Can't Connect To Certain Sites

This happened very suddenly 3 days ago.
I couldn't access sites that wouldn't be down. Like: Google, Yahoo, Paypal, Wikipedia

I reset my router, and these sites work again, but then, other sites can't work.
It's just some random sites.

I reset the router again, the ones that don't work are working again and a new
set of sites don't work anymore.

Up to the point when things were working fine, I was using Google's DNS

I've tried:
- flushing dns
- resetting hosts file
- connecting directly to Aztech modem
- turning off Windows Firewall
- checking router settings

Nothing works.

After all that, I tried changing DNS between Google's, OpenDNS, and automatic(my ISP's)
Weird thing is that not a single site can load when using Google's DNS, not even google.com
With OpenDNS, I managed to load a couple sites, however, Yahoo was loading very very slow and the page was all messed up.
With automatic DNS, much more sites can be loaded (including Google and Yahoo)

I'm just confused and puzzled with this problem.

I'm running Windows 7
Router: WRT54G2
Modem: Aztech DSL605EU

What other info do you guys need?
P.S. I can't connect to this site too. Had to log into my VPS to write this thread.
