I ran into some trouble with my wireless connection this morning. I can connect to my wireless network and it seems to be sending an receiving packets, but I can only access some websites like and, but pages like do no work. Youtube works but I can't play any videos (pauses at start).

I am the only one using this network, I have 1 computer connected via wire and 2 computers on the wireless 1 pc and 1 mac, both have the same problem> I also installed DD-WRT with no complications and still does not work.

Thankful for any help that may result in me overcoming this :) (probably some noob mistake)

I have tried different browsers (chrome, IE, safari, mozilla)

Just to clarify. You have no problems if you connect the computers to the wire, and all have problems when you use wireless? – Hennes Dec 15 '12 at 11:42
yes sir! seems so, im typing this from wired now – nalyd bob Dec 15 '12 at 11:51
Sanity check: Are you connecting to the correct access point? (and not the neighbours AP with some filters installed). – Hennes Dec 15 '12 at 11:59
yes ofc :) its my network and also my password so thats not it (i think) – nalyd bob Dec 15 '12 at 12:01
turned out ISP was the error – nalyd bob Apr 24 '13 at 14:05
