Default Girlfriend's Laptop Won't Load some websites

Okay so my girlfriends laptop won't load lakeheadu.ca or any other lakehead websites when connected to her router. My laptop and cell phone will connect and load them and her cellphone will connect however the laptop will not.

I am not sure if it is a problem with the laptop wireless adapter or the router because when plugged in directly to the modem there is no problem but no other devices have an issue connecting to the router.

Any help would be greatly appreciated let me know if you need anymore info to help me out.

Dumb question but have you tested with 3 to 4 different browser on her laptop? It sounds more like a browser issue and IE9 suck octopus nut sacks. If it's a network issue, it shouldn't be a partial load.

Sounds like a cache/cookie issue. See if you can go into your cookies and deleting anything related to the site. You could always completely clear all of the cache/cookies for the web browser, but that would remove any passwords or saved settings on all websites.

I wasn't referring to running CCleaner, you can clean out your cookies/cache within firefox itself (if you are using it) and I'm fairly certain the other web browsers can allow you to do it too.

Here is what you do. Try to open these websites in a browser and if they don't work do this.
1) Open a elevated command prompt
2) Use the "ping" and "traceroute" commands to see if you can get to them that way

If #2 works you have a proxy/dns issue either based on your computer or ISP.
