Problems loading web pages

Hi all, as stated in the subject I can't load any web page.
there is a short exchange of data that allows me to see the name of the websites in the explorer tab but the page, any web page, doesn't load.
This happened since when i changed the contract and i started using his voip service for regular phone calls.

I tried with an old adsl modem and experience the same problem.
Note that p2p programs as well as programs such as skype and netmeeting do work well (actually netmeeting conenctions don't last long) but even IE(ver. 6) detects probelms witht he http and ftp traffic when I select the "Diagnose Connection Problems "Tools" menu voice.
Any help woudl be appreciated.Note that there si no hw or sw firewall, the modem/router (tp link) has been configured with no port blocked and i tried all sort of dns settings. thanks in advance for your help.
BTW I am using tiscali as provider and I am located in Cagliari, Italy

    Thanks everyone, let em add some more info.

    In the past i tried to change the dns in every possible way both in the connection and in the router.

    I brought the pc to another house and with another connection (with the same provider) everything worked fine.

    Also i use my EEEpc in the home connection and experienced the same problem.

    Therefore I can affirm that there is no problem with the ethernet card the router uses, no port is blocked, no probelm with the router in itself since I experience the same problem when I use an old usb adsl modem, and no probelm with the pc.

    I used only IE6 so one thing i need to try is another browser but I didn't have it at that time.

    Since years I have spybot search and destroy as well as ccleaner that cleans temporary files every time I start the pc.

    There is also an old version of Norton Anti virus which has expired but AVG has been installed and several scans found nothing in the machine.

    One thing i will try today is using mozilla and setting opendns server settings.

    Thanks for your help,

    Does this happen when you use another kind of browser like Firefox?

    One of the problems with browsers (HTTP clients) is that they have a cache that creates problems. If you are using IE7, from the Tools menu, select Delete Browsing History and then delete temporary Internet files, the history, and possibly cookies. Make sure that you have enough free disk space as well, at least 10-15% of your hard drive.

Try to check your connection without the router , if the connection works fine without the router then we can assume the problem is in the router side then try to reset the setting and reconfigure it again dont forget to cal you ISP for the settings that you need to set on your router. If your getting the same problem without the router i suggest mavigozler option this will clear all the temporary internet file folder.

Cannot load web interface


You said that you cannot change anything on the router setup page, right? Have you tried to clear your browser's cache or used other browser or other PC to isolate the problem? There's a possibility that you are just seeing a web cache of the router's UI which could be the reason why everytime you change something it just goes back on the status page.

Scroll Issue

This is a very interesting problem.. Normally I would say the a router could not cause this kind of problem, but if the page is still loading, it could be possible.

When this happens, has the page finished loading all ready? The little circle of dots spinning in the top right of the browser if you are running firefox, will tell you if the page is still loading. There will be a similar icon for Internet Explorer too.

If the page has already loaded completely, then there is no way a router could cause the slow down. If you used the install CD that came with the router (no necessary by the way) then it could have loaded some "free" software on PC and this software is now slowing the browser down.

Does not finish loading data

I would start investigating from the browser. Which browser do you use? Internet Explorer?
Go ahead and download Google Chrome (a light weight browser) from, then install it and give it a try. If that solves it, that means your problem was due to the browser. You can either keep using Chrome, or download the latest version of Internet Explorer and re install it.
Good luck!

Fast Page Loads Slow Downloads

it really depends on how far you are from your Router. The farther you go, the weaker the signal gets resulting in slower speeds. Slower speeds will not affect web page load times (they are tiny parts of data) but will definately affect download speeds. You need to be as close to the router as possible or get perfect range. You can put the router at higher elevation in the room to get a better range to start with. Let me know if this works for you.

Yes, Netscape 6.2 will work properly with the web page-based interface used in D-Link DSL routers, however, due to problems the browser has loading Java applets and working with Java scripts all of the features may not be visible. Netscape 4.7 does work with the interface, but is extremely slow in loading the various configuration pages. For these reasons, it is recommended to use Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x or 6.0 to configure D-Link DSL routers. Internet Explorer loads the pages faster and Java applets work properly, as shown below. Note the tree in Fig. 1 (using Internet Explorer), representing the routerĀ“s various configuration pages and in Fig. 2, the PPP Connection information. Using Netscape 6.2 as shown in Fig. 3, the configuration tree is missing and in Fig. 4 the PPP Connection Information is not displayed.
