I can't connect to the public weater site NOAA.gov, and weather.gov, but have no problem connecting to any other sites, private of public.
I have the following info:
This blows my mind, since the 3 device all have different OS's, browsers, AV software. The only thing in common in the network is the modem and wireless router. Why only the two .gov sites cannot connect?
Appreciate any thoughts anyone might have on this weird experience.
Thanks in advance.

Have you tried to access those sites directly from the modem (remove your linksys router)? If its working, then try opening Port 443 on your router...

Port 443 is used for the secured websites.
If you are not able to access these websites even through the modem then I think you need to contact your Internet provider.
Try to ping the website and see if you get replies from the web address.

Thanks... I tried http://www.websitenotworking.com/weather.gov as well as NOAA, and sites are up, and pinging fails. Regarding ISP, been there done that...COMCAST does not block sites. Maybe cripple them, but not block.
Any other ideas?

Have you checked if you are able to access the website when your modem is directly connected to the Modem?
May be you can try to reset your Router and then check if you are able to access that website.

Is this Beaver Meadows, NH? I live off Mt Rd and never have a problem with my wireless yet with the same WRT400N at home and the office, I always have problems on wireless at my office. I have Comcast both places and cannot get anywehre with the office issues I am having. Any advice?

Not the same.
The new DNS server I spoke of is local, and would not affect you in NH.
If you have trouble escalating an issue at COMCAST, such as I had, you might try the CEO's points of contact listed here.

I have the problem where I can connect on a site when my computer is plugged directly into the modem but not when it is on wireless.
Would you be so nice to tell me more about that Port 443?
I wonder if that would not take care of my problem.
