  1. Hi, I have a Etec ADSL 4 port modem router. Sometimes, web pages will not load and I have to restart my computer for them to load. This doesnt happen all the time, but I was wondering if there was a router setting i could change in order to fix this.

    Why don't you reset the router instead? Just pull the mains adapter-cable from the router and reinsert it after a few seconds. The router will re-initialise and should be working fine again.
    Some routers get 'clogged up' after a while. Mine does the same (Billion BipAc 640AE).
    There are no settings to overcome that, as I found out.

    do you use a dynamic config or static
    could be the dhcp renew between the nic and router lock up
    set the router to static by first looking at the wan ip address from your isp
    should be easy to find then you need the dns usually 2 numbers sometimes 3
    check the (box) keep alive
    see if there is a new firmware upgrade may help ?running mozilla
    browser speed config
    in url type {about:config }
    make true or false boolean
    make numbers interger
