Hi guys,

Every once and a while my Chrome browser displays Geekzone like its designed for a mobile device. Any one have any idea what's going on?

Chrome is up to date, Windows 7 64bit is updated and legal.
Tried disabling plugins, but the only thing that works is leaving the site and going back to it after a while.

Here are a few pics of what I mean...



It did it again while I was uploading these pics too.

Yeah, I get that sometimes, I blamed it on my ISP.
It's like half the page loads and the other half, css ads are on holiday.
And I get it happening in Firefox as well as chrome.

What IP do you get when you ping cdn.geekz1.com, what ISP are you using for DNS?

freitasm: What IP do you get when you ping cdn.geekz1.com, what ISP are you using for DNS?


202.175.128.164
Maxnet DNS

Also, It doesn't just happen with Chrome I found out. IE9 and Safari have issues too. (different computers)

My computers connect to my router for DNS services (Mikrotik) which then grabs Maxnets DNS, could this be the issue maybe? -I though doing this would speed up frequently visited sites.

Cheers

What could be happening is your ISP is using a proxy and causing these problems. The DNS is correct and the IP address is correct for New Zealand.

If I was to raise this issue with Maxnet, what is the correct terminology I need to use? Proxy for what?
