Amazon.co.uk sign in problem

At amazon.co.uk, when I click "proceed to checkout" I put in my login details, click "Sign In to Secure Server", and I get a browser error page. This has been happening since I started trying last night. It happens on three different computers, Firefox and Chrome, Win 7 and Win XP. But as soon as I used PuTTY to tunnel via a shell account the problem went away and I have placed my order. Any advice?
Edit: Come to think of it, for weeks I have seen some mildly erratic behaviour when logged in and browsing IMDB message boards, which I believe is owned by amazon. Sometimes viewing a new post will give an error and ill have to refresh a few times. Sometimes I get weird logouts for no reason.

Re: Amazon.co.uk sign in problem

This sounds like a router issue to me, what's your set-up like?
PS firewalls and anti-virus are often culprits of these kind of issues (especially the former in my opinion) I'd eliminate these too, especially if each machine has the same software installed...

No idea what I had done but resetting router defaults fixed it. Many thanks.
