    This might help u.. Try using Google public DNS

    DNS : 8.8.8.8
    Alternate DNS : 8.8.4.4

    Google if you don't know how to use dns..

    Hi Hedgehog,

    Follow some of these tips along with Bluebird's suggestion,
    - Open Run and enter ping facebook.com
    - Clear cache and cookies of the browser

    Hope that helps ;)

    You may have to clear you Tem

    Go start then type %TEMP%
    (if you are using win7)

    [01] : Don't use Internet Explorer; Use Chrome / Firefox.
    [02] : Use an "Adblocker" Extension.
    [03] : Use "Pinger" Software when connected with your Broadband (Experimental : Give a try to any Free VPN, Check if surfing problem still persists).
    [04] : Use "Google Public DNS servers" mentioned by BlueBird in the first comment.
    [05] : Clear Cache, Cookies and History of your Browser and Restart the Browser.
    [06] : Check your addons in the Browser, If you find any suspicious addons (they might be malwares) then delete them. Also if you have installed any script based addon like tampermonkey etc..., then suspend them temporarily just to check that its not messing with your Facebook experience.
