wifi suddenly wont load random websites

This may not even be a motorola -specific problem, but suddenly some pages in chrome, various news agencies, (usatoday.com, washingtonpost.com, the atlantic.com, etc) and other pages will not load.
I tried a couple of tricks suggested in chrome itself, like disabling qwic protocol, but the problem just came back.
Along the way attempts to try another browser, were thwarted due to getting the message "no internet connection" on google play store, even though facebook, email, and several other sites are loading just fine.
Also my phone is giving me "poor signal" messages in some apps like lookout, and others.
None of the problems is happening to the other smartphones in my mouse, so I am tempted to think this is a Motorola-specific, or at least "my phone specific" problem.
NOTE: all these same sites load perfectly when I turn wifi off on my moto x pure, and go with the cellular signal.

Any ideas?
