power cycle the router and modem, do an ipconfig /release followed by ipconfig /renew then try again. make sure you close any browser you have open and reload it once you have completed those steps.

how long does it delay before bringing up your homepage?

under 1 second everytime i open firefox, and once websites are actually in
the cache they load instantly without the looking up problem...
