This problem has been reoccurring for around 4-5 days. I'll try to be as clear as possible to better help you, help me.
What happens - At random times my internet seems to freeze, what I mean is that when I try to open a webpage it will be stuck loading, on google chrome I have a message on the bottom left hand side of the screen that says "resolving host..." when this happens, I get no error message and the problem resolves itself after around two minutes, after two minutes I can browse again and have no problems until next time this happens, The next time I see this can be anywhere from 30 minutes to a day.
What's also strange is this seems to happen "Different" every-time, let me explain. So sometimes when this happens I cannot open Any pages at all, while other times I am able to open the page with the search results, but when I try to open a link from the results I get stuck loading and the resolving host message..
When this happens all my modem lights are on, and green as they should be as if I was connected.
When this happened last I opened "CMD" and typed in "ping www.google.com but got no messages, no "reply froms"
Other times I can not open any pages at all on Chrome, but when I try I.e the search results pages will load, but the search result page on chrome won't.
What I have tried to fix this issue this far -
Reinstalling google chrome
Restarting modem, as well as restarting PC.
Ran a virus scan using McAfee, as well as a Malware scan using Malwarebytes which are both clean.
I tried resetting my internet settings
My setup. I am on a desktop, using windows 8.1, I am connected to the internet using a wired connection directly to my modem with an Ethernet cable from my tower.
My ISP is optimum
