I'm having a problem with my asus netbook running Windows 7, where periodically web pages (the pages themselves aren't consistent. Sometimes google, sometimes cnn, etc) fail to load. They don't ALWAYS fail to load, just enough to be annoying. When I hit stop and refresh it usually works, but sometimes it takes a few retries. Other times the page loads half-way before failing out.

This happens on Chrome, Firefox, and IE.

My internet connection is good, this doesn't happen on any of my other devices. I've tried flushing my DNS cache (because sometimes when the pages completely fail to load, I get a 'DNS failed to respond' message). I've run Microsoft's test application successfully. Any ideas?

Thanks
Dave

I get different error messages. Sometimes "Could not connect to www.amazon.com" (example) other times "DNS Lookup failure for amazon.com"
