Could be server/system maintenance(?) I've had no issue with any other "web" functions except CR. All checks I've run result in 'intermittent connection' with CR's sever

The issue may be with BGP routing tables rapidly becoming too full for older equipment like Cisco Catalyst 6500/7600 that are hitting the 512K table limit. This issue could be cropping up anywhere in the path too.

Definitely an interesting read, thanks.

I'd been aware of the 512 breakdown but wasn't aware how far spread. Nor that the impact was now being felt.

On a plus side, I've had no issues with CR streaming since 11pm EDT! Hopefully, fingers crossed, part of the down time yesterday was maintenance (?) Far fetched, but maybe... Lol

Here's another read on it. http://www.renesys.com/2014/08/internet-512k-global-routes/

There's not much you can do to quantify how hard this is going to hit and how wide spread it is. Things will probably be pretty easy to fix, though sometimes at the expense of IPv6. I don't know of any major DDoS attacks and, while it could be the issue, I don't see any reason to suspect an attack. Unplanned maintenance... always a possibility. Traceroutes may be useful if anyone else is having an issue.

CR has been slow for me since they uploaded all those awesome episodes of Cardcaptor Sakura (http://www.crunchyroll.com/cardcaptor-sakura) yesterday. I'm sure it's not related to that, but that's when the CR site and streams began slowing for me.

Not related to thread (not sure if that's taboo, new here) but figured you'd like this one also

I've noticed that starting from Friday night to Sunday afternoon it's impossible to get Crunchyroll to be stable. I don't know if something has changed in the background or they are carrying more than they can handle.. but it's incredibly frustrating since the weekend is usually when we get a chance to watch things together here at home. Now we have to avoid same day simulcasts we pay for with premium because we can't get the video on a computer to stop freezing during "prime" weekends. Of note, this has only happened with this frequency in the past 6 months.

It seems like the last several days I've been having issues with CR. I'm either getting errors or the website loads very slowly. It is not my connection or computer in anyway as it only happens with CR. As I wait for CR I just check other webpages or give up.
