Many web pages not load correctly the first time

Lately my browser starts having difficulty loading web pages at the first few attempts. It will first show a blank screen with error message saying the page cannot load or unable to find the address. Then if I refresh the page, it would start the load the texts, but not the images or page's correct layout (there would just be the texts without the correct font/size/color displaying on top of each other). Especially in the case of a web site with lots of content, I may need to keep refreshing the browser for several times until it can finally get the page loaded correctly.

I mainly use Google Chrome but have got the same problem with Firefox & IE too.

This is getting very annoying and I am not sure if it might have something to do with my hispeed connection although I would not know where exactly to look or what to do. I've been using the internet connection from the same ISP for many years now and have not made any new changes or adjustments with the LAN cable & modem at all. I don't recall ever having this problem up until just a few months ago (at least not this much).

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.


Here's also the Line Quality Tests FAQ to help you understand the results. This will answer some questions about the line quality display.
