Dafson is on a distinguished road

After the last update again i have connection problems.
First of all i don't have a wireless connection, so no airport issues with me
In Safari (also camino or FF) the pages won't load (or keep hanging at for example 90%) and i constantly have to refresh the pages to be able to view them. Most of the time it works after 1 or 2 attempts.
Downloading a small movie or picture, same result. Sometimes it starts downloading and than it keeps hanging until i cancel and try again and it does the job.
This happens from time to time in too. Downloading email and suddenly it's at 0kb. Relaunch Mail and no problems.
Same issues in the built-in browser from Netnewswire for example. So i can say it's not an app related problem.
I did a combo update (not thru software update), made a new connection, Applejack, repaired perm.,cache cleaning, openDNS, ... nothing works.
This is the 2nd time i have trouble with an update, i guess i will stay away from them in the future
Hopefully someone with a brilliant Mac-brain can help me.
I own a iMac 24", 4gb ram, adsl modem (NO WIRELESS)
QUOTE Thanks

Do you use a modem-router ?
Restarting the modem router will help sometimes.
Both my MAC BOX as my LINUX BOX is connected to the router and sometimes I can not reach any web page until I restart the modem-router.
Do not know if it works in you case
QUOTE Thanks
