This might sound a little weird, but try typing in the address of a thread (like this one would be http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/fr/580642/posts ) I've had similar problems with websites and for some reason occasionally if I try to access a particular page have gotten through.
My other suggestion would be to check and make sure you don't have any safety filters set to keep out obsenity, porn, whatever. Sometimes those things don't like FR either (I can't imagine why!). Check under Tools, Internet Options, then Content. Hope you get things working - cable modems rock .

I adjusted the "content" to allow anything, but no change.
