My System Specs

Default

Hmm I had a similar issue twice (also on Rogers) where all web pages were taking a long time to load. The first time, I solved it by changing the Ethernet cables at the back of my router and modem. The second time, which just happened about a week ago, I fixed by unplugging (the power for) BOTH the modem and router for about 10 seconds, then plugging them both back in. Essentially when this happens the first thing I do is try to reset everything I can about the connection.

If that doesn't work, you can also try changing your DNS servers on the router - I use OpenDNS because I've had laggy / spotty web page lookups with whatever DNS Rogers gives me.

Back in the Windows XP days I'd also do a hosts file reset to solve issues like this, ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hosts_(file) ) but I haven't done that in years.
