Hi Experts:

I am using Windows 2000 with IE 5.5 and whenever I type in a web address in the address bar and hit enter, there is a delay of about 20 seconds before IE actually goes out and tries to search for the page that I requested. Does anyone know why there is so much of a delay? and if so how do I go abouts resolving this issue. Thanks guys for your quick replies.

Open Internet Explorer> Internet Options> Connections.

Click on LAN settings.

Make sure that automatically detect settings is UNchecked.

This causes IE to spend time looking for an autoconfiguration server.

I hope this helps.
