2Wire Wireless and Ebay/Yahoo

Has anyone else experienced trouble with accessing certain sites over a wireless connection?

I have just set up a wireless router (2Wire 1710HG), connect and can acess most sites (both http and https) at a good speed, I can browse most of ebay no problem but when I try to sign the browser times out. Similar with yahoo mail, I can login no problems but when I try to open a mail the browser times out every time!?

I can acess the above site using a usb dsl modem, so there doesn't seem to be a problem with the ISP, laptop, or browser settings. I have installed both IE and Firefox, both result in the above.

Laptop is acer running win xp home.

See if the Router has an MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) setting in its configuration pages. If it does, the default value is usually 1500, try reducing that to 1492. If that makes no difference, try 1450.
