cant connect to some websites with talktalk

Since moving to talktalk,about 2 weeks ago,(previously used BT and Onetel with no probs) I am unable to connect to many websites. eg Nationwide building soc, MSN, Others eg google, yahoo, BBC are no problem. I use a netgear DG824M wireless router. Talktalk are hopeless & say its not their problem. I have just spoken to a friend who had the same problem when changing to talktalk, but he recons it resloved itself in a couple of weeks. I can still connect to other wi-fi networks and access all sites as before, its just the home one with talktalk thats the problem. Any ideas ??
Thanks Mike

managed to sort. Netgear support via email very helpfully suggested reducing the MTU value in the router settings from 1458 to 1358. I can now access all sites OK.
