How could a modem or router go bad in such a way that only affects one single website... :rolleyes:

Maybe you just haven't found any other sites that are effected by it?

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Have you been welding at home lately? Stray EMF Emissions from a nearby welder may have caused a magnetic flux buildup in the router, messing up the frequency switching for certain IP’s. It might need to be degaussed. Chances are it will dissipate on its own in a few days.

I don't know what the issue is but clearly, we can blame the Cardassians.

I wouldn't expect that, no. But it is trouble-shooting 101..... unplug, wait, and see if problem continues.

And you could well have some stuff messed up in your browser, but let's go one thing at a time.

Your ISP may have also ended up on some 'naughty' list. But that's something the forum admin(s) would have to look into.

Have you considered swapping your router over to third party firmware? Now's the time.

Mine was really glitchy until I did that, never looked back.
