Hi tazhon,

Welcome to Geeks to go! :)

What type of connection do you have and who is your provider? Sounds as if you're on a wireless connection and your connection isn't very reliable.

What site or sites are you getting them from?
Be specific so we can check everything. Vague or wide answers do not help us help you.

We may also need to know if you use a router. If so, what make and model?

Hey, I am having the same problem with Comcast. I figured I would just add to a related post. My problem occurs when I am trying to access web pages such as online job applications, bank information, etc. I assume it is the secure connections that I cannot connect to. The web page says "connection has been reset" and I can never load the page. I am using a router, it is a Lynksis Cynco router. I am using a wired connection, not wireless.

Hi puters r a pain,

Your issue does seem to be related but we're not for certain and it is always best to start a new thread for you problem then if you'd like link to a thread that may be similar please do so. We aren't even sure tazhon is using a router or not......yet.

Here's a link that I was saving for tazhon once the member returned to answer my and rshaffer61's questions. It may or may not be the answer for both of you.

How to change the MTU on a Linksys router ?

But please, in the future, start a thread and link back to the one you found to be similar to your issue.

Thank you!

Donna :)

Are you still having problems with your issue?
It has been 5 days since your last response and I was wondering if the issue has been resolved?
If so can you explain how it was resolved so others may be able to fix it if they have the same issue.
If not please let us know and we can continue with helping you to resolve the issue.
