    Strangest thing...we thought that our internet was down and we tried all of the usual steps...restarting computer, modem, router, etc. and nothing helped. Our other computer worked so I tried switching ports and same thing--this computer seemingly was down while the other was fine. On a whim I selected a random web page instead of the homepage and it opened up. Every single website we tried works just fine but not the home page. We changed the home page, no luck. So what happens is I click on the little Mozilla (or IE) icon on my desktop, the page opens but is blank and it shows connecting, connecting, connecting forever...it stays completely blank but if I put in another website, it pops right up. It even works if I manually type in whatever we have set as our homepage. We checked both the Control Panel and Internet>Tools>Options and everything appears kosher. Please help!
