Odd recurring problem.
Using Mac OSX 10.6.5 and a Draytek Vigor 2820 router for my Zen connection.
Over the last 5 / 6 weeks, I've repeatedly had a problem with the internet "stalling".
The router reports the connection as working and I can download pop 3 mails via OS X Mail, but if I open Firefox or Safari I cannot get pages to load. This doesn't happen all the time, but maybe once or twice a day I just cannot get pages to load even though the router is connected and I can still email or use an FTP client.
I can either wait 5 / 10 minutes and suddenly everything will work normally again, or I can tell the Vigor to drop and then redial the PPPoA - in which case the net will work again within half a minute.
I have checked the DNS settings and reset the router, but I still have the same problem once or twice a day. Not a biggie as I can get back online again reasonably quickly . . . but if anyone has any ideas, I would be grateful to hear them.
I doubt, therefore I doubt I am.
