Webpages Won't Load at Random

Specs: Windows 7
Hi There,

I have been having an on going problem for some time now with my internet connection.

Put simply if I use a site for awhile, opening pages from within in tabs etc eventually the pages stop loading. Pages from other sites will open, but pages from within the site I'm on sit loading, until timing out. Closing and re opening the browser does not help.

If I wait 5-10 mins. The site goes back to normal again, but if I use it for another 10 or 20 mins, the same cycle starts again. Examples of sites are, Google, Youtube, BBC News, Facebook. All common stable sites.

I have no idea where the problem is stemming from. I have moved ISP's (no change) changed modem/router (no change) I even reformatted and went to Window 7, still no change. The problem also happens across all browsers, IE8, Firefox and Chrome.

Currently I'm on an ADSL2 connection. I've searched online for an answer, but none of them seem to be the same as this. Has anyone encountered this?? It's driving up the wall.

Thanks in advance.

According to all you've done, the problem sounds like it's on the ISP's end but to be sure, have a friend bring a laptop & connect it to your router with a cat5 cable. Shut your PC. See if the same thing happens.

Thanks for the reply. The thing is I think I can pretty much rule out ISP because I had to move apartments, and changed to a totally different provider. I hoped the problem would finally go away but no dice...

You also said that you installed a completely different version of Windows, which would rule out software. I guess the only thing left is your network card, cat5 cable, bad or lose memory or something else inside the box.

So maybe the network card then? The cable is also new.. I just wasn't sure if there was some other setting somewhere that could be affecting it in spite of a fresh install of the OS. I can't beleive how much trouble this has been! Thanks.

You can still try my suggestion. Have a friend with a laptop connect to your router. See what happens.

If all is well, re-seat or replace the NIC.
