I've recently got Vodafone Connect.
I was previously with Sky and had no issues with websites not loading or any sort of lag.
I moved to Voda and have noticed that some sites stop loading.
For example, I can access Reddit.com fine, but some links (to other parts of Reddit) will just sit waiting to load as if the router cant resolve the connection.
It's also happened with eBay and a variety of other 'legitimate' websites. I can connect to eBay fine, but when clicking on a link to a product that's for sale, it acts like the connection drops
I played around with the content settings, as I thought it might be blocked for content reasons, but even switchign that off makes no difference.
I know the links are valid, as I can reach them with my iphone on 4g.
Mac OS 10.12.3
iPhone 6 on 4G
I've also done the usual clear cache, restart, updated to latest versions, inc the Router Firmware.

"When your broadband is installed, we'll optimise your connection to ensure you get the best possible speed. However, doing this can sometimes cause some short drops in service or unexpectedly slow speeds for the first 10 days and in extreme cases up to 30 days. Please don’t turn off or reset your router during this time."
Sometimes I find changing wireless channel and splitting the frequencies in the router to 2.4ghz and 5ghz and then choosing the best for me helps.
Possibly use Ookla Speedtest to see what speeds and ping your getting.

No issues with speeds really, just that the site will stop loading.
I'm getting 35-36meg
It's more like theres an issue with dns resolution but ive already reached the site and am trying te navigate within it

So the latest update is the Vodafone website - specifically my Vodafone doesnt appear to work 100% with Safari on MacOS??!
Blank screen in Safari but full content in Chrome. What on earth?! Does anyone actually do any testing these days...

Try changing your DNS in the Router (Expert mode I think?) to the Google Public DNS -
and restart the VF Connect Router and the client.

I've had this behaviour since I got the router as well. It's very annoying and happens on every single device I have so it's not a cache issue.
You get used to it after a while. It's just part of the substandard experience from this router.
