On three separate occasions I have had a situation where I cannot reach the from any of the computers in my office.  Some are running Windows, others Linux, and all use Firefox though IE does not work either.

Each time the problem has persisted for a few hours to a couple of days.  I reset the DSL modem, reset the Router (linksys, model unknown cause I'm at home) and it makes not difference.

I thought it might be my ISP (Covad) but another company in the same building has Covad DSL and they did not have the problem earlier today when I tested it.

I do not have any access restrictions setup on the router, the machines do not share any antivirus software in common and do not have Windows firewall enabled.

What the heck is going on?
