Let's see.. I get random DNS, Key Port, and general CANNOT FIND SERVER at random times.

For example, i get onto google, and i search for somthing and i get CANNOT FIND SERVER.
Or, i click internet explorer, and it launches me directly into CANNOT FIND SERVER.
Or i decide to try and get firefox, and i click the download link and i get sent to CANNOT FIND SERVER.

I've run all sorts of spyware and antivirus things, they're all done, so it's not that.

I've unplugged everything many times, it just causes an increase of internet speed for a short while.

Then it goes back to the previous 2 KB/S...

I don't know how else to explain this strate erratic behaviour...

I have a Router, but it's been fine up til now... I'm planning to look for new drivers as we speak, but please, if you can, help! ^_^


P.S. Funniest thing is, this site seems to work fine and fast... =/
