Internet access question

My friend in New York just got broadband internet from Road Runner or some such company. I was over there trying to access the internet, and it will not access half the sites I am used to looking at - if you try to go to dfwstangs, for instance, it will bring up a DELL Search Screen that says "that site could not be found, here is a list of similar sites....." and displays a link back to DFWstangs.... when you click on that link it just displays a white screen and says "Done" down in the left hand corner.

Same with Hotmail. Hell, half the stuff you try to access will not display properly.

What could be wrong? It does get out to Yahoo and a couple of other sites, so the connection is there, I just think something is not allowing full access.

Sounds like the network you're using has either a firewall block on those sites, or your internet privacy isnt allowing it.
