Windows 7: Issue opening websites, Facebook, MSN, Microsoft - IE9,FF10,Chrome

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Seems some issue with the bridged mode connection. It seems if I directly enable PPPOE connection on my Modem it works fine. If I connect it via DIR300 it makes it a bridged mode connection on the modem. There seems to be the problem. I removed all connection options on the modem and kept only 0/35 PPPOE Bridged mode connection on it with NAT and QoS enabled. Yet same issue.
