      You haven't got any software installed on your computer that is blocking those sites have you ?

      Failing that and if you haven't already try rebooting the router.

      Re: URGENT! i cant conect to sky.com!

      If another PC on the router can connect to the sites then either something in the router settings is wrong (doubtful) or the issue is with your PC (more likely). What error do you get when you try to load the pages? Is it a straight 404 error or is it access denied?
