Hi, I only noticed this problem a few days ago. I tried downloading ESET online scanner but whenever I click download or go to the direct link for the file I get a blank screen and the download doesn't start. Even if I "Save link as" it says Starting.. in download manager but never starts. I cannot view videos on websites like Twitch.Tv even though my flash is updated but I can view videos on YouTube. I also cannot visit hotmail.com even though it says loading the page isn't loading. This also happens on both of my computers.

I think I may have had a faulty router or my router had a virus some how because I switched my routers and I fixed my problem.

Sounds good. Fir that other router you may need to reset the router to its default configuration. This can be done by inserting something tiny like a paper clip end or pencil tip into a small hole labeled "reset" located on the back of the router. Press and hold down the small button inside until the lights on the front of the router blink off and then on again (usually about 10 seconds). If you donít know the router's default password, you can look it up HERE

You also need to reconfigure any security settings you had in place prior to the reset. Check out this site here for video tutorials on how to properly configure your router's encryption and security settings. You may also need to consult with your Internet service provider to find out which DNS servers your network should be using.

If you need specific help with this ,please ask in Networking.
