And uh you think the registry "hack" to set the MTU lower would help or just te linksys is fine?
Whats odd is that it was working fine before and I havent changed anything...
Edit: I did some readin on the MTU and people complain about getting to the hotmail.com page but not being able to login. I dont even GET to the hotmail.com page, so dont know if its related...
I'll still give it a shot later on...

Windows has it's own MTU but your router has it's own MTU setting too. You'll want these to mesh up. Ethernet standard is 1492, but I want to say that it's different somewhere along the line.
It's based on how much data is transfered.. 1492 being the max size, so if it goes over, the packets get fragmented by the router, which inturn causes the problem.
I'd shoot for 1450 (any number really works, the smaller, the more packets, the higher, the larger the packets, but then it can stress the router). 1450-1470 would be good, since it adds 15 or 18 extra on top of that.
That's about the only thing I could possibly think of that would cause the problem through the router if it's still with default configuration..
Set windows and your router to have the same MTU.. there are programs out there to cover the Windows portion or you can do the reghack.. either way, but the programs tend to be nifty.

Did try to change it on my PC yet, not enuff time, Bt it didnt change anything on my router...
I heard about alernates firmware with more options for the linksys, I'll try to find some...Otherwise it might just be defective.
