  1. I have 2 desktop computers and a laptop using a cable modem and a router. For some reason all of a sudden I can't connect to the internet. I get the message page cannot be displayed. I have pinged several things to assure that I am getting a connection. I am getting a network connection. I have tried pinging yahoo and that is all good. I just can't connect to the internet. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    it is not happening with the laptop. At first it was happening with just one of the desktops and as of yesterday after I did troubleshooting with the cable co. now the other desktop internet isn't working either. The cable co just had me unplug modem and router to reset and she had me ping some stuff to make sure I was getting a connection.
