Suddenly no browsing, until restart, but ping ok. why?

Cloud core router 1009, everything works fine for 2 weeks.
Today suddenly all lan computers (50) can ping but when going to some page, its only loading website, connected but no web content.
Had to reset router and everything works fine.
Why ?
Nothing was changed.

Run the Hotspot wizard on the virtualAP interface. Then the users will be forced to open the hotspot login page.
