Hello /g/,

Before I start, I'd like to make it clear that I am an intern network admin and have googled and tried multiple fixes, but nothing worked. You /g/uys are my last resort.

I have a peculiar problem that I cannot solve.
Starting 2 or 3 weeks ago, webpages have been loading very slowly on my main PC. Sometimes they fail to load alltogether, and I have to refresh the page a few times before it finally shows up.

My connection is just fine, I get 200 mbit (~24MB/s) down when downloading. It seems that once a website has actually loaded, I can browse all of the pages normally. It just seems to be the initial connection. The only exception here is youtube: loading a video would take 10 - 20 seconds, and then buffer normally at full HD.

My troubleshooting steps:
-Checked to see if the browser (Firefox) was causing it. Problem remains the same in IE.
-Checked 2 other computers at home, they are fine, websites load instantly.
-Tried turning off all antivirus and security software. Didn't help.
-Changed to alternative DNS servers (from OpenNIC to my ISP's DNS). No change whatsoever. (Also did 'ipconfig /flushdns').

So basically, it's not DNS related, not bandwidth related and not browser-related. What the heck is causing this? How do I fix it?

You don't. Chances are your browser is being monitored. Check for any unknown browser extensions.

Pic related are the only extensions installed in Firefox. The problem is the same in Internet Explorer though, so I don't think it's Firefox.

It is a DNS issue. Change your DNS server.

Get dnscrypt whilst you're at it.

Oh, and stop using ABP, get ublock origin, you kekold.

>>51511706
Already switched DNS servers though, it's in the OP.
>>
what about chrome
>>
>>51511706
What. I think uninstalling ABP and getting uBlock Origin actually fixed it. Running some tests now.

How could this be? The other computers I tested were also using ABP.

congratz, you were in the botnet

Never mind, it's still happening.

Don't want to install Chrome because it installs all that other bullshit like "google updater".

>>51511614
Are you trying to hit a proxy ?
Check your browser settings and Internet settings in the Control Panel.
Actually, your PC might be waiting for the proxy to cache up all the shit you're asking for, which can take time.
>>
>>51511963
No, I am not using a proxy.
No VPN either.

Just checked the Internet and Networking settings in control panel, everything looks normal. This OS install is from july and I haven't touched the settings.
Anything specific I should be looking at?
>>
Disable IPv6.
>>
>>51512089
Well, this was it. Thanks, anon.
I was using OpenNIC IPv6 DNS servers that were no longer operational.

It was actually windows' network troubleshooter that found it out. It said that the DNS server was not available, but I could definitely ping my IPv4 DNS servers. Then I remembered IPv6. Pretty stupid of me.

This explains why the other computers weren't experiencing the same issues, I had not touched IPv6 DNS there.
I assume the annoying 10 second delay when trying to load a website was probably the connection to the 2 non-existant IPv6 DNS servers timing out.

Thanks to everyone for trying to help. Have a good night, /g/urus!

I think it's the browser. Both Firefox and IE are quite slow compared to Chrome. So, it must be some browser/add-on combo.

Update adobe
