Why does website always load on the second try?

Hi All,

We have an odd problem.  When opening Carbonite.com on one particular computer, the first time browswing to the site it always says the page cannot be displayed (standard internet explorer message).  After that, it loads on the second try.  Cannot seem to find a cause.  The same issue is keeping the Carbonite application from working correctly.

Brand new machine, standard Norton 2010 AV (which never interferes with Carbonite), no other software that should be blocking.  Any ideas?

Thanks

Try the web page with other browsers.
Did you clear internet explorer cache?
When it fails to load, what is it pointing to in the bar where you enter carbonite.com
Do you enter http://www.caronite.com or just part of that.

Is the default gateway for this computer correct?

I get this error in Firefox: "server does not support RFC 5746, see CVE-2009-3555".  It is about TLS Renegotiation Extension.

Looks like an ISP issue. They reset the modem and that seems to have fixed it. Thanks!

Oh and just to answer the above question, resetting all browser settings didn't help. Thx though!
