Internet pages not displayed

Help me please

I have been changing some internet settings, using my cable modem for 2 PC's, etc. And i can't open most internet pages. It states that the page cannot be displayed because of failed server. I tried it again and it opens fine. Initially, i thought the web pages were temporarily shut down. But is not the case. Also is slower when opening a web page, unlike before. Sometimes an x shows instead of the picture.

Let's changed some settings....

and now things won't work right. Gosh, did you try changing them back? Requiring certification checks and other settings will slow you of course. Lowering security settings won't but might allow spies, damned spies, and spies that spy.
