Hello guys,
When i try to access my Bank of America online banking account from either FF3 or IE 7 I get the following error

"An error occurred during a connection to
SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.
(Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)
The page you are trying to view can not be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
* Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem."

I did not have this problem previously, I am finding this problem from 2 weeks. My laptop runs on Windows xp sp3 and I use Kaspersky Internet Security 2009. I use Wireless network (secure one). Recently the settings of the router have been changed by my roommate.I think that is causing the problem,can anyone help me what things do i need to change in my wireless router settings.

The problem is not with BOA site. I am able to access my account from my office without any problem. I get this only from my home laptop.Can anybody help me how can i correct this problem
