Can't connect to some websites/game servers

February 2, 2010 at 20:50:52
Specs: Windows XP
Usually every other month my internet will lag out, and then come back, but only letting me access some sites, but will not let me log back on my game or certain sites (game is World of Warcraft). This happens with Ventrilo as well (voice chat app), the main one i use will not be available, but other ones I can connect to.

I've disconnected myself from the router and plugged in directly, and it has happened again.

I have cleared internet cache, etc. for web browser, but had no effect..

Try recycling the power on your router. Unplug it, count to ten slowly and plug it back in and see if that doesn't improve things. If you have a separate modem, and recycling the power on the router doesn't fix the problem, try recycling the power on the modem.

If neither fixes it, contact your ISP's support people as your modem may be having issues.

Also, your router could be having issues but check the modem first since most ISP's can remote into the modem and run some basic tests.

The only way to troubleshoot router issues is to get another one that you know works properly and use it for a while. If the problem goes away, it was your router. If not, it's something else.
