But sometimes I click on a Thread title and after waiting about 17 seconds I get - in the status bar at the bottom - "connecting to 220.127.116.11" then after about another 10 or so seconds all I get is a blank white page?
I hit the "back" button and try again but the same thing happens. I give it a miss for about half an hour (and get on with something else).
When I try again after this time lapse it works for a while and then I get the same thing again.
I am on Win XP SP2. IE 6. NTL (Virgin Media) Broadband.
