This is more than likely an issue with certain ports. Do the sites you are having problems with start with https instead of http?

Also I have heard of issues with MTU size sometimes being a factor.
Cheers,

Linksys just released a new firmware that should solve the problem. I'm applying it today. It seems to be a known problem...

Thanks LucF for the info, yes after I applied the firmware the problem solved. One thing I liked about this model of linksys routers is I did not had to reset the router for the firmware to be applied. A restart of the router (automatically done after the firmware is applied) was enough.
