That was a guess based on the available info.
As you are possibly behind an *DSL line, there might be that someone drops
ICMP fragmentation needed packets. Read TCPMSS target in the iptables
manpage and add the appropriate rule(s) to the firewall.
Another possibility is an ECN hole somewhere between you and the
destinations: try disabling TCP ECN on the client and give a try.
