    There are multiple websites that I cannot connect to, facebook, rottentomatoes, youtube, to name a few. Others seem perfectly fine. A few seem okay, but seem to be running slowly.

    This is the case for both my computer (on which I am running Windows 7), which is connected directly to the router, *and* mobile devices which are connected wirelessly.

    On my computer I have tried using several different browsers to no avail, but when I used the TOR browser to proxy, I was able to access them.

    I apologize if this has been asked, but I haven't been able to find anything this specific.

    Thank you.

    It tries connecting for about 20 seconds and gives me "This webpage is not available".

    Error code: ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT

    Firefox:
    The connection has timed out

    The server at facebook.com is taking too long to respond.

    The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
    If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
    If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

    IE:
    This page can’t be displayed

    •Make sure the web address http://www.rottentomatoes.com is correct.
    •Look for the page with your search engine.
    •Refresh the page in a few minutes.
