Lately I've been having trouble with my computer making any connections. Opening internet (in firefox) links often takes many tries, as the majority of the time the page simply does not attempt to load (if I force it to open a new tab/window it comes up as 'untitled'). Trying with internet explorer yields the same results. Once connections are made, it seems to work fine (downloads etc. work once they get started, which is hit and miss) but the problem has reached a point where it took me fifteen minutes to get the registration page for this forum to load correctly (with the anti-spam key) so that I could post this message. The problem even pops up when I try to connect to my router. Any ideas?
