cannot suddenly connect to selected websites
iam using a dell inspiron 1150 with dual boot of WinXP and Gentoo linux. A very weird problem has suddenly appeared. I cannot suddenly access some sites, (gmail.google.com, cannot login in to msn messenger, cannot access my university mail account website) all other sites seem to work fine but i jus cant get these sites, it jus says 'Connecting to gmail.google.com..." in status bar... and the most weird part is :
-i have the same problem in both Gentoo and windows
-im on a network with other computers connected to a common DSL router and they all can access these sites except mine
-i tried using their connection (IP) but am still am not able to get through
pls. help me as im running out of all ideas as to what suddenly went wrong..
