    I'm having problems trying to connect to websites owned by Google, it timed out when trying it in Google Chrome, also happens to Microsoft Edge.

    Let's start with the low hanging fruit:
    • Have you tried visiting those websites in a private or incognito session?
    • Have you tried another browser?

    If one of these options does solve the issue, then it could be to do with:
    • A cookie problem
    • Add blocker
    • Anti virus/smart screen like solution mucking up your connection.
    If it doesn't work, try:
    • Enabling or disabling your VPN or proxy. If you have any of course.
    • Try connecting through a different network.
    • Try connecting through a different computer on the same network.
    If it seems localised to your network, it might be something like llama had; having to do with your country's backbone or a DDoS protection that may have gotten a bit over zealous. Both should fix itself.

    Let me know if any of this offers any kind of solution or more clarity on the nature of the problem.

    UPDATE:
    I found out that people in Belgium (like me), a piece of the Netherlands and France can't get on YouTube and Google Maps. Take a look here: http://downdetector.com/status/youtube/map/

    I don't know if it's a DDoS attack or something, i'm expecting to have it fixed.

    give me the boxes.
