My cable broadband connection keeps on dropping whenever I visit http sports dot yahoo dot com (I think I am not supposed to post URIs so I have to list the URI this way).
After I visit this site I cannot surf other pages even if they are on other domains. And the only way I can restore the connection is to reboot the system. releasing and renewing the DHCP using ipconfig /release and /renew does not work.
What could be the reason? In fact I am able to post this message only after rebooting the system after another unsucessful attempt to browse that yahoo subdomain.
I would start by resetting all of your properties for IE to default.
Could be something on the page isn't processing correctly and causing issues, but that doesn't make any sense.
Are you using a firewall? (I know zonealarm has caused some really, really funky issues)
