Connection to Internet Keeps Resetting Itself

    For the past 3 days, my connection to the internet has been resetting itself.

    I get the following message: The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

    * The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Please try again in a few minutes.

    * 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.

    Now, this happens with only certain sites. The sites it mainly happens to are Playlist.com, MyYearbook.com, and Vampirefreaks.com. I can be on youtube and facebook, and it will be perfectly fine. But once I go to one of the other 3 sites, I get that message, and it completely makes me incapable of browsing the web. I'm forced to close out of everything, and wait at least 5-10 minutes.

    I've looked around seeing what could be the problem. I've deleted cookies, cache, temporary internet files. I've made sure Firefox was permitted to access the web; used a different browser. Nothing helps. I even did system restoration, but all it did was take me back exactly 3 days ago, when the problem first began.

    I use a lap top, called Asus. It's a 64-bit, Windows 7 operated. I connect to my parents' internet. Our service provider is Comcast. We called them to see if they were having a problem and they said no, everything was perfectly fine on their end; and they refreshed the modem, or whatever you call it.

    Sorry this is long, I was just trying to be descriptive as possible. Any help would be appreciated. I'm not good with computers at all. Thank you.

    Please show the following for when internet access is working well and also for when you are "incapable of browsing the web."

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
    (For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

    Type the following command:


    [Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.
