How to proceed with tech support

i have an intermittent problem, several times per day. Symptoms:

cannot reach miscellaneous sites (Amazon, Home Depot, etc.) but. CAN reach news sites

when this occurs, Speedsmart shows pings at ~100ms, but dl speed is ok at ~200mbs

spectrum has replaced modem once and router twice, to no effect.

problem typically resolves itself after a few minutes

have tried changing dns server, rebooting modem rebooting iPad/iPhone no joy

suspect it is a Spectrum problem, where cached sites are fine, non-cached ones are not

any suggestions?

    Welcome to our community! I'm sorry to hear about your internet issues. Does this happen only on the iOS devices or does it seem to happen on any device that has a browser? If all of the devices are Apple devices, that's okay, I just want to kind of get an idea of the set up in the house to know where to start.

    Thanks for the response!

    We only have iOS devices. None of this happened until we upgraded to the 200mbp package, which required a new modem & router. We got as far as tier 2 tech support, but they were focused on the hw, and could not explain why I could connect to some sites but not others. Then they stopped responding.

    Which browser are you using and are you able to duplicate the issue on a different browser?

    I have a very similar issue with our apple devices. Neither of our iphones (iphone 11 and 12) will stay connected to the router (wifi 6). Our TV, computers (non-apple), and other devices never have connectivity or speed issues. But we have to turn our iphone wifi off and on all day to use wifi but we are tearing through cellular data since we have to continually turn off wifi. We have no other wifi connectivity issues outside of our home/spectrum router. Our issues are across all sites (safari/chome) and apps (facebook, pandora, amazon, ect).

    Have you checked your content privacy settings?

    Settings>ScreenTime>Content&Privacy Restrictions>Content restrictions>Websites (or web content)...unlimited access is ON

    Also, can you duplicate the issue on a non Apple device?
