In case the following info is useful: Operating System: Win2K Pro with Service Pack 4 Browser: IE 6 ISP: Insight Communications Modem: Motorola SB5100 Router: Netgear RP 614v2 Ethernet Card: 3COM 3CR990-TX-97 My cable broadband connection keeps on dropping whenever I visit http://sports.yahoo.com/ After I visit this site I cannot surf other pages even if they are on other domains. And the only way I can restore the connection is to reboot the system. releasing and renewing the DHCP using ipconfig /release and /renew does not work. What could be the reason? In fact I am able to post this message only after rebooting the system after another unsucessful attempt to browse that yahoo subdomain. As long as I do not visit that subdomain everything is fine. Please advise!
