I have VirginMedia Cable. They sent me a new cable modem yesterday and everything seemed ok, however, whenever I try to go to the IMDB website (www.imdb.com), I get the page below

I've checked my settings (Mozilla Firefox) and Javascript is enabled. I've also tried this in IE7 and get the same error.

I don't know what to think.

Funnily enough, just a few minutes ago, I couldn't get to the Matrix website either. I don't know what changed which allowed me to get here this time.

Some pages work fine, presumably the ones not working are running java script (but then I thought Matrix website ran javascript...so how am I able to be here?)

Anyone got any ideas? Anyone else get to the www.imdb.com website?

I just got through with FireFox Mozilla and had no problems.

Sorry that it doesn't help you.

Yeah done that.

Turns out, when I was installing my new modem, it wanted to install two programs, PC Guard and PC Broadband Advsor or something. I choose NOT to install PC Guard, but let it install the PC Broadband Advisor. I uninstalled that, and it works fine.

Go figure!

That problem is back! I could get on IMDB ealrier after initially reporting the issue, but now I can't!

Bloody problem...I couldn't get on Matrix website a minute ago...and I could before and now!

I'm at a total loss here. I've even done a system restore to before the modem was installed and still it's there...but what's annoying is it is intermittent....one minute I can't get on a website, next minute I can!

You on DSL ? You're not connecting with software provided by the ISP I hope, but using built-in function in XP and later OS, or using raspppoe on win2k. Or even, better your router takes care of connections.
You might want to check your MTU settings, as that is a common source of intermittent disconnect and sites that stop loading on DSL connections.
hth

Edit : Duh, you said cable modem... That said, MTU issues also arise with cable modems, as you can see by doing a quick google on it

Panzers,

No offense, but this problem can happen on any OS. It is not a Vista specific issue.

Since Judge has everything fine now, I'll leave it at that.

I know it is a pain in the rear -end but perhaps a total re-install of your OS can solve the strange problem.
Good Luck JD.

Umm, apparently you haven't been reading all the responses because he is having the same problem again. No offense.
Where that may be true, you have to at least consider that it may be a vista issue. Just about everything else is.

You're going to believe what you want, which is fine. But trying to point at Vista when it is not a Vista problem does nobody any good. And that is what I was trying to gently nudge you away from.

On Xp, so that's the end of that one lads

Still got the issue. I don't think they've activated my modem properly. Yet another call to broadband support.

JD,

When I run into this problem I usually just turn off my pc and unplug my modem from it's connection and power source.

Wait a half hour, then re-connect the modem and turn it all back on.

Most of the time that does it for me.

Once in while this doesn't work, with those times I leave everything off overnight and that has never failed me.

Good luck.

Well I haven't left the modem off for half an hour or overnight, but I have unplugged and left off fot eh a minute or two.

They are calling me tonight, so we'll see what they've got to say...but I'm not buying it's a browser issue. This has only happened since installing the new modem and their software. Javascript is enabled anyway (tried disabling it, rebooting, enabling, rebooting to no success).

They can fix it...thx anyway peeps.

I agree, it probably isn't your browser per se. Somewhere deep in down in the land of software communicating with each other some "0" should be a "1". Once it resets itself (sometimes you have no control) all will be good. I have faith this will go away.

Judge, I mean it, check your MTU settings : use the google and make a search for MTU and cable modems.
It's your best bet so far...

Well, it appears I rebooted everything (including the dog) except for the router. Rebooted the router and now have my 10Mb/s connection!

Thx to all who took the time to answer.

Noxious, I will still look up the MTU settings anyway...see what it can do.

Ah, yeah, the reboot !!!
Next time : reboot the router first. Probably got confused talking to the new modem ;)
Glad everything is working, but indeed researching MTU will give you at least one new weapon to fight Murphy's Law when modifying your connection setup ;)
Cheers !!!

when I first encountered the computer in 82(?) my computer savvy friend said "Never install any free software with any computer device", which is what I tried to do all these years. I get a little upset when I don't even KNOW what I did to cause my computer to do something I do not even understand to begin with.
