Windows 7: on some sites, incomplete page loading - both IE and and Chrome

on some sites, incomplete page loading - both IE and and Chrome

My PC was 100% until I moved from a hotel (temp) to my rented townhome.

I'm on a netgear router with Time Warner cable.

I compare my home PC to work and work PC handles all the listed websites (below) 100% correctly.


http://www.bicycling.com

Will not ever load (indefinite hang) on either IE8 or Chrome. But, I can ping it and it's fine.


This should say hotpads.com WITHOUT the www. prefix but it's being converted to a link by this forum software.

HotPads - Map Search for Real Estate, Apartments and Houses for Rent, Foreclosures and Homes for Sale for looking at rentals. It's similar to Maps.google.com whereby the map is composed of squares (unit of "download"). In IE, the regular map option won't work but aerial (satellite) and a hybrid DO. It fully works in Chrome.


Cycling Powermeters | SRM, Quarq CinQo, PowerTap, Garmin Powermeters works on Chrome but will NEVER come up on IE.

And on some websites (forums) there are supposed to be some little icons next to each post, but they never show on my home PC. But, they do at work or on my smartphone.

Hello Jim, will the sites load normal when viewed through a web based proxy?

Anonymouse.org

Hide My Ass! Free Proxy and Privacy Tools - Surf The Web Anonymously

If so, it sounds ISP related.

Is this a new router with your new location? If so, it's sounding like router related. I'm not sure where the fix would lie.

Pure genius. Using anonymous.org I CAN fully open the www.fascatpowermeters.com website. I can't test hotpads as it is forcing the \mobile version of the website. But, I can NOT open www.bicycling.com via anonymous.

The router is a NETGEAR provided by Time/Warner Cable. Said router has never been used at this address (rental).

I have never seen one particular fix for this, but it is almost always router related, and usually accompanies a new router. The sites may also open in safe mode with networking, which baffles me. If it is router related, why does it work when in safe mode? It still passes through the router. Makes me think it is security program related.

I will point others at your thread, but you might want to try a clean start to see if something is conflicting.

Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

You might also try copying your HOSTs file to another location, and deleting the one in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC as a test. Restore the file if no change. If removing the HOSTs file corrects the issue, you can reset your to default.

How can I reset the Hosts file back to the default?

My hosts file is all comments (#).

I've looked at my router (North Carolina) via 192.168.0.1 and there are hardly any settings I can change. Conversely, my Verizon router (Maryland) had a lot of settings you could change.

My startup (NON-services, STARTUP tab/applet) is pretty bare minimum. Skype, MS keyboard, Logitech webcam, iTunes, Quicktime, MS Security client, Java and StickyNotes.

On www.bicycling.com, for example, when I type it into the address bar and hit ENTER, the TITLE of the window changes immediately to that webpage meaning it's gotten something from that IP address. And quickly. But the green progress bar stalls.

When you look at the router, does it mention pppoe as the way you connect to the internet?

If so, see this post (and thread)

I saw that and my MTU needed no change: 1472.

NOWHERE on the router does it show anything about anything re: connection. It's got virtually no recognizable information as I'm used to seeing when viewing a router interface. Nada.

It's a Netgear CGD24G.

Here is a page showing the router interface. My CGD24G does NOT have the "setup wizard" alluded to.

You might try the troubleshooter. Right click the network icon in the system tray, and choose Troubleshoot Problems. Since you have the issue on 2 browsers, there must be something in common. Can you access the sites in safe mode with networking? A Guy

Ding ding. Turning OFF Javascript for IE8 fixed all the problems (but now obviously pages display strangely because it's turned off)...Now, what to do?

I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but at least 2 of the sites use XHTML, all 3 use Javascript and all 3 use some kind of google site verification. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable than me, can determine if that has anything to do with the problem, and how to fix it if it does.
