I am connected to my router by ethernet on my desktop. On my laptops, I am connected wirelessly.
Only on my desktop do I see this issue: Quite often, a page will sit at Firefox's "Problem loading page" until I click the "Try Again" button a couple times and it works. This happens to sites like Google, Yahoo!, and many others. Then sometimes, a page will be loading (visibly, you can see the page coming up) for about 3 seconds then switch to that page, where I'll again have to refresh until it works. This only happens on my desktop, which is using a stronger (wired) connection. Why?
