Try resetting your router and then check if it still causes the same issue.

by resetting the router you mean unplug it and give it a min. then plugging it back up right

if you disconnect your router (why would you?) then connect to modem--it's NOT necessary to reboot---just go to Device Manager--choose your 'network adapter'--disable it--then enable it

"would that reset my ip as well"

if you have your machine set to a static IP address--then the answer is no.

other than that--broadband internet connections are based on the IP address of the 'modem' and most people just use the standard router configuration with dynamic IPs for their machines through the DHCP server settings--if you have a 'static' IP address on your machine, you will need to reset it to 'obtain IP address automatically' in your network connection control panel and possibly also change DNS server to 'obtain DNS server address automatically (I believe the DNS server will automatically change when you change the 'obtain IP address..' setting)

here is a firefox hack that 'might' speed thing up a bit:

1.Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return.
Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining
network.http.proxy.pipelining
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time.
When you enable pipelining it will make several at
once, which really speeds up page loading.

2. Alter the entries as follows:

Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”

Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”

Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer.
Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0″.
This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.
