Okay, I need some help! There was a brief thunderstorm near my house, no damage was done and only a few lightning bolts. but a short time after that, certain websites like Facebook, Tumblr, etc., are now showing up as text only, with only showing your picture and a wall of Times New Roman text. same goes for other websites. Only a certain few websites such as Youtube and TvTropes show up normally, while other websites such as Netflix and AOL will not even show up at all, only getting messages.


First, I thought it was the browsers, so I tried EVERYTHING, deleting caches, cookies, setting, EVERYTHING. But the same thing is happening, I may feel that the problem is with the router, but I want other peoples' opinion if this has also happened to them too. Thanks!

Hello! Are you working wireless? If you are, try plugging into router with a USB cable. Unplug the power to your router. Wait 30 seconds and plug it back it. You might want to give your internet provider a call and see if they can assist you. They may be able to reset your router.

What do you mean when you say that these websites are showing as "text only" ? There's no CSS (formatting, presentation, fonts, etc.) on these websites ?
