Default cannot suddenly connect to selected websites

hi,

iam using a dell inspiron 1150 with dual boot of WinXP and Gentoo linux. A very weird problem has suddenly appeared. I cannot suddenly access some sites, (gmail.google.com, cannot login in to msn messenger, cannot access my university mail account website) all other sites seem to work fine but i jus cant get these sites, it jus says 'Connecting to gmail.google.com..." in status bar... and the most weird part is :

-i have the same problem in both Gentoo and windows
-im on a network with other computers connected to a common DSL router and they all can access these sites except mine
-i tried using their connection (IP) but am still am not able to get through

pls. help me as im running out of all ideas as to what suddenly went wrong..

regards,
nadeem

it could possibly be your internal MTU settings... double check the MTU in your router and ISP to verify there in sync.. if they are then try changing your internal MTU to match

perhaps its because your ISP has cached the site? I have had that problem like a million times on my websites.. Umm try to get a new ip..
