is this a brand new PC? did you try to change any settings before this happend? or change routers perhaps?

please try clear your cache and cookies offline. try to temporarily disable the firewall then try to connect and access some sites on those other browsers. On IE check for proxy settings. for the rest uninstall and reinstalls the browsers. please check your IP if your recieving 169.xxx.xxx., possible software conflict. or a configuratioin issue.

hope this helps

Not sure about Opera, but Google Chrome (in the case of some AV's) may require you to temp disable your Anti-Virus to perform a clean install. Once installed can re-enable Avast with no worries.

Let us know if things still not working and can dig deeper :)
