i've been holding off on posting this because i couldn't quite explain it, but this has been happening for quite some time... Dual 2.7ghz G5 PowerMac Connected via ethernet to router (WRT160n v2) DNS servers set to Earthlink's specific DNS servers Search domain set to google.com (and san.rr.com) Internet works, but sporadically. It will work, then it will hang. I can visit a site, browse around, then it'll just sit and say "Loading". It will give me an error that the page can't be found. I refresh and it immediately comes up fast as ever. This happens with any browser and has happened with two different routers. I constantly watch iStat Pro and it shows no information going out or coming in until it errors out and I hit refresh. The other laptops on our network don't have this problem wirelessly or via ethernet. I've done enough testing to know that it has to be my G5. As I type this, my Gmail notifier has shown that I have 2 messages, then go to the error indicator, back to that I have 2 messages. Something isn't staying connected here and I don't know where else to look. I've made network changes, connected manually, connected directly to the modem, etc. Nothing seems to fix the problem. I even tried OpenDNS and that hasn't fixed it either. Anyone?
