Default WTF!!!

Ok, is it my computer, my router, or BC? Every day when I log in here and open the first topic (I always open topics in new windows -don't know why), but when I do it'* like it takes forever to open the window (no problem like this on other sites/forums), and after it opens if I maximize the New Post'* window it refreshes and I seem to have to go through each section of the forum to review the new post'*.
I've reset my LinkSys router countless times, and just yesterday ran Ad-Aware, Spy-Bot, and the Sisco anti-virus programs and got my PC running as fast as my Cable internet would allow.
What'* up?

There was one day this week that the site was beyond slow. It took about 5 minutes to load anything, I was looking at my logs, and it seemed BC'* server was just sending one packet every 10 seconds to keep the connection alive between us. Been fine since. No login troubles whatsoever.

about a month ago I had horrible problems with this site too. It took forever to load anything and it was only this site too. I have a linksys router and updated the firmware and it seems to be fine now. Try that.
