I can open Google Reader without difficulty.
As soon as I move onto the second item, I get the message:
"Oops...and error occurred. Please try again in a few seconds."
This occurs on both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox (up-to-the-minute versions) on my Ubuntu laptop, as well as on Firefox and Safari on OS X on my home network.
Connecting to a different wireless network (say, at the local coffee shop), and it works perfectly; no configuration changes required. Returning to my home network sees the problem return.
The only thing I can think of is either a router issue or an ISP issue. How would I trouble shoot this at the router level?
