Hey guys I've had this annoying problem for the last two days, the connection times out when connecting to quite a few websites including usually reliable sites such as google, so far the only website I've have consistant good access to is facepunch, this has also effected applications like Steam.
I have so far ruled out it being a DNS or ISP problem, the IP address is resolved fine but for some unknown reason the connection times out, at times I've also been unable to ping the websites as well and other times ping but still not be able to connect.
I've narrowed it down to being a Windows 8 issue as everything work perfectly fine on my Linux install and my laptop, virus and malware scans have turned up clean and I've double and triple checked my network configuration.
So if anyone has any ideas I'd be quite grateful, I'm almost at the point of throwing Windows 8 in the trash.
Fuck it I'm not at all impressed by Windows 8.
Back to 7 for me it seems.
