hmm - puzzling me


I recently changed broadband providers at the same time as getting a wireless modem/router.

Everything is great except for one thing - sometimes i cant access certain sites at certain times, its only msn groups really that i have noticed - sometimes i cant access them from my favourites or from the people and chat link on msn home page, I can access non msn stuff from my favourites ok and i can get to my groups by searching for 'msn users' in my browser then finding 'my groups' from there.

I can make the links work again by turning the modem off and on again which makes me think its something to do with the modem (Belkin adsl wireless modem/router) but I could be wrong -

I just wondered if anyone had any ideas on what i can do to solve the problem

I run windows XP home edition and have the same problem on my laptop as on my desktop. I also have MSN messenger which works ok
