Last night and today I've been having intermittent problems connecting to some international webpages.This happened a few months ago too. I'm wondering if it is the same issue. 

eg, 

http://www.ocregister.com/news/police-365157-shootings-officer.html

I get....
The connection to www.ocregister.com was interrupted.


I can connect to the above webpage through my USA vpn.  

I'm using just the standard telecom dns settings (obtained automatically through router). I'v reset the router/pc etc too. 

There used to be a gz webpage to register isp issues. Can't find it.
