This is usually caused by an MTU error. While MTU discovery should take care of this by itself, sometimes it doesn't. This may be because of the site you are trying to reach, or it may just be another of those annoying Linksys quirks.

The solution which has worked for many is: Adjust MTU down in 20 byte increments and try again. Start at 1500 for a cable connection or 1492 for a DSL connection. You will eventually find a value which will allow the site to load normally.

  • I had the same problem, some website never stop loading, my router default MTU was 1492, so i reduce it to 1472 and everything is working perfectly now, thx a lot for the tip!
