[DELETE] Attn. computer geeks. Many pages won't completely load. Some won't open at all. WTF?? MiddleSchooler New
[DELETE] Could be a DNS lookup problem. Open a DOS box and use nslookup to test your DNS... rlhartman New
[DELETE] Thanks for the great instructions!! Sorry to say though, it didn't work. MiddleSchooler New
[DELETE] By "no timeout", do you mean that DNS lookups all resolved properly and promptly? rlhartman New
[DELETE] OK, it appears you are able to access FaceBook's webserver. Were you experiencing the problem when you ran these tests? rlhartman New
[DELETE] Interestingly, I can get on Facebook fine before 8:30 Mountain Time. <NT> MiddleSchooler New
The thing that gives me pause is your comment that when you're having these problems, other websites continue to work fine. Network equipment is generally source and destination agnostic. That suggests a congestion problem, something only your provider could resolve. Your provider has one or more backbone connections to reach the Internet. If the one that is used for, say, FaceBook is reaching its capacity limit, then you could see selective slowing as people pile on at various times of day. A traceroute would reveal that but it would have to be run when the problem was occurring.
When you're having the problem, have you tried to (I apologize in advance for this) call your provider and have them run tests against your modem? If you manage to get to someone with a brain, they do have the ability to run tests against your in-home equipment. They can also confirm if THEY see the problems that YOU are seeing at that moment - and if they do, it's obviously their issue since they are "inside" their own network.
