As of a few days ago it seems my Internet connection has been unable to access a few sites and has been acting weird. It seems to have started one day while I was on Xbox Live where I got disconnected and my connection went dead. When it happens I can remedy the situation by restarting the modem/router. Although restarting everything got my connection working again, what's different this time is I'm unable to visit certain sites. A few are major websites like Microsoft sites and the smaller sites like w3schools are some of the ones I time out on. I'm able to visit sites like LPA with no problems and pretty much any other site seems to work just fine. It doesn't seem to matter what device I use (tested on PC, Mac & iPod). This leads me to believe it's either a problem with my modem/router or ISP but I want to know if it could be anything else interfering. I did a system restore to a date before all of this happened but nothing seems to have changed so if anyone has any insight as to what may be going on, I'd appreciate it. Thanks. edit: It looks like I can still access the sites through a web proxy thing (those things people use to browse anonymously). I've stumbled on a few more websites that aren't working for me: microsoft.com (without the www before it), xbox.com/xboxlive.com, playstation.com, nin.com, break.com.
