Currently Being ModeratedJun 4, 2009 11:00 PM (in response to astondg)It sounds like a DNS server problem to me. If you are using your ISP's DNS server, try switching to OpenDNS instead. When my ISP's DNS server started giving me grief I switched to OpenDNS and never looked back.eMac (PowerPC G4, 1.25GHz, 1.5GB RAM, USB 2.0), Mac OS X (10.5.7)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 4, 2009 11:15 PM (in response to Király)Would that also affect IE 7 in Windows Vista? I'll double check when I'm in Windows next but I think they both have the DNS configured to point to my router (10.1.1.1) by default and it uses my ISPs DNS. I don't have this problem in Windows Vista on my MacBook. Or could a DNS issue affect OS X specifically?

Currently Being ModeratedJun 5, 2009 5:58 AM (in response to astondg)Ok, I put the OpenDNS IPs in my DNS list and I still have this problem. Interestingly it's behaving a little different tonight then it used to (before and after I added OpenDNS). While the pages are timing out I can still ping the servers for those pages and get results of around 300ms for overseas servers where as before I got no ping results. I can visit Google and the Apple website without issue so it seems to be restricted to certain websites and particularly (but not always) pages with images.
Any more ideas?MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 5, 2009 7:30 AM (in response to astondg)Well, I'm stumped. The fact that both Firefox and Safari are giving you this problem is very strange. Hopefully someone else will chime in. Good luck.eMac (PowerPC G4, 1.25GHz, 1.5GB RAM, USB 2.0), Mac OS X (10.5.7)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 7, 2009 7:57 AM (in response to astondg)This is the same issue as mine:
Can you ping your router when this occurs? If not, it's not DNS that's the problem.13" Macbook 2.4, 24" iMac 2.4, TimeCapsule (dual-band), Mac OS X (10.5.7)
