Today for whatever reason, my network has decided not to allow me to visit mozilla.org in my browser (or mozilla.com, firefox.com..).
I can ping the websites with cmd just fine.
This happens on all my computers in the house, one is connected to the router through an Ethernet cable, the others are wirelessly connected.
None of these sites are in my HOSTS file, on any computer.
Using ipconfig /flushdns does not work.
Shutting off my router, waiting a while, and turning it back on does not work.
I can access mozilla.org using an online proxy site (like people use at work/school).
I can access them if i change my DNS to opendns. You may of heard of it, just google it if not.
It doesn't work in Firefox, or IE (using default DNS).
All machines involved are more than likely malware free, as I am notoriously careful.
I happens on XP and Vista.
Here is the exact error that firefox gives:
The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.
The network link was interrupted while negotiating a connection. Please try again.
I'm guessing it's a DNS problem but I am fairly noobish with network things. I've tried everything I know to do.
Anybody have any idea what this is about?
note: everything else works as usual. it's only mozilla.org and sites that redirect to it that I am having problems with.
note2: it's not the firewall either.
