certain websites won't load on my computer

Specs: Windows XP, 512
Hi there,

I came across this forum simply by searching google and finding another thread
where someone had a similar problem. I only recently set up new router, After this, my connection was went very fine. I am using Windows XP. my router shared by 3 systems. Anyway, as a few days, certain websites won't load on my computer and facing same problem on the client systems too - this includes Facebook, gmail, gtalk. yahoomail. etc
I tried to reset my router, hopefully all above listed sites worked smoothly, but next time I faced the same problem again and again. several times, I tried to do it, but it works for a minutes.
However, the websites listed above have never worked on my connection, although otherwise the connection is fine. I have checked the following:
Tried clear hostfile
Tried disabling all firewall and antivirus software - still wouldn't load
Tried using different browsers (IE and Firefox)
Restarting modem, restarting computer etc.
Cleared arp cache, cache and cookies etc

If anyone has any idea of anything else I can try, it would be much appreciated.
Thanks a lot,

Hopefully, you have since solved your problem. If you haven't, you might want to check out the settings on your router. By their nature, routers provide some firewall protection (especially inbound) and might be blocking access to some of your sites.
