This is weird, there are 2 websites I am trying to go to www.du.edu and www.colostate.edu both collegiate websites. I am on line, can pull up websites, except these 2. I have no idea why. My brother tried the sites and was able to get in. I thought it was my computer but I tried my wife's and same thing. I have my ISP working on it but what gives? I can only think it has something to do with our network or ISP...

How do I figure that out? I have not put any sites on this list, is IE capable of doing that via some glitch?

None there. I have a firewall on my modem but I think it is basic and windows firewall. I am waiting to hear back from my ISP, we did some pinging and it was breaking down along the way. No idea why these sites but I will post back when I hear from them.

It appears to be a problem beyond my ISP. They said there is a routing issue with backbones. Guess that is internet lingo for the line is breaking down somewhere...

I am at my home, in my home office. But it is fixed now, I was just able to log in. I think the Internet road crew fixed the pothole I kept falling in to. Thanks all.
