Some websites will not load or take literally 5 minutes to load from the network

Until late last week, there had been no problems. But lately, there are several websites that I frequent that will no longer load or take forever, and never completely load. Newegg.com is one. When I go to the site, the blue title bar on the browser shows "Newegg.com - Computer Parts, Laptops, Electronics, and More!" but the site never loads. The status at the bottom stays at "Connecting to images10.newegg.com". I don't know if this is relevant, but this is an Akami server. I have tried to connect from our network on both XP Pro SP3, and Win7 SP1 computers. However, if I connect the computer to an access point on one of the public IPs everything works great. Other sites that I know have problems are tomshardware.com and howstuffworks.com. Any help would be great, I am at a loss.

Thanks

Do you have some kind of proxy/firewall in the way?

I have a Juniper RSX240h that has not been touched in at least 6 months.

Definitely points to changes in the firewall... or a wonky DNS.

Checking DNS, and everything seems to be okay. All sites having problems have content being pushed by akami.net. I have a ticket with Juniper to see what's going on.

Thanks.

I setup a ticket with Juniper. In the mean time I scheduled a restart on the firewall. The restart fixed the issue. There must have been some corruption in the config. Have closed the ticket with Juniper.

Thanks!

Pointed me to where the problem may be. A restart of the firewall did the trick.
