How far do yuou actually get before it times oput? Do you have any similar problems with any other sites? What ISP? Have you discussed the problem with them? Have you tried going back to your original modem to make sure that still ok?

Quick test to eliminate a possible firewall issue,briefly disable your firewall and try again.

If the sites are now accessible,we know its a firewall issue and can address this accordingly.

Dont forget to enable your firewall again !!!

Ok now we know its possibly the router's configuration.

Make and model please of the router.

Sorry 8446,i cannot find anything related to that model number !

just checked the modem and box again. It is a 802.11g wireless LAN ADSL2+ modem router. There are 2 numbers on the box ADSLR10CW3XI and the same number without the XI on the end. I don't know if it will make a difference!

You may have to check the routers configuration page if not an isp problem.

Look under security and if the routers hardware firewall is enabled,briefly disable this and try again.

Ive found some info on port forwarding for your router but still looking for the manual.

Its probably just a setting that needs tinkering with.

Is this computer connected directly to the router or wirelessly ?

Do you have another computer connected to the router at all,such as by ethernet cable ?
