Internet wont connect to some pages, but XP does

This PC is dual boot XP and Win7 x64, on XP every page loads fine, on Win7 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 Win7, funny thing is Win7 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 Win7 @ 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
