You previously showed that your resolv.conf had your modem as the first
nameserver with your ISPs DNS servers as second and third. Could you try
moving the modem's IP to after the ISPs nameservers in your resolv.conf
then restarting your web browser.


Any opinion expressed is mine (or else I'm playing devils advocate for
the sake of a good argument). My employer had nothing to do with this
