For that failing sites you can run the typical network tests, like a 
traceroute, a ping, a dns resolution... also, try with different browsers 
(Opera, Firefox and Chrome) and you can even use an online proxy.

Okay, so it seems there is no telnet service available in route :-)

How about a simple "wget"?

Looks like a javascript error/warning but not enough to tell if just this 
can prevent the whole page from loading :-?

Really, I can't see how your network configuration can be a problem here. 
If you have setup static values for your NIC and you can ping/reach your 
DSL router you should get the same you get when using a Windows client.

There is no more magic behind an ethernet device and that's precisely its 
best bet: it works regardless the OS and does not require for special 
drivers :-)
