I have work laptop (IBM thinkpad) running Windows XP Professional. I use this laptop in the office (through a wired network) and at home (wirelessly). I am able to access gmail and other such application from work without a problem. This leads me to belive it does not have to do with any of my IE or computer settings (BTW this occurs with IE and Firefox), and I've tried all the "can't connect to secure sites" fixes (Windows Live Hotmail works fine, all the settings look correct).
At home I access the internet though a Netgear MR814 router (to a Verizon DSL modem). So I thought maybe the router is the issue (and it may still be). The interesting thing is my wife is able to connect to gmail, etc. through the same router (wirelessly) with her computer without a problem.
Other interesting/helpful information:
I connect to my work's network from home via a VPN, but turning this off does not seem to help.
I use McAfee Virus scan. I have run ad-aware and spybot, and both have found nothing.
I've tried fooling with the port forwarding on the router, but can't find any good information on what ports (if any) would need to be forwarded.
If I login to google at work, then come home I seem to still be logged in iGoogle comes up and I can see a preview of my gmail, but as soon as I try to actually go into my gmail I am unable to.
Also I think I remember getting gmail to work from home, but it was at completely random times (I hadn't made any changes). And this has not occured in a while.
All in all, very strange, but I feel it is something easy I am just overlooking. Any help or ideas are welcome.
Thanks in advance.
