I seem to be having quite a problem with internet usage on all of my 4 home computers. Many sites (like this) will load, however, there is a huge amount that don't seem to want to load or do anything. wikipedia, net2fpt,, Are just a few of the many examples. (iTunes store is also having problems)

Since it's happening on all my home computers, i've narrowed it down to either my router, or Vodafone.

Also, i've done a diagnostic test on my router. Most things passed but here are the few that didn't:

Test the connection to your ADSL service provider
Test ADSL Synchronization: PASS  
Test ATM OAM F5 segment ping: FAIL  
Test ATM OAM F5 end-to-end ping: FAIL  
Test ATM OAM F4 segment ping: FAIL  
Test ATM OAM F4 end-to-end ping: FAIL  

However, these may always be like this.

Please help!

(Don't tell me to reset my router.)

UPDATE: If I leave the pages in question for a while, they load, but only disply the html. Wierd huh?

Problem is at Vodafone's end. I think it's a DNS issue. I can access all the national sites fine but SOME international websites are taking forever to load like dailymotion. Youtube intermittently works but a lot of U.S and quite a few european hosted websites are taking up to 4minutes to load. Paul from VF knows about the problem and he will escalate it to the engineers tommorow morning.

Do whatever you want to do man.
