So my Netgear WGR614v7 started having issues so I finally got a chance to swap it out for my new Tplink TL-WR1043ND.
Now have a strange issue where sometimes when I open websites or browse to them I get the following error in Chrome "Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): The connection was reset."
It mainly seems to happen with NZ sites that I visit like therock.net.nz and nzherald and stuff, and then sometimes international sites too.
Does anyone know why this could be happening, or what is happening and how to fix it?
If it comes to it I can flash dd-wrt onto the new router, just have not bothered right now.

Ok I might have fixed the issue, I enabled the firewall setting in my modem.

After clicking many buttons and things issues stopped.
If one of the mods thinks that this thread is not needed just delete it (Note: I am not telling you how to do your role just a suggestion ;-) )

Sometimes Macs take some time to learn! (Just a little light humour, not a flame war, honest:D).

Hope the fix is permanent.

Hahaha, was not my mac, never thought to test irc on it.
And yeah looks permanent no issues at all today.
Win for me.

TP-Links can be cheap n nasty depending on what you're getting.

That, and no, you can't flash DD-WRT on anything TP-Link.
