Is anyone else having problems browsing intl sites ?
For example, I seem to be able to view a couple of pages on apple.com , then I get network timeout messages (Firefox).
I wait a few mins then try again and can view another couple of pages before it dies again.........

Was also having issues signing up for a new gmail account, kept timing out as well....  Geekzone and Herald seem to run OK.

No trouble at all, and Apple is nice and fast.  I'm also using Firefox.

Haven't been able to access Windows Live Mail all afternoon. Just plugged in my Vodem, and that connected just fine.

Also now having similar problems with youtube.com

Can view a few videos without a problem, and then they just stop.
Apple.com seems to vanish off the internet for me for 5-10mins before I can use it again, and youtube now lets me view some clips and then just stops streaming. The site itself responds but not the videos, they just start buffering then stop.

Its not my computer at fault as my wifes laptop does the same thing.

Any ideas ?

Not running any filtering/firewalls etc.
