Okay everyone, I'm sure most of you have had a look at my previous question ("MSN Messenger Error."), which is here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Q_21165256.html
Just to go over a few relevant details:
-I'm on a LAN, we share the connection, and I'm NOT the ICS host. (Ethernet: 10/100mbps)
-At the MOMENT, we've turned off all firewalls (except the XP firewall, which is on the ICS Host machine).
-3 clients on the LAN, connected by a hub. Currently though, only two clients are connected and using the LAN (one of which is mine).
-The internet connection: 56K dial-up (ISP: NTL). (broadband isn't offered in our area! :( ).
-The ICS host can use the internet fine, with NO problems at all. (Unlike myself).
-All machines are WinXP home ed. My machine previously had SP2 installed, but I found that it was causing FAR too many problems, so I uninstalled it, via 'Add/Remove Programs'... Perhaps this is related?
-I also USED to have Mozilla installed. Which I blamed for some of these problems, and thus uninstalled it also. Which hasn't seemed to have made any difference at all. :(
Okay, onto problem 2:
My browser is Internet Explorer 6.
When I type in a domain and hit [enter] / click "Go", it will normally wait for at least 10 seconds, and then it will FINALLY, GRADUALLY load the page.
However, on many occasions, it doesn't load a page at all! It says that it cannot find the Server! :o\
google.com normally loads pretty quickly, almost everytime, but just about every other site waits approx 10 secs, THEN gradually loads/or not.
This has been going on for about 1 week so far.
Any ideas anyone?! Because I'm getting beyond frustrated!! lol :'(
