    None of my inetrnet facing apps. connect incl. Opera, gftp, thunderbird etc.etc.
    Same on other machines since about 30 mins. ago.

    Has anyone ever experienced something like that ?

    Edit. Switched off and unplugged router. Plugged in and switched on again and now it is connecting
    to the internet also with the other internet facing apps. Nevertheless I don't understand why that happened.

    I don't know why either, but once in a while I get weird things happening, and a router and modem reboot solves the problem. Something must get kludged up in the router somehow I guess....
