Slow connection using Google, Facebook, and certain sites after recent upgrade
Hello, I'm brand new UVerse GigaPower user.
The transition to this new service hasn't gone as smoothly as I hoped but I want to try to figure out this most annoying issue for now.
First of all, I'm using all of the default settings on the device provided by AT&T. The Motorola NVG589. On speedtest I'm getting the advertised speeds of 300/300 with a 15ms ping.
So the problem is, when I do a google search from chrome, it hangs there until it eventually times out and then I have to reload the page, after which the search results appear. Another example is in Gmail, sometimes the inital page is very slow to load, but it hangs forever when trying to open individual emails. Again, multiple page refreshes seem to fix this.
Again, everything is default. I'm tempted to try to disable WIFI on the NVG589 and use my own router but hoping I can resolve it without going through that.
PS. I'd like to add that youtube(google) is also unusable.
