Internet wont connect to some pages, but XP does

This PC is dual boot XP and Windows 7 x64, on XP every page loads fine, on Windows 7 90% of the pages work, but some dont like mobilepassion.org, i have a laptop (xp) and another pc (xp) they load the page, just not Windows 7, funny thing is Windows 7 will work after reboot (or when first start) for the first minute, then mobilepassion.org and a few other wont load again, i get this error:

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

I have tried Firefox and Chrome, same problem, i have checked the Host list 127.0.0.1, all good there, its not blocked in firewall, as it loads for the first minute, also tried setting modem/router @ MTU 1492 and set Windows 7 @ 1492

This is very weired and i cant fix it, help pls

Could you tell us your network setup? I suspect you are running "homegroup" and IPv6 the XP machines dont use IPv6.

You can check by creating another connection using "workgroup" and it uses IPv4>

Wonderfull mate, i just un-joined the HomeGroup, and it works

I had un-ticked: Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) under Networkworking, Properites, and that dint fix it, had no idea it would have been to do with HomeGroups
