Only google won't load...

My connection issues here in Birmingham seem to have, at least temporarily, stabilized. (Big time knock on wood). Right now, it's only google.com and google.com/whatever that won't load. I'm seeing google ads and google maps, gmail are both OK and fast, not buggy. What could the deal be? McAfee and adaware free didn't find anything wrong.

i see you are going through opendns.

Temporarily, can you not go through opendns, to see if its an issue with their routing

How weird, for once the answer was easy. I took off openDNS and google loaded immediately. I really hope these connection issues with Charter hold up, but I'm not holding my breath just yet.

i figured it was opendns, based on your trace. the IP connection verified.

Glad thats all it was.

I have the same problems with OpenDNS. Google.com either won't load, or will take 10 seconds before it resolves the IP then loads. I'm probably going to just stop using OpenDNS.

Re: Only google won't load...

Hello,

I am having same problems... On the laptop Google.com/anything won't load. Googlemaps/gmail works fine. And Google works fine on desktop. Desktop is connected through ethernet wire, laptop wirelessly to modem/router combo to TW roadrunner in Rochester, ny. So i am guessing its some of my setting changed by themselves or virus. Nothing found by AVG or norton 360. What is openDNS and how to get to it?

Please help

Thank you in advance.

Tum

That's OpenDNS filtering google analytics and stuff like that. Depends on how you have your stuff setup through them. Of course it's going to slow you down, although when OpenDNS is working perfectly, you wouldn't notice it.

I gave up on OpenDNs some time ago after seeing hits on my router when first starting things up in the morning.

Back to using good old Level3 servers.
