Afternoon all,

I've noticed something last night that bothered me ....

Following on from my problems with accessing e-bay as mentioned in my previous post, it now appears that this issue is affecting both of the computers in the house when using the wireless broadband.

Oddly, both of us work for the same company, and when we bring our laptops back into work and connect via the office LAN we dont experience the same issues.
I understand there will be proxy settings applied to the office LAN, but is it possible that there is an error caused by settings as applied by our ISP at home ??

Also, annoyingly, when i tried to access www.bleepingcomputer.com from home, i entered the address corretly into the address bar, only to be redirected to a search results page, as if i had typed it into Google.
Then, when clicking on the link for the site, i was getting a page not found error ....

Again .. on the same computer, in work, i can now access the page successfully.

It seems our issues are not limited to e-bay as certain sections of other websites will not load, .... but yet a diagnostic on the equipment suggests that the system is working perfectly, and there are no problems.

All very strange and frustrating that it applies to a seemingly limited selection of sites.

Any thoughts ??
If there really was a god, then why is my ass the perfect height for kicking ???

Disconnect from the internet and reset your router. Then give it a strong password.
Have you updated your AV tools and done any scans recently?
