Not hardware problem..but odd internet problem.

  1. This isn't really a big thing, and it's kinda stupid, but it's kinda bugging me. Whenever I try to access, whichever browser I'm using will sit there for a few seconds, and then my cable modem will go kaput. All status lights go out, and it recconects, but I never can get to the site. Also, when, say, I'm at a forum, and someone links to a picture from FTJ, the browser will try to load the picture, but the same thing happens...modem disconnects.

    Any ideas?

    Do you have any firewalls/programs that'll block access to certain sites?

    It could be that the site has been added to the "do not allow" list, and as such would be blocked...

    Though it doesn't exactly tell us why the modem restarts....

    Well, I do have a router...I checked everything in the router's configuration, and nothing is unusual. It's not like I could block the site anyway...I'd need an IP. So I'm still clueless.
