Looking up (site) taking a long time.

June 5, 2009 at 13:41:55
Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, 2.405 GHz / 3327 MB
I use Firefox. And recently my browser has been taking more time than ever before to "Look up" the site. for example it would say "Looking up http://facebook.com/.." and take anywhere from 30 second to 1 minute. Eventually it would do 1 of 2 things:

Either load the site fine and everything works,
or it would tell me that the address (which was entered perfectly) was not found as if I entered it in wrong or like it doesn't exist. It was just my computer, but now my brothers computer accross the hall has that same problem. My XBox360 (Both computer and xBox connected to the same Westell router) acts like I am not connected to the internet at all and I cannot connect to XBox Live in any way possible. I ran Malwarebytes and found 2 viruses and removed successfully I'm currently running AVG free 8.xxxx and will run SBS&D after completion.

Another thing is that Firefox asks to check my DNS Server settings when I fail to find the site. I repair my network and it says that it could not finish clearing the DNS cache, if that helps at all. I'm not too smart when it comes to networking.
