    I've got a weird Safari issue.

    Most of the time, every website works fine, however, there is a particular website that has been causing issues. I can has cheesburger.

    Its my wife's favorite site. Anyways, after viewing about 3 or 4 pages of the site, Safari stops responding and refuses to load.

    I thought it may be a wifi issue that everyone talks about, but I'm not sure.

    This is what I've tried:
    - 2 separate iPads
    - 2 separate modem/routers by different brands
    - Turning brightness up and auto brightness off
    - DHCP and static IP addresses
    - renewing the lease
    - Changing the channel for the wireless
    - When I ping the IP address of the iPad it uses responds (with varying speeds from 32ms to 150ms)
    - When I check the router's attached devices, the iPads come and go. I think this is related to my issue.

    Any ideas...I can't think of anything else to try. Its gotta be a network issue, but I don't know what to do.

    Please help.

    Can you browse and access the site fully from, say, a Windows XP device with IE on it? Given that you've tried two different iPad's and various wi-fi hardware configurations, I'd be inclined to believe it's related to Safari...

    I had the same issue with this iPad forum, all I did to resolve is open the site in atomic browser (which loaded without issue) theme reopen safari, it seem to unstick the roadblock.

    Yes, the site works fine on a PC using firefox.

    I tried the atomic browser and had the same issue.

    It only seems to be an issue with one particular site. Icanhascheezburger
