Hi! Recently I had my memory sticks replaced because they were faulty (replaced for free by Corsair) and I used the opportunity when I got my new ones to clean up my computer and reinstall windows 7. I used a legit copy with my personal Win7 Professional key. 

However, after installing the most necessary drivers (networking, graphics card and USB), I went to download my usual programs etc. Most of the domains I could connect to instantly and downloaded fine (Chrome, facebook, google), some took really long time (skype, windows) and some would not load at all (battle.net, microsoft.windows.com). I am currently typing from my laptop, which runs on the same internet connection, and is able to connect to all those websites without any problem.
The battle.net website gave me the following error messages: 
IE: "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"
Firefox: "Connection timed out" (after what, not even a minute or so?)
Chrome: "This webpage is not available"

I have also installed Windows several times again after the problem occured the first time, no luck. Turned windows firewall off did not work either.

Is there anyone that has the slightest idea what's going on?
All help is appreciated!

The motherboard should have come with a disc containing the drivers needed for this computer.  If you still have it, use it to load all of your drivers.  This sounds like you don't have all of the needed drivers installed.

 

If you no longer have the disc you can go to the Asus website and download the drivers there.

 

Once you have gone to the website click on Driver & Tools.  You will need to click on the operating system you are using, this will need to include the version (32-bit or 64-bit).  Once you have done this the available drivers will be presented.
