I bought a new HP Windows 7 PC last night. Its works great at my house (comcast) but when i brought it to the office with me (verizon DSL) half of the websites I try to load won't. Google works fast, but i can't view half of the websites that show up in the searches. Though at my house on Comcast, it works great. The sites will try to load forever, never time out or any errors, just "waiting for ....com" forever.

I've tried...
disabled ip6
turned off windows firewall.
came with Symantec, used norton removal tool.
using hard wired at both locations.
used static IP and dynamic, tried multiple dns servers
reinstalled NIC
acts the same way while in safemode
installed and ran 0 malware programs
installed and removed avast
no proxy servers
I can ping sites that won't load
I plugged in a spare macbook into the verizon modem, and it worked fine.
Ordered a new verizon modem, will arive in a few days.

I brought the computer back home with me, and its working great here like before.

Any ideas? Thanks

Have you tried resetting modem/router by pressing the pin button at the back for 20 seconds?

I had the same problem with a Westell 6100 from CenturyLink. Swapped out for a different one (7500 I think) and my problems went away.
