Hi I recently had to reset my 2wire hgv2400 but since doing that some websites either dont work correctly or are very slow or you have to reload the page to get it working.

The websites im having problems with yahoo you have to keep reloading emails until it works, live seems to be very hit and miss too and it wont let you upload attachments or download them, ebay wont let me upload pictures, cant view cams, im sure there are others too.

Is this a firewall thing? please help!!!

As the "2wire hgv2400" that you've reset is a Modem/Router, the problem is unlikely to be a firewall one, more likely that (assuming it was a "hard reset" back to factory default settings) some setting hasn't been configured again correctly.

Have a look for an MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) setting. The default is normally 1500 and if it is on this, try a lower setting of 1492 or 1450.
