Connection Reset" at start up, not a proxy issue. Need to click try again multiple times before I get a webpage up.

I am using Firefox version 17.0.01 on Windows XP version 5.1, service pack 3.

Since the last 7 days when I start up my broadband I get the connection is reset page for all websites. After clicking the try again button and waiting for about 3 minutes, it will then display the requested webpages.

Any suggestions ?
