Question Some websites loading and other executables not downloading due to no connection

Hi all I have a strange issue here with my internet. I have been trying to download steam and various other applications to no success.

The problem i am running into is that my internet will literally not allow me to download these applications, as if it is being blocked.

For some contextual information into the issue, discord, spotify and youtube all work just fine, but i cant download steam or origin and the websites load in the minimal HTML format with regular text and no flash images etc.

I have tried flushing my DNS, setting the DNS to a public google DNS(,, disabling any form of anti virus, returning to default settings on chrome, internet explorer and edge all to have the same problems.

The install of this OS is new, literally hours ago and I have installed any applicable drivers to my hardware.

My internet is a wireless connection and i haven't had any problems with it until today. I am using a TP LINK AC 1900 internet card.

My computer information is:
