    Certain website address can't be reached by my home computer. No, they are not porno. It's websites that I've built for clients, but for some reason, can't reach them through a browser.

    I can reach them through FTP.
    I can reach them through my iPhone on 3G, but not on WiFi.
    I cannot reach them through Firefox, Safari, or Chrome.

    I used the terminal command to clear my DNS settings on my main machine, but none of my other machines can reach them either.

    What could be causing this? It seems that nothing on my home network can access these URL's, but when I go to a proxy browser like, or use 3G, I can see them fine.

    What could be the problem?

    Also - I have a WRT54GL linksys router, but it shouldn't have the ability to cache DNS or anything else for that matter, so I can't figure out what is wrong.
