    A few sites that where loading fine for me yesterday are well no longer loading for me nor on any other computer in the house. The internet works because I am posting this just a few sites won't load. They give me this The connection has timed out. Happens both on IE and firefox
    These sites are working fine for everyone else in other locations and on my phone.

    Windows 7 and I use firefox. I have tried a few things but they haven't worked

    thanks

    Who is your service provider?
    You said they are working on your phone...is that on the Wifi connection or 3G network?
    Can you list the websites that are being affected...maybe i can try my end

    Does it mention any DNS resolution errors?

    Does this website end with .se, per chance?

    As far as I understand no, all it says is The connection has timed out

    Do me a favour, open a command line and type in:

    Code:
    nslookup [Domain Name]
    where [Domain Name] is the domain for the site you can't access. E.g.

    Code:
    nslookup bbc.co.uk
    If this returns a result, then it's probably not a DNS issue. Try the following if you get a positive result:

    Code:
    tracert -d [FQDN]
    where [FQDN] is the fully qualified domain of the site you're trying to access. E.g.

    Code:
    tracert -d www.bbc.co.uk
    Does this complete, or does it crap out?

    Interesting. It managed to resolve the IP from the domain name when you did nslookup?

    far as I am aware. It gave me server www.routerlogin.com then address. Under that it gives non-authoritative answer, a list of like 6 ip then the aliases

    Not likely. Bit unusual really. Who's your ISP? Tried using a proxy just to check to see if it's your ISP or not?

    I'm surprised you can get on Google with that...

    Bit odd really. I can't think of anything else to troubleshoot for the moment. It looks to be a telco/server side issue, so there's not much more you can do. Perhaps someone else on that ISP can check to see if they can access those sites?

    lol I blame the parents for not wanting to change to other companies because they get such a great deal lol
    I don't have a clue really everything I have read on google seems to be a problem with firefox on 1 computer

    I dunno what a telco/ server issue could be. I don't know anyone on the same ISP and every time to call them you get a call centre with some reading off a script which is annoying
