Question about Belkin (F5D5231-4) Router
Temporarily disable your firewall and optimize bother browser and Internet using some reliable optimizer such as Reginout. Thanks

It could be a conflict.. but the main thing is there really is no reason to have a 3rd party firewall installed on windows, it has it's own firewall, then you have the firewall built in to the router, all mcafee's firewall is doing for you is taking up resources and potentially causing conflicts.
I would remove that firewall and see if that helps, if not, reset the router to factory defaults (there should be a reset button on the router) and configure it again, possible that it was not set up correctly or got corrupted somehow.
With the introduction of Windows 98 SE Service Pack 2, there is no reason to have another firewall installed.
Hope this helps
