So this peculiar problem has started on my Mac running OS X 10.6.8.
Every time I open Opera/Safari/Google Chrome to surf the web, certain web pages do not open.
Google.com opens after a 20-25 second wait (which is not normal).
If I search for another website like macrumors.com, the page will take a long time to open and then say "Network problem: Check that the address is spelled correctly, or try searching for the site." This problem occurs on both my Mac as well as my iPad. If I go back and refresh the page, the same message will be displayed on screen instantly (it won't attempt to reload the page).
I tried pinging www.google.com and 192.168.1.1 for which my results were:
PING www.l.google.com (22.214.171.124): 56 data bytes 64 bytes from 126.96.36.199: icmp_seq=0 ttl=46 time=403.227 ms 64 bytes from 188.8.131.52: icmp_seq=1 ttl=46 time=400.221 ms 64 bytes from 184.108.40.206: icmp_seq=2 ttl=46 time=402.390 ms

Also, I use a DLink wireless modem router (DSL 2750U)
Any ideas what the problem may be?
PS: I do not know how to use terminal properly, so please dumb down the suggestions for me as much as possible :)
