I had been having problems with the Speed Tests here, in that they would start..but then never complete...just sit there....

I bypassed my Home Net router (DLink DI-614+) and went thru the DSL modem directly...and it worked !!

SO I went back thru my router and it doesn't work again....

The problem, in the end was that the Router's WAN setting for the MTU was at 1500.

Apparently this site's speed test, and Windows Update Site needs it to be set to MTU=1492. Don't know if other settings will also work, but 1500 did NOT.
