I have a recurring problem with my internet connection. My connection works for about a month, and then will cease working for about 2 weeks. Then picks up again. Here are the weird symptoms:
- Microsoft Outlook continues to function, i can send and receive emails
- Neither Internet Explorer nor Firefox can open a page.
- The speed of the connection is the same as when functioning 11.0 mbps
- The Packets, both sent and received, are very low, in the hundreds.

I don't know what causes it to start working again, but it just magically does after about 2 weeks. Anyone experience similar problems, or know what this could be?

you might try this tool http://iobit.com/AdvancedWindowsCarePersonal/index.html it fixes windows problems and also fixes harmful network settings.

it could also be your firewall that is blocking traffic
