I have Comcrap's Blast service and every speed test shows a consistent 40-50 megs down and 6-10 megs up. I've checked my PC for spyware, malware, and everything else. Everything shows up squeaky clean and free from any malware. Despite this, at many times during the day, especially late night between 11:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. CDT, whenever I enter the URL for a website, it takes me a very long time to get to that site's home page and navigate through it. I started timing it the last couple days. It is taking anywhere from 3 to over 5 minutes for web pages to load. This is absolutely unacceptable. It's just like the days of dial-up. I've used Open DNS, Google's DNS, and other similar options, but those don't make a difference. With or without that, I'm still waiting forever to access web pages. BTW, it doesn't matter what web site it is, either. News sites like WGNTV.com; retail sites like Amazon; social sites; forums--all of them take forever. Any idea what can be the cause of this? Comcrap people seem baffled. BTW, I'm connected via hardwire, direct connection. When I thought the problem was my router (a newer wireless G and N one, too, BTW), I decided to connect my PC directly via a Cat 6 cable. That didn't matter, it seems.
