mapquest/googlemaps-> internet disconnects

rphang
I am using Windows XP sp2, Internet explorer 7, and internet browsing is ok until I access mapquest or google maps - then, the browser locks up, with no directions & no maps. The internet connection is then completely lost. I have to reboot my router when this happens. Does anyone know of this problem and a solution? Thanks.

    thanks for the advice about the firmware - I checked, but I already had the most up-to-date firmware. The problem with mapquest only occurred when I "upgraded" to IE7. I uninstalled IE7 and now it works perfectly with IE6.

    I've just developed this same issue. It happens whether using IE or Firefox and is new in the last week. I've rerun McAfee & SpyBot to clear viruses an spyware. Are there any solutions short of re-installing WinXP? Will this even help?
