When viewing sites it feels like my sessions are timing out (not the proper term, but it's how I'd describe it). Checking GMail for example, inbox may load fine, but then when I try to view emails under a label I wait ages seeing the "Loading..." and then "Still Working..." appear at the top of the screen. Right now my GMail's chat is unable to connect.
Another example is when clicking a hyperlink then waiting forever for it to load. This happens on all sites in all browsers. If I have a page trying to load forever in one and then I open it again in a new tab, then fiddle about, maybe closing the first one, the second will load, as if the request has gone through this time. I also have connectivity problems with steam, seeing the constant "Lost connection to Steam, will rejoin chat automatically when connection regained." pop up in chat windows.
This was happening last week for 3 or 4 days, however, and quite coincidently, once tweeting my problem to Orcon it fixed itself. Now it seems that it's back. I restarted my router last night and it seemed to be fine for the remainder of the evening but now the problems are back. Pages just taking forever to respond, when they do it's fine and they load but it's annoying when you're trying to pay for something online and you're not sure if the payment's gone through or not cause the page won't load.
So I realise this could be a router issue but was wondering if there's anything I could do testing wise to find out what the real problem is (monitoring http traffic maybe?) so that I can then be more specific when talking to Orcon.
Any advice would be appreciated.
