Time-out settings

Sometimes when I visit a web site the page loads so slowly that it "times-out" and nothing is displayed except for the error message. Even with my cable modem and even disconnecting and reconnecting to establish a new path to the site does not work where other sites load normally.
Granted, issues such as heavy user traffic and such are often to blame.
Still, my question is if I can adjust the "time-out" settings to allow for more time for a web site to load, or is it an ISP/end-server function that cannot be adjusted?

Thanks

Steven, in your link example it gave an example data value of 32. Is that in seconds or some other time?

OK, so if I want to increase the time-out setting to 1-minute, I would need to set the value as 60,000: If I have that right?? If so, does the value entry allow such a large number and if so, should it be without the comma(60000)?

Thanks
