Go to start menu RUN and type in CMD
then type ping adserver.adtechus.com

Does it time out 100% loss?

I've asked other TELUS users to try this and if they can get a ping response their RFD loads fine.

The only way I found to be able to browse RFD smoothly is to install Adblock Plus addon in Firefox. Try it.

I use Telus, based in BC - does it on my laptop and my desktop PC in both Firefox and Word. Was fine 3-4 days ago, but the last two days, RFD has been loading HORRIBLY slow. Keep seeing "waiting on adserver.adtechus.com".

Any tips?

What a huge pain. Guess I'll try clearing cookies, etc and resetting router/modem.
Well.. I wiped my complete history/cookies/cache etc in both browsers, reset the modem, rebooted and RFD site pages are still taking 30-50 seconds to load. Unreal.

No idea what is going on here...
