    Am having some issues with my internet connection since last week. I cannot for some reason access any secure sites with Safari and i get a "Server stopped responding" error.
    Also P2P and IRC don't work either, all programs i tried cannot establish a connection. At first i thought it must be an ISP issue so i called support and they couldn't find anything wrong. Then i noticed that Firefox loads secure sites just fine so ISP issues were ruled out, but now i don't have an idea what might be wrong. Anyone has a clue what might be the problem?

    Thanks!

    ps - My firewall is OFF!

    So which apps are having troubles? Safari, P2P and IRC? :)

    problem solved... i called support again and this other guy told me that my ip was 'stuck' somehow :confused: he reset it and now everything is working fine. What did he mean by that and can i reset the ip myself?
