Websites load unusually slowly

Many websites I go to such as YouTube or MSN etc. load slowly most of the time. SOMETIMES they load very quickly like they should, but most of the time my browser gets stuck on (firefox) "Connecting to something.something" or (IE) "Waiting for something.something". When it gets stuck like this, the website sometimes loads after about 20 seconds or gives me a "Network timed out" or "Taking too long to respond" error (the latter happens more often). Funny thing is Google ALWAYS loads very quickly (go Google!) but yeah.. as for most other sites ... :)

This problem started happening like 2 days ago. Yesterday I thought it was just something that would go away after one night but it hasn't :). I am connected to the internet via Ethernet cable so it's not a wireless issue or something. How can I fix this problem whatever it is?
