This has only happened 2 or 3 times but all have been over the past year or so, it is more confusing and frustrating than troubling but still something i would like to get to the bottom of.
Seemingly randomly, my entire home network, consisting of 4 computers connected by wireless will simultaneously stop loading web pages, but only some. It seems i can still use most applications (i was playing starcraft 2 while on skype, both of those continued to work but could not access web pages over any of the 4 computers), however some websites will partially load and others won't load at all.
This only happens rarely thus it didn't start after any big changes, we have changed ISPs during this time period (unrelated), got a new modem (died), and so i don't understand what could be causing this simultaneously. As far as i know it's not a virus, unless it can effect the entire network.
Anyway i was wondering if anyone has any ideas on what may be causing this, maybe just pitch some things that might be triggering it, i might be able to solve it myself with the right trigger :)
By the way, the network consists of 2 laptops both running vista and 2 desktops both running xp.
