    Hey guys. I've got a bit of a problem going on with my internet on my PC. There are a few websites that will not open for me, one of these being my college site, which I need access to weekly. I'm not sure what started this but whenever I try to go on the sites, in the bottom left hand corner of firefox it will say "Looking Up (name of site)" and then I'll get the message, "Server not found."

    I immediately tried the website on my Ipod touch as I needed onto it at the time, but it won't load up on that either. Yet when I try the website anywhere else e.g college or a friends house, it works fine. I use the same router to get the internet on my Ipod as I do the PC so it may be a problem with that. It's definetly not a problem with the websites as everyone else can get them fine. Here they are anyway -


    I hope someone can help me with this as soon as possible, thanks in advance!
