    I'm running ie with windows xp on my desktop. About every 3rd time I try to navigate to another page, website, or just backspace I wait at least 30 seconds (hourglass) until I get the "page can not be displayed" message. Once I click refresh the page appears normally. This happens with Firefox as well. My connectivity is good with my server. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

    The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

    If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL
    http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2357195 <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
    and your IP will be disguised.

    Copy/paste that link here.

    Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

    How are you connecting to the Internet. For example do you have a modem and a router? If so, you might try just using the modem. In that case it could be a defective router.
