OT: tech help? Can't load Bruins Nation at home!


My home computer doesn't want me to read BN, so I'm hoping there are some fellow Bruins that might be able to help me out. A couple of weeks ago, my browsers started to load pages very slowly: typically I'd need to click on a link/bookmark a second time to actually make things start to load. Over the last week or so, many pages simply don't load. I can view Google and Wikipedia consistently; most other sites, even Google Calendar, are hit-and-miss. BN on Firefox (which I use nearly exclusively, normally) will load the bar down the left side with the BN logo, sections, more SBNation blogs, etc., and the top bar including home, fanposts, fanshots, etc. - but nothing more. No content down the middle and no fanposts/fanshots on the right. IE will load the same portions and frequently the lead story (as I write it's Hoops Day Roundup, for example) up to the comments/recs line...but no stories beneath. The same happens on Chrome.

Nobody else uses my computer, as I'm the only PC person around. I don't do anything like BitTorrent nor am I stupid enough to click on any links in unknown emails. My email (Thunderbird) works just fine, and the wireless throughout the house gets every other computer online just fine, so it's not an ISP issue. Every other piece of software works perfectly. Any possible theories would be appreciated - I can at least get my fix by reading BN on my iTouch, but would much rather have a full screen and the ability to use a full keyboard to comment. Thanks!

(possibly relevant) system details:

WinXP on a Dell desktop

internal Linksys wireless-G card; Apple AirPort a couple of rooms over
