Within the last week my browser (Firefox, and IE)
are getting delayed time out messages on opening
saome sites. AOL especially.
I have opened the OPTIONS and cannot find any
timing to be able to extend .

Where do I adjust it?

I have hp paviiion 2.3 G router and telco broadband
Win XP , both wireless and LAN enabled.

I have noticed this problems on two machines connected
to my router.

Thanks

Hiya Icantlogin.

Not sure about the `timed out` setting but a common factor is the router. Do you turn the router off when you shut the computer down or is it left on permenantly? I find that rebooting it often helps with slow-loading web pages.

Ye the router is left on all the time.
When I have a problem I always
unplug and reboot.
I suspect the router because it is
also giving me intermittent wireless
signals.

I will be buying a new router soon.

Hiya Icantlogin.

Sounds like a wise move and I`d personally recommend either Netgear or Belkin but that`s just my preferenece.

I gave the Linksys router a time out, and unplugged
it for a few minutes.
Now everything is working fine again.
I am not sure if the router by itself is
bad or the communication with the
network (telephone co) is the cause but
I will replace it as a first step.

Hiya Icantlogin.

Glad you hear it`s working now which tells you it might not be the router that`s at fault.
