Can't connect to CNN over AT&T but can over Comcast. Why??

Posted

I'm totally baffled.

I have two interet services, Comcast and AT&T. Suddenly, after my AT&T service seemed to go out, I am unable to connect to CNN through Firefox over my AT&T service (wired or wireless) from my Macbook.

It redirects to cgi.cnn.com/cgi-bin/redirect.ha and I get a "Not Found" error page.

I can, however, connect to CNN through Safari over my ATT service from my Macbook.

Also, I AM able to connect to CNN through Firefox over my Comcast service (wired) from my PC desktop (running XP) with no redirecting or errors.

I am running all latest software updates.

Why in the world would some combination of Firefox, AT&T, a Mac, and CNN prevent connection/produce errors, where everything else seems to work????
