Help please
For some reason I can't seem to access certain web sites. Nothing dodgy, for example certain banks, www.halifax.co.uk or general sites like www.hotmail.com. Or when i called my service provider - BT, they asked me to try www.bt.com, worked fine but then they asked me to go to www.bt.com/gta and it wouldn't access the site.
I have tried on several laptops, including a new Macbook which I recently purchased. So its not a setting on my computer - although my very annoying service provider kept trying to take me through the same diagnostics. I can get into Yahoo, BBC, Nasdaq, Abbey etc etc, but certain sites nothing happens. Or I get so far on certain sites and then it won't let me any further. It doesn't seem to be anuything to do with the security settings as I can get into my bank account etc no problem. I called my service provider and they had no clue.
When I type in the URL basically the little green bar starts to tick accross, gets to about 3 bars and then just sits there. After a few minutes it goes to 'The page cannot be displayed'. Via Safari on my Mac same thing, it tries to go to the site - I can see that. For example, if I type in www.hotmail.com it changes the title to the 'http://login.live.com/?id=2 then just hangs.
As the problem seems to affect all computers that I attach to my router I can only assume the fault lies somewhere there. Its a Belkin Wireless Router and I can see it by typing in the IP address but have no clue what I should be looking for from there.
Any ideas - I am hoping its something simple!
