Recently my laptop has not been loading some web pages such as ,Facebook. Ebay and Microsoft. Microsoft update just times out for example.
I've scanned for malware virus etc and also reformatted and reinstalled / updated all software.Also bought a new adsl modem.
Tried using Firefox and IE 8.
Tried disabling Avast and Zonealarm as well.

It doesn't matter if I use a lan or wireless the result is the same.

I have also hooked up a desktop with the same software ( browser etc ) run over lan and it works fine.

Fujitsu Lifebook S6410
Win XP sp3
Centrino Duo

I hope that you can help as I'm running out of ideas.

Thank you

One last thing, Scan for viruses with Panda Anti-virus Free Edition, and Install Malwarebytes and do a scan.
if either of them don't work then contact your ISP.

Thanks everyone for your help. I've solved the problem, it turned out that the MTU setting on the modem needed to be set to 1492, once I did this all was good again.
