Safari / Comcast.net SLOW?

i don't know if this fits here but:

When I pull up Safari it will not load Comcast.net. The "google" websearch field also does not work. Yet when I use IE or Mozilla everything works fine (fast). Any ideas? Is it a browser issue or a connection issue. I can't see why Safari won't load Comcast.net yet IE will with no probs. Also why won't the "google" search field not work. Ideas?

My safari does all that very quickly. How long have you had your Mac? Maybe Safari's cache is overloaded? have you tried repairing disk permissions? Are your network settings accurately detetcing your connection speed?

everything is in check. If i use a different browser everything is fine. Its normal speed. But Safari can't seem to FULLY load anything right now. Also the google search field doesn't work. Type something in there and enter and the screen just sits. Nothing loads.

Maybe its comcast? but why would other browsers work?

This definitely appears to be a very uniue problem since I have no trouble with Comcast. I'd hate to sound like a Dell customer service agent, but have you tried restarting the computer?

Also, try opening the terminal and typing the following in:

sudo periodic daily weekly monthly

It will prompt you for your password, so when it does just type that and press return.

That would be the magical ability computers have to make little sense at times.

What kind of modem are you using? I'm geussing you have Comcast High Speed since you're loading comcast.net and it's probably one of the black Motorola cable modems. It says in the instructions of the modem that your speed will sometimes become slow, and you can "reset" and "clear up" the modem by unplugging it for about 30 seconds and then plugging it back in.

I had this same problem and it migrated to Firefox. I went into preferences for Firefox and preferences for Safari and opened the cookies list. Deleted all the cookies for Comcast. Restarted both browsers and both worked flawlessly. Hope this helps.
