Re: [Line Problem] Bizzare DSL problem - some sites load, others

If you are in a house, you should have a NID box. Connect your modem to the NID box for a while, and check the statistics if you can. That will help determine whether the problem is in the house wiring or the telco lines.

If you are in an apartment, that might not be possible.

As for why some sites get through - shorter packets are more likely to get through than longer packets. The larger the packet, the greater the chance that it will be damaged by dsl errors.
