I'm seeing some really odd behavior on my office LAN recently. I have Comcast business class service using an SMC 8014 modem/router. No speed problems, but I lose access to specific web sites and then have to reboot the router to get them back. Two web sites in particular I lost access to in the past few days: www.symantec.com
. No problem accessing numerous others; just one or two. Reboot the router, and they're back.
I hesitate to call Comcast about this without some background info because I suspect they wouldn't believe me. In fact, I probably would not believe a user if one called and told me the same story. I don't have a clue how a router would prevent access from a few specific sites like that. Enlighten me, someone. Thanks.
