Suddenly I cannot open up the same websites that I have always been able to open. It says "internet explorer cannot display this website." These are the same websites that I have been opening everyday for months.

Yes, I tried Firefox 5.0 the same exact thing, it's strange because I can open a lot of things with no problem. But as soon as I try to open The sites that visit every single day. They will not open in IE or forefox. Any suggestions, things I can try? What would be blocking me from opening these?

On my firefox, one of the sites that I try to open say " the web site does not supply identity information your connection to this website is not encrypted" What does this mean? And how do I correct it?

That message is irrelevant here. More info: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions/847516

Restart computer in Safe Mode with Networking and see if you have same issue.

I took my computer a mile from home, connected to a wifi. And all of my websites will open, perfectly. I go back home, reconnect to internet service, and they will not open. I unplugged my router, reset it. Still won't open. Makes no sense.

If you just unplugged the router it's not a real reset.

Turn the computer off.

On your router, you'll find a pinhole marked "Reset".
Keep pushing the hole, using a pencil, or a paperclip until all lights briefly come off and on.
NOTE. Simple router disconnecting from a power source will NOT do.

NOTE. You may need to re-check your router security settings, as described HERE

Sorry for the interruption, but was the wifi you were successful with the same Internet provider as your home service? Just wondering if it might possibly be blocked at the provider level for some reason. If after your router reset the problem continues, that is.

I think your ISP has blocked those sites for you. You can try opening them using a proxy server and verify if this is the case.

I would like to give this try, can you tell me how to use a proxy server? Do I just go to internet options, control panel, connection, LAN and click on proxy?

No, the wifi that I used, and was able to open the sites, was not the same internet provider as I had.

To prove that it is your ISP blocking the sites, you will need to use a proxy server to gain access to the sites. If you are successful that will prove it is your ISP blocking them.

How do I use a Proxy Server?

EDIT: You can try this method quickly: http://freeproxyserver.net/

Okay, I see that I have to enter a number, after I click on proxy. I don't know if it will matter what number. I picked one from united states Elite proxy. If I enter the number in there, will it automatically put in a port number?

I just went to www.hidemyass.com they let you do a google web search using their IP address. Guess what, one of my sites that I cannot open. Did open for me. Now what do I do?
