I've got two computers on my Linksys network, one wireless, one wired - with Sympatico High-Speed service. I very frequently get download stoppages - where a page load will freeze for, like, 20-60 seconds. This happens several times an hour. It is not: - my wireless connection (which shows 11Mbps at all times, and has a decent signal strength) - my DSL pipeline (I have had it checked - it's actually 3rd-party resell from Sympatico, so I'm in direct contact with them) - LAN traffic (only one other computer, wireless network is WEP-enabled) - happens on all sites (I might get the hang on site A, which I frequent, but going to Google doesn't fix the problem.) I've been testing whether ftp and email gets tied up at the same time as my browser, but no conclusive results yet. I've tried running a program called BitMeter, but I don't know what that's supposed to do for me - when these stoppages occur, bitmeter tells me there is no u/l or d/l occurring. Duh. Any more ideas I can try?
