rosbif is on a distinguished road

I'm having major troubles accessing some websites. Only certain sites will load. For example, I have no trouble accessing but is a no go. Other websites load after about half an hour- like

Can anyone help me sort this issue out?

I am using the latest update of Tiger and am connecting using wifi, via Safari and a Netgear DG834PN wireless router. A friend using Leopard is having the same problem. And using Firefox instead makes no difference.

This is a new modem and these problems started when I started using it. When I connected it up, I used all the default settings and used automatic configurations via the configuration wizard software. I tried manually changing the DNS settings to openDNS but that stopped the connection working altogether. That's the only thing I've changed manually. I've also tried to 'reset' Safari.

There's a Netgear troubleshooter "Troubleshooting internet connection" but- ironically- it's a website, and it's one that will not load.

If it is not the router, it could be because of the fact I'm trying to do this in France. My ISP is I bought the router in the UK. Could this be causing problems?

If anyone can help, please let me know as this is driving me nuts!
