    Every time I try to connect to the following page on Domino's website I get temporarily disconnected from the internet:

    http://info.dominos.com/dominos_pizza/contact.nsf/frmIntlLocator

    The site works fine when I try to access it through a proxy, but whenever I try to access it directly my DSL loses its connection to the Internet (while the DSL link remains up). Could it be my ISP is somehow tampering with my connection, or could it be some kind of bug along the path between myself and Dominos?

    I've noticed when I do a traceroute on info.dominos.com versus any other address I've tied so far, the dominos trace passes through a different IP address than the others yet they're both preceded and followed by the same two IPs. It looks something like this:

    A
    X
    C

    versus

    A
    Y
    C

    Where A is the third hop in each case.

    I think you've mistaken this site for forums.indiepizza.com

    If you have nothing good to say, it's better to say nothing at all.

    From this forum's description: "The place for general gaming discussions plus off-topic subjects that don't fit cleanly into other forums."

    I've had webpages cause problems before. Could it be possible there is some code on the Dominoes webpage that is misbehaving?

    The only other thing I can think of is that the page is either sending or receiving a packet that annoys the TCP/IP stack. But that would require some intent by Dominoes. Perhaps they are trying to gather user data.
