Is my router (or Comcast) blocking i.dell.com?

Something odd is happening on my internet connection at home. I have two machines both of which connect to the intenet via a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router (or Comcast variant on it) and a Comcast cable connection. Both of them do not display the Dell homepage properly. After viewing source I determined that they couldn’t find the supporting files at the subdomain i.dell.com (it’s possible other subdomains are missing as well, but that is the one causing the most dramatic effect). Viewing the site from another internet connection it appears fine. Is something up with the router, or with Comcast? Looking for steps to determine what is going on and (hopefully) rectify it.

How to make VPN work with Windows Server 2003 and a Juniper Networks firewall?

I am trying to set up a VPN server at the office using our Juniper Networks SSG5-v92-LAN firewall/router and, if needed, a server running Windows Server 2003. The reason why I'm saying "if needed" is because the router itself seems to be able to handle VPN connections without the need of a seperate server, unless the username and password needs to be authenticated against another computer.
