Not sure if this is the right place for this post, but I am having a really weird networking issue. Every now and then, though usually after streaming media or finishing a big .torrent download, my Firefox stops loading pages. It instead tries to download whatever page I am trying to view as a .bin file. The download manager opens and everything. I can still ping most sites from the command line, though not all. To make it even weirder, the same thing happens on my wife's mac version of firefox. Power cycling the modem and router usually fix the problem. Has anyone ever had a problem like this? If so, how should I go about identifying/preventing the problem? Thanks in advance.
