Default Having trouble reaching some websites.

For some reason, in the past week or so I have been unable to reach several sites. I can't even reach my own webspace (www.Iamthead.com). I thought maybe my host was just down or something, but today got there no problem from the schools computers. Same goes for several other sites that I frequent (tech-pc, rottentomatoes.com for example)


I'm having no trouble getting to majorgeeks though.


Any ideas? I'm confused since I didn't make any changes before this started happening.

I'm on cable, running through a linksys wireless router (this machine is wired, though). Using Mozilla Firefox 1.0 and I've tried IE aswell with no luck.
