We have Comcast internet and everything was fine until recently. I am currently using my father-in-law's PC, and Gmail, Paypal, and Google all work fine. They don't work on my laptop or my husband's. We've reset the router/modem several times and nothing works. So we unplugged the main line outside and it fixed it for two weeks but now it's back to being stupid again. We've tried everything else and nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

Is it only Google, Gmail, and Paypal that you can't access, or are you having trouble accessing any sites? You may want to check out some of the tips in our Community FAQ about how to diagnose not being able to access a website. – nhinkle Apr 8 '12 at 23:17
Also, what is the error message you get when trying to access those sites? – Lèse majesté Apr 8 '12 at 23:29
