    I'm having a problem with LS loading. It either takes a long time, or I have to reload the page. I'm using IE9. I can switch over to Google Chrome and it seems to work a little better. No other webpage has any difficulty loading. We have a cable connection and 2 desktops with a router.
    Is there any way to "ping" or check my system to see if the problem is within? And if there is, how do I evaluate the data? What should it be?
    Any assistance is greatly appreciated. It's becoming increasingly difficult and frustrating to get my daily fix!!!

    yes, you should be able to check (or ping) your system to see if it is a problem with IE on your end

    I am using IE9 and also checked on Firefox and am not having the same issues that you are referring to

    Ok, I googled "how to ping" etc. Followed the instructions and this is what I came up with. Now, can someone help me decipher the data?

    i've used ie9 and firefox. it does happen from time to time. a page will just keep loading and be blank so i just hit the back button and reload and it loads fine.

    Yeah, I don't get it. It works better with Chrome. I have a page from before that's STILL loading!!

    Does that ping information look right? Does it appear to be anything wrong with it?

    Lefet, I am not sure Google chrome will be a long term answer for you as I am using chrome and have for awhile as it generally seems to be quicker however on LS in particular I have been having issues with speed lately too.

    That's what I'm figuring, too many people with not a lot to do!

    Yeah, I use to use Chrome a lot more but then I heard some bad things about it so I stopped. Just use it now for LS.

    Thanks gents for letting me know it's not just me.
