Need help with a network issue
I'm having issues with some websites not loading for example twitter doesn't load some pics or steam is having issues showing some websites. When I restart the router it sometimes works for a few hours but then again. I'm having the issues on mobile as well as on PC. However, this seems to be a problem that only appears in my local home network, when I try the same thing in cellular network or in the university wifi it works without any issues. I don't know though if the problem is on my side or whether it's provider side. Any ideas how to fix this? The problem appeared maybe a week and a half ago or so, I didn't change anything in the network settings or such :/

If you need any more information I'd be happy to provide it as this is really pissing me off right now

open command prompt and try running these and see if the problem persists.


1.ipconfig /flushdns

2.netsh winsock reset


additionally you can do ping [website] to check your ping to that website

I don't think this would help as I also have the same issues on my mobile while your suggestion is only for the desktop part though.
Still thanks for the reply! ;)

What I could suggest is to run a MTR to one of the sites being broken. That way we can find out where it's causing the network issue.

If you do so run 1 before it breaks so when everything is fine and one when it's broken. Each for like a 5-10 minute range. Once done feel free to DM me the results.

If you do not know how to run a MTR look at this page but instead of a badlion IP use twitter.com
