    Certain sites kicking me offline

    Okay one more gripe from me today. There are at least two websites that every single time I try to go to them, it disconnects me from the internet. After than I am unable to get back on unless I reboot. I can disconnect and connect to our wireless network as much as I want, but I still cannot get back online until I reboot the laptop. Then it's fine. What in the WORLD could be causing this??!

    The two sites are:
    http://www.downmemorylaneco.com
    http://www.alltooflat.com/geeky/elgoog/

    Other information that may or may not be important:
    It happens in both IE and FF, whether I'm connected through my wireless internet card or through the ethernet cable. I'm running Windows XP, and it happened before installing SP2 also. We have a cable modem and I'm on a wireless network in our house, and it does not happen to the main computer or to the other laptop on the network.

    Any ideas?? Thanks so much for your help

    Hmm... both sites work fine for me, except the first one is backwards...

    That seems really weird. I know my mom just recently began having problems with her internet connection. Turns out her winsock was corrupted. I don't even know what that means.
