new win7 computer won't load some websites

November 23, 2011 at 13:48:23
Specs: Windows 7 64bit, Pentium R G620
Brand new win764 bit machine won't load some websites, other load fine Set up yesterday. Problem on IE & Google Chrome. Turned off Norton and windows firewall, downloaded Java, flushed DNS. The sites which won't load seem arbitrary (NFL.com, mozilla.org and others) I can ping these sites from command prompt with 0 losses. Troubleshooter finds no issues with the Network Adapter Driver. I have reset the computer twice. Nothing has worked. HELP!!!!!

If it's that new, return it under warranty.

I don't believe it's a hardware problem. If I exchange this for another machine running windows 7, I'll likely have the same issues. I was hoping to find some sort of patch - assuming it came from a site I could actually load. I have ordered a new modem from my isp. Hopefully, it will resolve the problem.

What's the error message when the sites don't load? Is it a Westell Modem?

On the occasions when there is any message, it's 403 - I am forbidden access. Yes, it is a westell.
