Internet Connection Problem
On Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit running on a AMD Athlon II X2 processor on a wired connection to the internet via Dlink Dir-857 and a Cable Modem both Firefox and Chrome cannot load some websites at all (appears to be those who transfer from straight http to https formats) and most others they never finish loading (i.e. symbol by the name in the tab on Firefox keeps spinning). This was not a problem on this system prior to upgrading from 12.04 LTS and installing the new Router.
I have tested the network with multiple Wireless connections with the same router and modem and there are no problems with our Blackberry, a Android/Chrome combination, Windows/Internet Explorer, Ubuntu 12.04/Firefox and Chrome - all of these combinations work fine. I have also tested with a second wired machine running 12.04 and that one works fine - hence not the router. Swapping out the cable between the machine and router does not fix the situation - hence not the wire since it worked fine in other test.
Somehow my network connection on the 12.10 machine is confused. The following is the output from

In response to the Comment: Pinging 188.8.131.52 works with 10 pings and 100% success. The issue went away suddenly, hence my not responding until now, however it has re occurred with exactly the same symptoms. I am beginning to wonder if it is possibly a hardware issue. Any quidance will be appreciated.
