Question about Linksys Instant 802.11b Wireless Network Access Point: WAP11 (NTWRLSXWAP11)
Hi, I've just bought a new netgear DG834PN modem, and my ISP is Orange.fr. I'm having serious troubles accessing certain websites. Google loads no problem, but about.com doesn't for example. Some kind of load after about half and hour, like youtube.
Any ideas why this might be?
I've configured it using all default settings. I tried changing the DNS settings.
I'm using Mac OSX and Safari, all latest updates. I've emptied all caches. I've tried using Firefox. I've tried using ethernet cable and airport. Nothing makes any difference!
Does anyone have any suggestions how to fix this?! Is it an ISP issue? Or does the problem relate to the computer, or modem?
It's possible that this relates to your MTU settings. A clue to this is if you cannot access secure sites, or sites such as Ebay, Amazon, Google News, MSN, Hotmail.
If this does sound like your problem, try downloading the TCP Optimizer from Speedguide.net. This gives you an interface to examine and change your MTU settings (choose 'custom settings').
You might want to experiment by reducing your MTU, either in stages, or straight down to (say)1450.
For a full explanation of why you would do this, and how, check this page at the Netgear knowledgebase.
This may solve your problem, if MTU settings are the cause. However, if you choose to go ahead, please check out the warnings on the knowledgebase beforehand.
You are an expert user, so you will have set a rollback/system restore point in case the program or settings do not work for you.... :)
