Hi all,
I have 2 laptops connected to the same router but my Ispiron 600m is always faster in opening up pages on the web but my supposidly better laptop Ispiron 6400 duo core with 512mb ram sometimes can take upto 20-30 sec longer to open up pages, I have updated drives, no difference, I have let windows managed my wifi and still makes no difference. Is there anything else I could do to speed the browser? Both systems use XP OS sp2. I have run a spyware test, rootkit test and a virus test, nothing! Any ideas would be greatfull.

Hi Halmer, Thanks for the info, I have tried Firefox, its help some what but it still bothers me as to why a more superior laptop loads web pages slower when they both have the same OS and same IE7. Thanks.
