I believe I have solved the issue.
I was narrowing down an issue with the 17 PCs, Laptops and smartphones that I have connected to the router, Lan and Wireless.
All my Windows 10 machines would not load pages in IE fast or load at all while my Windows 7 machines are fine.
Smartphones always lost internet while still being connected to the router.
I ran into something like this years ago when IPv6 started showing up in modems and Routers.
Well, I turned off the IPv6 in the Router forcing it only to use IPv4.
And what do you know, all is fixed and fast. Smartphones are smartphones again!!!
I even went a step further and unchecked IPv6 in the NIC driver on the Windows 10 machines.
My family LOVES me again no more lag loading Facebook. LOL
You would think by now IPv6 should be fully implemented by now but I guess not.

The router will try to resolve the connection issue between IPv4 and IPv6 but it seems it's not perfect.
Once Linksys recognizes this, hopefully they will have a firmware fix. But I'm not holding my breathe.

So you're suggesting that the website of concern might not be set to handle IPv6, and this router sometimes fails to rollover to IPv4 automatically when needed?
