Thanks, I haven't had the problem since trying @JakeGould's solution, but this is useful information.

I have no option to force a mode on my router, but I disabled 802.11n in my wireless settings on my laptop which I hope does the same thing your saying. I'll report back when I can, I have to wait hours to see if any fixes work since it appears at random.

No backups unfortunately, I should have made one. I'll erase all my edits even though they're commented, all my changes are at the end of the file. What do you mean by invisible character? Would that show up in Notepad++ or Notepad? I edit all my files with Notepad++

@JakeGould Both of those. Whether my browser was opened or not, currently loading a page or not, every few hours webpages stop loading. On the bottom of the browser it says "Looking up google.ca"; or whatever site I try loading at the time, and eventually just gives an error (Server not found). It's not browser specific either. I mainly use Firefox, but I've tried Chrome and IE when the problem occurs and they won't load websites either.

I did edit the hosts file before, but all my changes are commented. It's not specific websites I have trouble with, but all of them. I have a Netgear router, but it's starting to look like I may have to change it.

@user3767013 I tried disabling IPv6 on my wireless connection, it didn't solve the problem.

Yes, I might, however I never had issues before. Regardless, I enabled a 5Ghz signal on my router, and tried it on my phone (my laptop apparently won't detect it anymore, but I'm sure it did before), but it didn't work.

Sorry, I forgot to mention I've also tried router firmware updates (I've edited my question). As for dns cache, would it simply be doing ipconfig /flushdns in command line? I've also tried that, and it's all websites that won't load, not only a select few.
