All of a sudden a couple of my bookmarked web sites won't open. The circle on my computer screen (top left) keeps turning like it's going to open and it never does. This happens on both IE and Firefox... Ubuntu or Windows doesn't matter. One site is called www.amstock.com and the other is the CNET bandwidth speed test site (http://reviews.cnet....4-7254_7-0.html)I am hard wired to the router and then modem. My laptop will not connect either. I called the company (American Stock Transfer) to ask them if they were having any problems and they said no. Is this some sort of virus or a router setting? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Gmr,

Have you tried to power cycle your modem and router?

Unplug the modem and router from the wall socket and allow a few minutes for the memory to clear before plugging the modem back in. Wait a couple minutes then plug in your router.

Let us know if that helps.

Donna :)

I got the pages to load by disabling the Security/ SPI firewall protection on my linksys router. I'm not sure of the consequences of doing this but I need to get to the websites for now. If anyone knows a better way to hurdle this please let me know and thanx for the input!
