    My friends having a few internet problems.

    His router connects fine and everything is normal, he can load google but no other sites will load. However he can 'ping' them and get a responce. Bit comet downloads are working and windows messenger, but not normal msn.

    He hasnt changed any settings and he has even tried turning off his firewall. Doesnt seem to have any dodgy processes running. And he has tried reseting his router settings etc.

    He has tried several computers, so that would suggest it definately isnt due to his pc. Oh and he has a Netgear DG384v2 router with the newest firmware.

    As far as he knows his ISP arnt doing any upgrades either. His ISP is Telecom plus The Utility Warehouse.

    Any ideas on what could be the problem?

    Except for the slight snag that the OP isn't on NTL.
