Sometimes certain virus can hijack your browsers so that you can't access web pages although internet is working fine. They most commonly do this by editing the proxy server settings of your browser. Using internet Exploret, Go to Tools - Internet Options - Connections - Lan Settings and make sure 'Use a proxy server' option is unticked. Restart your browser and try a website

Supports up to 4K resolution!

The VS192 2-Port 4K DisplayPort Splitter is perfect for anyone who needs to send one source of DisplayPort high definition video to two or four DisplayPort displays. The VS192 can split and also expand DisplayPort audio/video signal on two or four DisplayPort monitors.

Yes I know but check the equivalent setting in FF also. I have seen this many many times. Have you checked that the use proxy server is unticked??

In Firefox
Options - Advanced - Network Tab - Connection - Settings
Make sure Use System Proxy settings option is ticked as apposed to manual entry
