I have had trouble connecting to individual networks in the past but it's weird that none of them connect. The only time something similar happens to me is when I have internet connection problems. Then I usually have to restart my computer and it's fine again.
I do however have trouble connecting to any network when playing poker in my browser. I have no other option with some sites as I now have a mac. It was odd cos when I first had my mac I could play at partypoker in my browser but now I can't. I posted here about it no one could help me with my problem either.
Did you perhaps update your computer recently? Or your firewall. I think this is what caused problems for me. And is it just poker software you have trouble with? I'm not a computer expert I'm afraid. I can only recommend playing about with settings, deactivating your firewall and testing different options.

Posted by palfco: try checking your firewall settings as some of the updates may be being blocked.
+1 best advice on here.
This sounds EXACTLY like firewall issues. Disable all firewall/internet protection options/packages you have, try the poker rooms. If they work, you still need to re-enable your firewall but at least you know where the problem is and just a matter of find it in your protection software and giving it a tick for access.
If everything else online (msn, web browser, p2p, torrents, etc) work and only poker no work, then almost def firewall issue.

yeah its almost 100% firewall, small chance that you messed up your TCP/IP files but if everything else works fine then its just the settings. I didnt hear anything about Canadian ISPs banning gambling sites.
