    i know that Google, Gmail and Youtube are all the same company

    it can't be a coincidence that all 3 of these sites are either not responding or taking forever to respond for the last 3 days

    is anyone else having this issue ?

    i can remember the same thing happening a few years ago

    it's happening with all 3 browsers too

    reboot your modem and run this command:

    ipconfig /flushdns

    that command just flushes the DNS queries out of your system and forces it to look up up the latest valid ones. I doubt thats his problem, but YouTube is not down.

    Is your internet running shitty on all devices?

    do you have cable? If so screw the cable out of the wall, break the connection reboot your modem.

    I think it kinda makes the computer do a new handshake with your service provider...

    i went to the Comcast office a few months ago and got their latest newest fastest bestest router access-point wireless gateway

    i'm supposed to be getting 150 meg down but i only get 100 meg because i have an older network card that maxes out at 100 megabits. i would need a gigabit card to get the 150 meg

    the new modem is also dual channel wi-fi 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz

    the main thing i noticed is the wi fi covers the whole house now. even with the door closed in my computer room and my computer room is on the main floor all the way over on the very end over the house

    wasn't really a big problem. i have Ethernet cables run to all the rooms i use especially for my blu-ray player in my bedroom

    but when my door was closed, my boy toy was having trouble using his xbox one but with the new modem that is no longer an issue
