I downloaded firefox, and still have connection issues. I guess it may be the router. I'll have to replace that some day. Thanks for all the help! Larry

Hello pokey23! I was experiencing a similar issue not long ago. Sometimes my Internet would work and sometimes it wouldn't. It always seemed like it was hanging up during domain name resolution. I tried flushing the cache and resetting the winsock (why does Windows need socks? ROFL). I changed my DNS provider to OpenDNS. NOTHING WORKED!!! I was getting so frustrated until one day I was talking about it with one of my buddies at work and he said that the router I was using was known to cause problems. I hand't thought about it but the router I was using was rented from my ISP (couldn't afford one at the time). This router was actually a modem/router (modem and router built together). Well apparently this caused a lot more interference than I thought it would. When you have a device like a router with it's antennae wrapped around another device that passes off thousands of bytes of data every minute then you are bound to have problems. Are you using a modem/router? If so, I'm willing to bet that the problem lies within your hardware.

Hello and thanks for responding to my problem. I am using a seperate router from my modem, however the router is sitting on top of the modem. would that act the same way? so far today I have been connected for about an hour and a half without any problems (knock wood) I'm lost with this stupid thing!!!! :angry:
