Hi, I'm finding it increasingly difficult to access certain websites, I get the following message... Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): Unknown error.
For instance; I can open the National Lottery homepage without any trouble. However, when I try to log in to my account the aforesaid message pops up (eventually). I've de-fragged, cleared the cache and temporary internet files, all to no avail. Hope someone can help...
Russell.

Russell, more information would be helpful. Which internet browser are you using..IE7, IE8, Google Chrome, Firefox, etc? Are you using more than one? Which operating system are you running...WinXP, WinVista, Win7 or.....???

The error message itself seems to refer back to a problem with Google Chrome and Firefox browsers. Does that ring any bells? This Google search might help you track down an answer.

It probably wouldn't hurt to update and run scans with your security programs, too.

Hi Rosie,

Thanks for your advice. However, I seem to have solved the problem and the problem was with the router. Netgear DG 834G. In the WAN set up the MTU had for some reason changed itself to 1468, I returned it to the default setting of 1400 and hey presto! All is now well.
Prior to this I'd tried several browsers and all suffered with the same problem so I sort of guessed it was the router.
I'd recently installed 'Tune-Up Utilities 2010' , I'm not 100% sure but it may well have been running this that caused the change, who knows?

Regards,
Russell.
