Some webpages won't open sometimes

Specs: Windows Vista
I made a post on some other forums (using their format), so I'll just paste it here:

o What doesn't work

Certain webpages (I'd estimate about 50% of the ones I try to open) don't open (They give some sort of network connection error).

o What does works

The other 50% of webpages.

o What you've tried

Restarting my computer works every once in a while. However, it can require up to three restarts to get it to work.

o Whether its dialup, cable, dsl,...

o Make and model of your modem

I cannot check at the moment, but I do not think this is the problem seeing as my laptop is the lone device out of about 8 that does not work.

o Whether you have a router (If you do then include the what make & model)

Wireless G Linksys router, I believe the model is WRTG40 (I will check in a bit to confirm).

o Do you have multiple PCs networked

Yes. As mentioned above, I have four PCs on the network, three of which are wirelessly connected (one of which, this one, does not work).

o Is it wireless or not (If wireless include the make & model of the wireless adapter)

Built-in Wifi on two laptops and a network card on the other desktop.

o Are you using Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)

I'm not sure what this is.

* The OS(s) you are using

Just realized this might have something to do with it...
Main desktop - Windows Vista Home Premium (no SP)
Other desktop - Windows XP Media Center Home edition (newest SP, SP3?)
Working laptop - Windows XP Home Edition (newest SP, SP3?)
Faulty laptop - Windows Vista Home Premium (SP1)

* What do you have for an IP address? (The IPv4 Address right?)

* What is your default gateway?

* Can you ping your default gateway?

Yes. (NOTE: These tests were done when the computer is working fine)

By the way, as you can probably tell, I am in no way tech savvy, so go easy with the technical mumbo-jumbo

Usually I use Firefox, but I've tested with IE and Google Chrome too.
