    Bad Gateway generally means some problem in the Server to server when a bad request is sent.
    There is nothing that a common user can do,
    But some measures which can Help.

    Clear the browser cache.
    Clear the Cookies,
    Delete history,
    Disable Proxy Server,
    Disable Add-Ons, Tool bars,
    Use different Browser,
    Use updated Browser.
    Log out and restart windows then start browsing afresh.

    These steps might Help to solve gateway issues.
