Blocked betting sites

I seem to be unable to access my usual betting sites. Skybet,Ladbrokes,William Hill etc and even the commentary site Teamtalk.
Just wondered if anyone else has same problem.
I dont have any problems with other kinds of websites.

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried with the firewall turned off.
What Security programs have you got running.

Hi Buteman.Thanks for your interest.
I now have this sorted.I'll explain.
Because my BB speed is rubbish,esp at weekends,I'm always willing to try anything that claims to increase speed a bit.
I read on another forum [not pca]
that some had found that changing the AOL mtu value to 1452 brought about an improvement,so I did this. At the time of my problem,I never associated this change with my inability to access the sites mentioned.
Simply putting the mtu value back to 1400 cured it.
Silly me.
