Hi Larry, have a look here: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum38/6...king-into.html
When I click the classifieds, I keep getting a box that says the server needs my user name and password. when i enter them, I get a page that reads that you are down for repairs, and to check back in one hour. I've been doing this for several days
Well the speed increase I noticed early on was a very short lived phenomenon for me.
Never been faster here, page loads are almost instant and that's across the globe so not sure what's up with your connection. Try marking all your posts as read and see if that helps or reset your internet router..
I talked to my ISP about it, since it happens on another website (the CBC) as well. They gave me a speed test to try a few times a day, then I'm to call them back. When I first get on to APUG, it's fast. Then over the next hour it will slow to a crawl. I tried the speed test when I first got onto APUG (when it was fast) and then again after it slowed right down, and the result was the same - 106/107 kb/s download speed on the test. This is not as fast as the ISP expects (they say it should be a minimum of 130). I'm on a satellite service and have a wireless router by the way. My computer is a 2 year old Sony Vaio laptop.
If this happened on all websites I'd have no hesitation in blaming the ISP, but it doesn't.
I mark my posts as read every day, and restarting the router doesn't help.
I downloaded a network meter a week or so ago, and it averages way slower speeds than the speed test showed. APUG and the CBC just hang up for long periods and a message at the bottom of the screen says "waiting for APUG" or "transmitting" - which it isn't, according to the network meter. Pushing the refresh button works for a few seconds.
I have to call the ISP back tomorrow, but I'm sure they're going to say it's not their problem. Probably not APUG's either, which means I'm just venting.
