      need help... 1/5 of the websites only work!!

      Yes, thats right. Only about a fifth of the websites i visit only seems to actually load up. My internet speed is displayed below, but that is because of dlm. Does dlm also seem to stop websites from loading?

      I use firefox 3 and the main annoyance is that i cant search anything on google. google loads but when i try to search for aanything it just says "waitibng for www.google.com"... and stays like that. Windows live seems to work for some reason. is anyone having the same problem.?

      I am so glad i can access skyuser forums, hoping that one of you can help me out. Is anyone else having this problem? If anyone needs any info please post. Thanks.

      PS. about 4/5 of the time this problem occurs, but every once and again all websites seem to work perfectly.


      Pss. sorry for the grammer, borke my primary hand playing footy 2day and cant type

      Yes, i have tried using another 2 browsers and that does not seem to work. I also rebooted the router - if you mean keeping the hole at the back pressed until a orange tick comes up then disconnecting the power supply then reconnecting it. not working

      Oh no................... I just turned off the router... does that mean DLM will start all over again?? Its been almost 4 weeks now....

      As long as the router is not offline long it should be ok.
