Now Im having problems accessing some web sites. Google comes right up, others like Register.com, MSN and other randoms will not load. The router shows that I am connected to the internet. and I turned off Norton. I find it pretty strange that yesterday everything was fine and now today its not. Ive powered on and off the router and computer and still problems. Is there anything else I can look into?
The most common issue in these types of situations is a malfunctioning DNS server somewhere.
As a test, try changing the DNS server on your PC to use an alternate DNS service. Google (22.214.171.124) or OpenDNS (126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52) are two high availability / reliable services. This will isolate if the issue is with name resolution using the Verizon servers or somewhere else.
Additionally, pick a site which won't load and open a command window on your PC and do a "tracert" to the hostname (tracert www.google.com) and post the results.
