My router has randomly decided to play up...

For some reason I have not been able to view certain websites lately, some examples being: www.wow-europe.com and www.mr2oc.co.uk

Other websites, like OcUK and googlemail are fine.

As a test I unplugged my router, which is a Linksys WRT54GS, and hooked my PC up directly to the modem. Sorted, everything seems to be running fine and I can access the websites that I am unable to with the router connected.

Does anyone have any ideas on why all of the sudden, out of the blue, my router would decide to not show certain websites?

Cheers.

I appear to be having the same problem.

I am running an oldish Belkin router and both my PC and my laptop cannot visit certain websites (for example, these forums and wikipedia.org (even though I can get a tracert to wikipedia)), but when I connect from my laptop using my phone as a modem these websites work fine.

I have checked with my ISP and there is no problem on their side, so it appears to be my router playing up from out of the blue (I have tried restoring to factory defaults, but this did not work either.)

Any ideas?
