Intel Mac, 10.4

In the past week, my computer suddenly started getting hung up on websites. Here is what's going on:

The network/Airport signal is fine. A nearby laptop has no internet connectivity issues and web pages load easily.

The problems occur via ethernet or wireless connection. I've gone back and forth with the Network Diagnostics utility. The conclusion always is that the computer has normal and functional internet connectivity but one of the steps is an Airport reboot.

Turning Airport off/on will always restore stalled loading of a web page.

Internetconnect and iStumble show consistent max signal from the modem.

Problems occur when using Firefox or Safari.

Hyperlinks within a website sometimes load easily and fast (at least for a few minutes) but opening a new website in a new tab or window always stalls the browser.

Stalls sometimes resolve themselves, other times they time out without an Airport reboot.

Pages with images are especially difficult to load and sometimes hang up with partial downloads.

This all came up very suddenly and I've gone through several reboots and I've repaired permissions but the problem persists.

Any ideas?

I have the same problem, IMAC. I called Apple and they can't fix. Don't think it's Safari because same happens on Firefox. Everything reset and rebooted. Ethernet same so not Airport. My laptop on same network works fine. Really annoying.

The same thing is happening to me in regards to website stalling. I was going to install firefox but thanks to the last post I won't anymore. Initially I used a widget called "ip reconnector" which I thought helped at first but later on the problem persisted. So as of today I deleted the widget and am looking for new ways to tackle this problem. Any help is appreciated. I recently installed google notifier for mac and have a feeling it's been happening since, but i'm not sure. Does anyone have a fix?
