Hi again jerryf....so where are we on figuring out why my comp is taking its' sweet time getting online? Would it be possible for me to just change my DNS numbers to what are on my daughter's comp? Would that make mine load up faster? It took me close to 10 minutes just to get my first online page up this morning.... Thanks :tazz:

Hi, I lost track of you! Sorry....too many people, too many computer problems.

Actually, what I want you to do is not the numbers and then on your machine DISABLE DNS.

The really odd thing about this is that your daughters computer is reading the gatway, router as the DNS server....most simply forward the DNS info to the machine. I want to see if it will do the same for yours.

So, Go to the properties section of the Internet Connection, and note the numbers, then click DISABLE DNS, then reboot...see if you can get on again....if not, reinsert numbers and come back

Really (mistyped one)?

ping 216.98.167.1

then

ping 216.98.167.2

what is the prompt....I actually think I know what's going on...I just did a trace to these two addresses and 216.98.167.1 responded it was an email server. I should have done this before, but instead I just tried to see if it was there, I didn't look for type

I think Mountain View (that is your ISP, right) changed their DNS servers....

Because your computer checks DNS in order, it will keep trying the first one several times until it gives up, then go to the second one.

So, I want you to go back to the DNS CONFIG tab, and remove the first entry....

then reboot and see if that makes a difference

I know..see above...I just want to see if you can telnet into the router or use your browser to discern what the REAL DNS servers are

Yes, Mountain View is right. Got one question before I do this....do I need to check the box that tells my comp to automatically detect settings? Or, is this strictly for a cable modem connection?

Changed my mind, found a manual for your router (actually similar router)

In DNS do as you suggested, add 192.168.1.1 instead of what you had there. This router translates DNS info just like IP info.

Don't check that box yet
