So here's the problem: I have a desktop computer running a new install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit that has had issues loading tinypic, and only tinypic, since I installed the OS. However, the problem only occurs when this computer is plugged into one specific ethernet connection.
My internet is setup like so: cable modem -> router -> ethernet cables/wireless -> computers
When I have this desktop computer hooked up to the wired ethernet connection in my office, tinypic and tinypic.com will try to continually load and never time out. However, everything works fine when I switch this computer over to my wireless connection. In that same way, hooking another computer up to this ethernet connection results in everything loading fine. The results are the same in both Firefox and IE, and no other computer or device in my house has any problems.
The issue seems to only occur when this specific computer is hooked up to one specific ethernet connection.
What I've tried: running virus and malware scans, clearing cache/temp files/cookies, switching browsers, disabling jumbo packets, and every other suggested solution I could find. Nothing's made a difference so far.
I'm completely at a loss to fix this, so I'd appreciate any assistance.
