Some websites such as Google.com and Geekstogo.com I can log on to every time. Websites such as Comcast.net or Myspace.com or Facebook.com I get "Website cannot be displayed" almost every single time. It is impossible to check my Comcast email because the website can never be displayed, but I can check my Gmail every time. The computer downstairs has no problems and is connected to the same router. Any ideas as to what could be causing these connection problems?

Yes, I switch between Firefox and IE because when one is not working the other usually is. It's such a pain! especially when I have to log in to everything twice lol.

Yes, I tried Safe Mode with Networking and I could still not load the pages that I normally have trouble with.

Turn off computer. Disconnect router, and modem from power source for 30 seconds.
Power them back on.
Restart computer.

If that doesn't work, bypass router, and connect computer straight to the modem.

If that doesn't work...
Go Start>Run (Start search in Vista), type in:
cmd
Click OK (in Vista, while holding CTRL, and SHIFT, press Enter).

In Command Prompt window, type in following commands, and hit Enter after each one:
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew


Restart computer.

If that doesn't work...
Go Start>Run (Start search in Vista), type in:
cmd
Click OK (in Vista, while holding CTRL, and SHIFT, press Enter).

At Command Prompt, type in:
netsh int ip reset reset.log
Hit Enter.
Type in:
netsh winsock reset catalog
Hit Enter.

Restart computer.


If that doesn't work...
Download, install, and run WinSockFix: http://www.softpedia...inSockFix.shtml
Restart computer, and check again.
