Default need help

so not sure if this is the right section or forum to post this but i need help on what to do. so i went to open a site today and got a message saying "The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading." I have noticed ever since I moved in with my roomate that certain sites i like to visit keep giving me this message and will never load. He is a big computer guy and i think he is blocking these sites somehow. I went into my setting and seen that "remote login""file sharing" and "screen sharing" where all allowed. I never set those. How do i find out if these sites are blocked threw the router or somewhere else? I got his laptop and logged in and i can open every site on his, so only my computer will not load them. any ideas?

You should have said that before now. Is his system a Mac as well?

You should compare your network settings. See if there is a difference.

just did and they are both the same. is it possible to block one computer from viewing certain sites while letting others view them on the same router and connection?
