thx for replies but if I turn off router for 2 mins and then try does this mean I have to do it every time I want to watch a vid on you tube ?

Holey molley I'm jealous. Close your browser then run ccleaner. If you don't know about the cleaner use a search engine on what it does and what you can keep. If you know all your log in detail for various sites and you don't give a hoot about your browser history then run in default mode. Otherwise use the browser's options to delete cashe and temporary files. Then close the browser, wait a second or two and re-open.

ball_footy , you don't need to reboot the router.

You don't say who your ISP (internet service Provider) is and what speed internet connection you have.

Are you with Virginmedia by any chance, if so this is a known problem for anyone with VM, from their lowest 30mb connection right up to their 120mb connection.

Been going on for over a year and they aren't any closer to fixing the issue.
