Hi Dylanz Of Dylanz,
Several additional thoughts:
Did you say it doesn't matter which computer you use on the router, you are still having the same problem with the websites you're trying to load? If so, then the first thing you should try is to take the laptop to another place where you can use a wireless connection (any hotspot like a library or a friend's with a wireless connection), and see if you can load the websites there. If you can't load the pages at another place and other people can, then I think the problem must be in your computer. If you can load them there, then you should look at your router/modem/ISP for possible problems.
Secondly, is this a new problem? If it is relatively new, you may be able to get around it by going to a previous restore point from before the problem started. If you've never done this before, Go to Start / All Programs / Accessories / System Tools / System Restore
check the box to Restore my computer to an earlier time
and click on Next
. You'll see a calendar with highlighted dates. Choose one of the dates just preceeding these problems and allow your system to return to that date. See if the problem goes away.
If this doesn't work, go back into System Restore as per the above instructions, only this time choose the option to reverse the change you made.
Do you have Spybot Search & Destroy? If so, please deactivate Teatimer while you're working on any changes to your computer, as Teatimer ensures that your settings will not be changed. This can create the situation that no matter how many times you make a change to your computer, Teatimer will change it back. If you need them, the instructions for disabling Teatimer are in the quote box:
To disable Teatimer:
- Open Spybot S&D
- Click Mode, choose Advanced Mode
- Go To the bottom of the Vertical Panel on the Left, Click Tools
- then, also in left panel, click Resident which shows a red/white shield.
- If your firewall raises a question, say OK
- In the Resident protection status frame, Uncheck the box labeled Resident "Tea-Timer"(Protection of over-all system settings) active
- OK any prompts.
- Use File, Exit to terminate Spybot
Try disabling all your addons in Firefox by going to Tools and click on Addons. Then disable each one.
Also, please note: if you uninstalled Java and did not reboot before installing the new one, you will need to uninstall it again, reboot and then reinstall it.

Sometimes blocked sites are actually blocked, either by a security setting or by a parental control or by a change to the hosts file. What webpages are they? I can't see the bottom of your screenshot clearly, but the bottom of the browser gives some information as to what point the webpage was able to load to before it got interrupted. Does it simply stay at the point of trying to connect?
It will help us to know what solution you ultimately find.
