Partial failure connecting to all internet sites using PC with Unbuntu and Motorola SBG6580

Partial failure connecting to all internet sites using PC with Unbuntu and Motorola SBG6580

Hi

I can connect to www.xfinity.com and www.google.com via this configuration:

Ubuntu 14.04, Motorola SBG6580, 23bit Firefox, Dell Lattitude D830

 

I cannot connect to most other internet sites such as my credit card and bank sites.

For example. www.discover.com ERROR is Cannot connect to site

 

Is it possible to fix this config to work here?

I'm not familiar with the Linux distros, but can you try using a different browser to see if it changes anything?

I can fully access internet with Fedora 26 or 27, Ubuntu should be same.  However, I cannot access streaming on comcast.net website because they don't like Linux, something to do with DRM I'm sure.  Only Windows or Mac allowed.  I use Google Chrome 63.0.3239.108.
