Same problem here. Happens w/ Firefox and IE. Two Thinkpads wirelessly connected to Linksys WRT54GL. Other sites besides Google seem fine. Clearing DNS cache didn't help.

Changing my DNS server from automatic to w/ as backup fixed my problem. I have RCN high speed internet.

Are you on RCN, Mongusa?

Here's how to change DNS servers for Win XP.

Probably something similar for Vista. Good luck.

OK, good to know that this is probably a problem at RCN--not at home, eg, malware.

Here's another link for changing DNS servers. and are common alternatives to ISP DNS servers.

Just type those numbers in for the preferred and alternate DNS servers.

When I entered the numbers above I lost all connection to the internet. When I restablished connection problem remained. However when I logged on this morning, the problem disappeared. I guess it was a problem with RCN. (grrr!.)
(I actually lose connection with RCN 3 or 4 times a day for no reason, connection resumes after about 15 minutes to 1/2 hour. Now this. I used to really like their service.)

Anyway, thanks for responding so promptly and for all your help. It is greatly appreciated.
