Hello,

I'm having a very strange problem on my sons Windows 7 laptop that I cannot figure out.

 

This is the problem:

One site (roblox) loads slowly, like it's dial up. The rest are fine.

This only occurs when a WIRED connection is in place, under WIFI, it loads fine.

 

Troubleshooting steps I have taken & my observations:

 

*This occurs under Firefox and IE.

*Other PCs in the house run the site fine, even on the same wire as his.

*The site loads slow when he is connected directly to the (rebooted) modem, ruling out the router config.

*I turned off his firewall momentarily to test, and site still loads slow.

*Dumped all temporary files, ran ccleaner until empty. Flushed DNS.

 

No proxies on either browser.

 

Strange anomoly. If anyone has any suggestions, I would be grateful.

 

Frank

http://www.roblox.com/Landing/Animated

 

You need to have an account/sign in, which is free.

We tried with several new accounts, same result.

It's a gaming site.

 

Correction:

 

OK, you can get to the offending page without signing in (which I also tried on his PC with same result)

Have you tried ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew ?

Yep, tried several static LAN IPs, and auto.

Even set the wired to the wifi LAN IP as a test.

Same results directly connected to the modem.

Thanks anyhow!

I gone to that site it loads fine for me, but I am also on 50/10 cable. I noticed they have a auto playing emebedded youtube video at the login screen. It plays fine for me maybe you're not seeing it? That would definitely cause issues with a website loading if the youtube video stream is having issues. If the video don't play well then it makes the whole website scripting fail. That's bad coding on their part forcing a download of a video while their site loads LOL. That's not very user friendly for people with slower connections. Furthermore, not to mention that it's a bandwidth hog.

I tried

ipconfig/flushdns

netsh int ip reset dellog.txt

netsh winsock reset catalog

with no positive result.

 

Whatever is on that site loads fine when connected via wifi. Wired connection displays the problem on that one site only, &  in all browsers. I am officially stumped. Gonna try a test install with another hard drive & see how that goes.

OK, put a windows 8.1 hard drive in there from another laptop, and it figured out all of the hardware by itself (amazingly), AND

the site works fine on a wired connection.

 

I also ran combofix on the problem installation, but it found nothing.

 

Guess it's time to reinstall windows 7, or a repair install.

Repair install has fixed the mysterious problem. Thanks for your input.

Really wish I knew the source of the problem, but sometimes I guess you don't wanna know!

 

Case closed.
