) and after we changed router she had the same problem here in my place and at hers as well (so I am not shure if the proglem was in our new router).
My computer is all right know, my friend sorted that out, but I can't get in touch with him soon (He just told me that t is a long talk ) and I need to sort my frend's laptop. And I have no idea, what was the problem (cookies, scripts, firewall, router???).
Thank for any help!
PS: on both computers there's XP system, Firefox and IE, and Java SE Runtime, Shockwave, Flash latest pluggins.
