For the last 3 days whenever I go to gmail.com or go to google.co.nz and click on 'gmail', it takes about 30 seconds for the gmail login page to load. All other google sites like news,maps load instantly. Anyone else having this problem on telecom broadband?

the problem seems to be fixed now. i'll try over the next few days. If I do decide to do a traceroute how can I do this without giving away my ip address to the whole world to see?

Just drop the first couple of hops from the text you paste if you're paranoid about it

Tracing route to gmail.com [66.102.7.19] over a maximum of 30 hops:

3 1 ms 1 ms 1 ms ge-2-0-0-948.internet.ie1.telstraclear.net [218.101.61.57]

You're being way too paranoid. all the way through to hop 8 the addresses are there anyway (except hop 2) and hops 9-13 are more interesting.

In any case, 200 odd ms to gmail is fine. I don't think it's your raw connectivity at fault here.

Cheers - N

Oh no! Your computer is displaying an IP address :)
FYI there wasn't any need to mask anything- the first IP would be an internal network IP and the rest is open and public on the internet anyway (in fact many users would share the same route)
I get the same 200ms to gmail.com when connected to my Telecom router over wifi.. it's fine like TalkieT says :)

i was using google chrome. i tried internet explorer and gmail loaded perfectly.  i am not using google's dns. i am using telecom's obtain address automatically. oddly gmail now works perfectly in google chrome so maybe telecom fixed the issue. why would IE work and not chrome?
