Ok, I recently configured a Windows 2003 AD Domain for COMPANY A. COMPANY A and COMPANY B are owned by brothers. COMPANY B uses comcast cable internet and COMPANY A uses SBC/SNET DSL. They wanted to share a single connection and split the bill instead of paying for 2 since niether use anything that requires high bandwidth. Well, I set everything up, and they each had their own sepeteate networks and each had shared internet and it was fine. Only thing is, SNET DSL doesn't allow you to send pop3 email when you aren't connected to their service. Because of this, COMPANYA decided to just keep DSL as they had it before. So I setup PPPOE on COMPANY A's router and nothing really needed to be reconfigured other than that. To get to my question.... The problem they are having now is reaaaaaally slow internet, but wait... their email is instant, and SOME SITES are also very fast. for example google.com and orbitz.com and msn.com are as they should be, fast and loaded properly. well now, SOME OTHER SITES like hp.com and microsoft.com won't load at all and just time out. what the hell is causing this? they called the ISP and there are no known outages and i don't think it's a netowrk bottleneck because it was doing it last night too. I dunno what the hell would cause this. any ideas?
