The problem I have here guys is that some sites load in my browser, such as this one thankfully :flowers:, but others do not. Google works, Youtube works, but for example AOL.com does not work and neither does rays.mlb.com. Comcast.com loads, but Comcast.net does not, go figure. The site tries to load but times out and and I get this message in Firefox:

The connection was reset
The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

Those aren't the only sites that don't work I'm sure but those are the ones I have tested.

I have a linksys router
Every computer under the router's connection has the same problem
The problem occurs in Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Avant, so it's probably not the browser.

I have tried to reset the connection (repair it). I have unplugged the modem and the router but still no success.
I have also turned off NOD32 Antivirus but still hasn't fixed the problem.

My ISP is Comcast.

Could it be a virus or mal-ware?
Could it be Comcast?

Thanks for the help :thumbsup:

PS: The problem started this morning, never has happened before either.

Well the problem has "resolved" itself thankfully. The sites seem to open fine now. But I'm going to be cautious and watch for signs of malware or even a virus.
