[Extreme] Can Rogers slow down traffic to/from a specific URL


I gave up on torrents a while ago and I'm using a seedbox and cannot get on to the webui in firefox or IE or Safari to manage my files. I am able to enter my username and password, and then it hangs. I've tried this on a pc, netbook and ipad. I am able to connect to the same URL via FTP and can download, however I'm getting a mere 5 kbps! I tried downloading a file via FTP from my own web site and got pretty good speeds of 4.5 mbps.

The seedbox people in Europe say it's not them. I had a friend in Australia log in for me and he had no problems doing so. I've restarted my modem a few times and my IP has not changed.

Can Rogers slow down or disallow me visiting this particular URL? I do most of my downloading from there but it's really not a lot (maybe half of what I'm allowed).

I'm just trying to figure out how to troubleshoot this.

Thanks dauthiatull, you were right. Everything works perfectly this morning. I've had pretty good luck with Rogers quality lately, so I assumed it was something else.
