Re: Certain websites don't load or hang up: I recently changed from FIOS router to Linksys EA7300

I haven't used a Verizon router - ever really. That's over a decade, now. One suggestion I have is to use alternate DNS servers if you aren't already. See: Opt Out of DNS Assistance and Free and Public DNS Servers. I use:

NAMESERVER_1="71.252.0.14"          # ISP's Nameserver primary
NAMESERVER_2="68.237.161.14"        # ISP's Nameserver primary
NAMESERVER_3="8.8.8.8"              # Google's Open DNS server

See if that helps.

[Be nice! We are mostly fellow Verizon customers.
My setup: 75/75 Mbps; Linux router (2x 1Gbps ports) + iptables; Linksys WRT1900ACS in Bridge Mode]
