hi as my laptop is faulty at the moment which i would normally use for internet access, basically to continue my it work test simulation etc as a host or accessing, yahoo, google and experts for example.

i just wanted to know as ive currently been forced to use my 'wsus member server' joined to a domain to continue my work.  not ideal i know!

my internet connection is really really disgusting sluggish and keep receiving intermitant script errors which im assuming is causing my problem.

question 1.  is there something i should correct or the fact that im logged onto my wsus member server rather than a host xp/win 7 machine that i can do to speed up my internet connection ?

First prize would be to log on to another server, I would be reluctant to change anything on this if it is working 100%, but as you have said you can't you can try this.

Install Mozilla and use that as your browser, This should let you know if the script errors you are receiving are IE or WSUS related. What errors have you received?
Check you network connection to ISA box maybe there is something hardware related that you have picked up before?

ok thanks! i have not installed 'mozilla' but my server appears to be ok at the moment. i did however disable the 'firewall' feature on my netgear router box connected to the internet as im currently using my isa 2006.  so hopefully this maybe one thing that maybe allowing my internet experience to be better.
