Ping is fast but connect to a website is still slow


For example, if I use the command ping www.chevron.com, it will returns like:

Reply from 60.254.173.10: bytes=32 time=10ms TTL=52
Reply from 60.254.173.10: bytes=32 time=9ms TTL=52
Reply from 60.254.173.10: bytes=32 time=7ms TTL=52
Reply from 60.254.173.10: bytes=32 time=9ms TTL=52

However when I type in the browser www.chevron.com, it's just keep downloadning and need to wait a long time (10 min.) to view the full page.

I disabled the norton internet security software, and changed the ISP, all the same problem. So I'm suspecting maybe some setting of my laptop caused the slow internet connection.

Can anybody give me some suggestions?

hhheng - Welcome to the Board

Your link to Chevron opens in a few seconds for me. I notice that an applet loads as witnessed by the rotating icon in the window centre - this is Adobe Flash Player 9.

I would check that you have this on the laptop and that it is functional.

Exactly what happens when you click on the Adobe link or type the address into the Address bar?

I'm using Firefox. Does I need the flash player also?

I clicked on the link to Abobe Flash, and it opened, within a couple of seconds. Same clicking on the chevron.com link. I am using Seamonkey2.0a1pre, a night related to Seamonkey as well as Firefox. Firefox 2.0.0.9 takes nearly ten seconds to load the Chevron page (I have a timer for the website). That time is not unusual for complex pages like Chevron.
Was Cache emptied in Firefox?
I have medium speed cable, and Flash 9.0.0.47.
I would like to know what you expect. I, never, ping a site. Heck, I would not know how to.

Please move my thread back, I'm not using Firefox only. I use IE and Firefox together.

I installed the adobe flash for IE and Firefox together. But still same problem.

The problem happens for IE and Firefox together, and it's not only for www.chevron.com. Problem occurs while visiting sites like www.directorycritic.com, www.kasamba.com, and many other websites also, even when trying to vew a forum inside this website, the loading status circle keeps running without stop.

Problems the same for ADSL and wireless connection.

I suggest you clear out your Temporary Internet files in IE (and the equivalent in Firefox)

I tried that, and help nothing. Have no idea what's wrong, maybe I need to reinstall the system of my computer.

Let's try something else ......

Start > Run > type in cmd > OK to get a Command window

At the flashing cursor type cd\ Enter to change to the C:\ root

At the C prompt type ipconfig /flushdns Enter.

Then exit the command window.

Try connecting again to one of the troublesome websites.

Tried above, still the same problem.

The symptoms are:
  1. The page is blank, and the loading circle keeps running, but never shows anything;
  2. The page was around 90% downloaded, however the loading circule keeps running for long time;
  3. The page was almost fully showed, but suddenly will turned to "internet exporer can't display the url".
