Couple computer problems. Help

First off, My computer started acting wierd a little bit after I installed a windows update. When I go to certain websites like bankofamerica, some ebay, places to pay bills and a few other sites it say page cannot be diplayed. All the other internet pages work? I tryed my girls computer and they worked fine. I even did a restore and still nothing. Also limewire says my firewall is stopping it from working or I have no internet connection. That is the first problem.

Second, I bought a wireless broadband router ( linksys ) wireless G. And a wireless G card for the other computer. Works fast and good but every ten minutes or so it cuts the connection off and restarts it again. makes it kinda hard to play games or browse the web when it keeps restarting on me. The other comp with the actual router never goes off line.

Any help would be great. I have been pulling my hair out over this crap. Thanks.

maKe sure you have all the latest drivers for your hardware. I was losing connection every few minutes and would reboot and again be fine for a few minutes. updated drivers and problems all gone

For you first problem.. did you install all the updates?? There was an issue a few months back with WindersXP and secure web pages, which from the sounds of it you are expierencing.

As for the wireless I dont have any ideas.

Do you by chance have 802.1x authentication enabled? If you don't use 802.1x authentication then disable it. Sounds to me like its trying to authenticate and it cant after a while so it restarts the wireless connection and trys the authenitcation again and keeps looping. If so disable it by going to Control Panel-Network connections. Right click you Wireless connection and select properties. I believe its under the Wireless tab a check box that says use 802.1x authenication or something like that. Uncheck it if its checked, unless you are using some 802.1x authenication.
