    My problem is intermittent. Sometimes my internet connection is perfect, sometimes it's not. When it's not, any given page in any given browser will load 3/4 or 5/6 of the way, then stop loading and spin out.

    I have 2 PCs (desktop & notebook) and a MacBook. The MacBook is <1month old, and we use FF and Safari. Both the desktop & notebook (PCs) use IE, FF and Opera. All 3 computers use different firewall & virus software. I have cable internet, and I routinely get 10.5 to 11.0 Mbps download speed from www.speakeasy.net/speedtest. I have a Netgear router, with the desktop connected via cable and both laptops connected via wireless. When I bypass the router, the problem persists. I've reset both router & cable modem several times.

    Any ideas?

    You know it is not the router. See if you can get the modem checked out.

    I suppose I need to find a plausible way to have the modem accidentally break on me...

    Of course I called my ISP, and of course they assured me that nothing on their end could be causing my symptoms, and of course it couldn't be a problem with their cable modem.

    Could this problem be my ISP's fault? I don't see how it could... but, then again, unless it's a problem with the modem, I don't see what it could be to make it my fault.
