Websites won't load on I.E. or Firefox!

I don't know what happened to cause it, but I have a problem.

Just last week, I've noticed that both Firefox and I.E. have stopped loading specific websites. Particularly websites that I visit most often, such as deviantART. Whenever I try to access these websites through one of my browsers, it will load for quite a while, but will end up stopping on a blank white page. The website never loads - the icon next to the URL in the address bar doesn't even show up. It's just a blank white page.

However, I tried running deviantART through Google, and I clicked the "view cached text only" option, instead of loading the full website. All of the text shows up perfectly, but whenever I try to access the site regularly, all I get is the blank white page and nothing.

To try to verify that it was a problem with my computer, I tried logging on to my laptop. It's a seperate computer, and I plugged it in to the same connection I am using for this computer (a Comcast modem). To my suprise, the same websites did not work on my laptop, either.

Though, I've asked friends to try to access the websites I've been trying to go on, and they have all claimed they work fine. So, as far as I know, the sites aren't the problem.

I just don't know what to do anymore. I'm currently running Norton Internet Security / Antivirus and Spy Sweeper on my computer, and I do full system sweeps regularly. But I don't see that as the problem, hence I couldn't connect on a different computer, either.

Please help? I don't want to be banned from my favorite sites, anymore! :(

Is there any way to clarify whether I have a static or dynamic IP address? And if this is my problem, will I eventually be able to access the sites again, or is there a fix to it? If I just have to wait, how long would it be?

And I'm a beginner when it comes to dealing with topics like these, so I'm sorry if I sound slow.
Well, I'm using a cable connection by Comcast right now. I would expect my connection to be dynamic, though, hence - aren't static IP addresses limited by internet service providers?

But are there any solutions to my current problem, most importantly, if I do happen to have this issue?
Thank you for your help!

My ISP will hopefully give me some advice from here. :)
