I noticed in the small hours of this morning(and it's been the same all this morning/afternoon)that web pages were loading slower.
I then noticed that when I click on a link to open a page, in the status bar at the bottom of my browser it keeps displaying the message Resolving host "x"("x" being the url)and it'll pause before opening the page.
Now I know that that this is my pc accessing the Domain Name Server, but is this problem related to my pc, is the DNS slow for whatever reason or could it be related to my browser(Firefox 0.9).
I have a 750kb connection and I've never seen this message displayed before as the pages normally open realy fast.
What's annoying is I've NEVER had this problem before and I don't know why now I've got this slow down, it just, all of a sudden, started happening this morning. I've even ran a restore(didn't think I'd changed anything, but did it to see if it'd rectify the problem)but still getting this slow down loading pages.
Hello again Valvegrid. I couldn't agree more(r.e.this site slowing down). But great site= more hits= slow down. C'est la vie.
I think I've cured my problem.
Had a brainwave(I don't have them very often, have put the date in my diary ;0) ) and visited the Blueyonder site(my ISP)and found the DNS IP addresses and so have now gone into my network properties and changed the settings(instead of automaticaly obtaining the DNS server addresses, I've entered them manualy). This seems to have cured the problem(touch wood!!!).
