View Full Version : IE 11 Extremely Slow in Loading Pages - No Identifable Reason

About 72 hours ago, Internet Explorer 11 began having serious difficulties in loading pages. Pages take often 30 some seconds or more, especially if if I am switching from one page to another (like here to Wikipedia). On a few occasions, the pages won't load at all, only to load when I attempt it once again.

I have both Chrome and Firefox on this machine as well, and neither have this problem whatsoever. So it does not appear that it is an internet issue at all. This make sense, as I didn't fiddle with any settings at all before this problem started, excepting that the only thing that could possibly have changed is that I restarted my router and cable modem. But I retained the same IP address and no settings on the modem have been altered.

How should I go about tackling this issue and what other information do you need from me?

I am running Windows 7 Home and I'm on a 50/5 mbps connection on a desktop connected wirelessly.

I know it may not "define" the issue for you exactly, but it could very well solve it.

Sometimes the DNS servers just flatline. If you have a router it's likely pulling the ISP DNS. Some newer routers have 3 fields to enter DNS. You could enter your ISP's two DNS manually and then last field enter Googles DNS 8.8.8.8, or 8.8.4.4. That way after the failure it'll resolve through Googles servers.

How is that relevant in a case where two browsers work correctly but one does not?

I think you're off down the wrong path mate. The addresses are resolving, but the data is not loading correctly in the browser.

Could be a variety of reasons... easiest to just reset the browser as it is established it is not a system-wide issue.
