My French Car Forum is Being Throttled (Again) - But Why?

Hello all - last September , I posted that afternoon and evening connections to a France-based Citroen Car Club forum had slowed to a crawl, and often became unavailable. A flurry of dialog ensued, with the end result that the problem was resolved, with the help of a Comcast Tech.

Now, it's back. I was able to access the site, today at around 3 pm Pacific and make some posts. Now, it's totally inaccessible; the browser times out. Here is the link:

»www.autodejavel.fr

I have Comcast cable hi-speed internet, at about 20 mps download spped on average.

Thanks again for any help or suggestions you may have to help me get this fixed (again) ! Peter

It's down for me. Comcast does not have a vendetta against you... (By the way, "throttling" would be the slowing of data flow; a total non-display of the page would indicate the resource is down or is blocked and CC does not block sites)

Servers, websites etc do go down; especially in France. They surrender to the heat in those data rooms a lot (Had to lol)

The site is down. I'm checking on my Comcast connection, my Frontier FiOS connection and my Verizon Wireless. Can't get to it. Comcast doesn't hate you.

You'd think I'd have learned by now that "Throttled" just isn't what's happening to me! I will purge that word from my future posts - and thanks for reminding me again.

OK, so the site itself is the problem, you think? Not the connection to France then? I'll advice the webmaster, tout de suite, if that's the verdict.

As always, thank you very much, or as John Kerry likes to say, "Bonsoir"

The site is down for me on Comcast and Verizon. It's your site's server I assume.

You might want to use the tracert tool and see where the delays are.

BTW, your French based car forum appears to be hosted in Germany...

Yep, looks to me like there is just congestion along the route.

Nothing Comcast can do about it really.

Yeah, I guess it's intermittent now. It loaded earlier, albeit slowly, now not at all. Thanks all for the tests and comments, Peter

Comcast in Illinois -- handoff to Level3, then to 1&1... Drops packets starting at the 1&1 switch. I averaged 26% loss. I'd escalate it again.
