    Sounds like you have a smart router there.


    Sorry, couldn't help myself.

    Any reason in particular you're still using AOL? Maybe this is a sign that it's time to take the training wheels off.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Have you tried cold booting the router (i.e. pull the power cord, wait 30 seconds and then plug it back in)?

    Have you checked to see if there is a firmware update for your router?

    You never actually said it...but is this a "wireless" router?

    If it is wireless...are you able to connect to other websites wirelessly?
