Lately (past 2-3 days), I’ve been having quite a few troubles loading webpages from Kongregate.com. I would say about half the time it works, and half the time, it just never loads. The error I get (in Chrome) is:
Error 118 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT): The operation timed out.
Sometimes, the page will load, but not the game. if the game has loaded, and I try to access the high scores tab, it also may or may not load. Forum pages are also affected, it seems anything from the www.kongregate.com domain.
I tried a ping test, and I don’t see any dropped packets.
$ ping www.kongregate.com -n 30

Note: I am NOT having this problem: constant chat disconnects. Chat stays connected and is fine. High scores also submit reliably. It’s only when I need to GET pages from the Kong site where I’m having issues.
For some reason, it seems to affect Chrome a lot more than Firefox. In Firefox, it’s working 95% of the time. I’m typing this from Firefox now.
This may or may not be related to when I moved my furniture around (including the stand where my router/cable modem rests) on Wednesday. But that doesn’t make sense to me. (I have tried rebooting my router anyway).
