    recently my internet suppliers servers shutdown and there were some major internet issues (could not connect at all etc).. while this happened i fiddled around with some buttons to try to make it work.. and today the internet has come back on.. however now i cannot go onto msn (it comes up with a message saying im not connected to the internet, even though im visiting webpages, as fast as i used to).. and also some forms on websites do not work. i cannot use myspace pictures upload as nothing appears when i add a photo.. and i cannot use websites such as onlinepoker66 now.. just small things like that..... confusing i know but its the best way i can explain it... i dont know if it could be because of something ive changed in system preferences.. but somethings changed since the internet went down and it sucks :(

    note: i can still use other instant messaging programs such as meebo.. just not msn

    First try using a different browser. Try Firefox or Opera.

    If that works then you know the issue is specific to Safari (which I assume you are using). Perhaps you have Java or Flash disabled/uninstalled?

    Are you on Road Runner or Optimum Online in the NY/NJ/CT area?

    On Sunday, Time Warner (NY, NJ RoadRunner) had a major outage lasting almost 24 hours.

    On Tuesday evening my sister (in CT using Optimum Online) said that she also had an outage. To fix her situation, I had her unplug both her cable modem and router, wait 30 seconds, then plug in her cable modem. After it resynchronized with the servers, I had her plug in her router (which also resets it). Since then she has had no problems.
