hi, i am not streaming - just trying to open the default BBC.co.uk/news site, and same for facebook.
I ran the standard speed checker, showing circa 4.5mb download and .37 upload.
Both sites are slow again now (i mean, not opening).
All other sites appear to be fine.
Sorry, the box ate my formatting
Yup, same here. Standard trio of sites that I know of, that suffer issues, are now not loading at this time.
Here's the offending url for BBC: static.bbci.co.uk. A content server I assume. I get one hop outside of my router and then it's 100% unreachable. 1 hop!
Target Name: static.bbci.co.uk

Destination not reached in 35 hops
Here's the next one: Steam content servers. The URL varies day to day but it will result in the pages not loading for minutes, and when they eventually load I have just text, broken images and no stylesheet: steamcommunity-a.akamaihd.net One hop, then thats as far as I get, 100% loss.
Third site that gives me grief is radiotimes.com. Currently also not loading. This traceroute actually pings all the way out to Newark nodes but they're over 100ms ping and the end host is unreachable. I can't tell what their content server is but I bet I wouldn't be able to get to it either.
So - what's the issue here? This happens every evening I bother to try loading these sites. These are big sites and not rinky-dink operations. Why are my connections dropping on the first hop outside my router? Is that the local exchange faulting?
Also note that streaming at this time or doing other intensive things like downloading will not have problems.
i've twice flushed the dns by running cmd as administrator, and the same thing is happening. Other sites are fine, but BBC and Facebook sites cannot load, or load incompletely.
It's happening again this evening. Flushed the dns cache to no effect. Can't load store pages on Steam or if they load they load after a minute or two with no content/formatting. Ping dies after the first hop past my router.
edit: as soon as I post about it, the problem miraculously fixes itself... Had been going on for a few hours previous to this.
same for me too! last night and during today fine, and now this evening, facebook and bbc again.
twitter and hotmail, yahoo...all fine.
