There are a number of reasons this could be happening, but the most common is that the "handshake" between your computer and the webserver didn't complete successfully within the allotted time, and this is usually not something you can control.  The webserver may have been busy, there may have been network congestion, the reply to your request from the server may have been corrupted, or simply lost.  Because it is "every so often" that you have this issue, it seems to be within the range of normal and is probably not something to worry about.

O and seem to be losing the style sheets as well, as all the text loads up funny.

You press F5 and it looks good again

2.5mb/s for more than 1 computer is a bit low, try getting a bigger bandwidth connection.

This seem silly as you would have to add every domain/ip you use.

That a lot!

Any other ideas?

If you are using wireless connections, consider connecting one computer with a wire to see if the problem gets better. If so, you may have interference on your communication channel that is contributing to the problem and the solution would be to change to a different frequency.

I think 2.5 Mbps is fast enough to support 4 users in general web-surfing and e-mail without dropouts.  For years big companies connected hundreds of users over 1.2 mbps T1 lines.  Faster is often better, but it probably isn't the problem in this case.
