back to pick your collective brains again - i've been having a problem where my browser at first becomes sluggish, then hit and miss, then non responsive completely. I use Chrome mainly, but the problem appears to be with IE too.
When i open a new tab, the status at the bottom says " sending request " but the webpage will never open and the error is Error 118 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT
This doesn't happen when i fist boot up my laptop, but by degrees. It will rectify itself if i either reboot, or reset my wireless router, but will happen again after a short space of time.
The odd thing is that traffic seems to be flowing properly - if i have anything going on outside the browser like MSN or yahoo messenger, or an online poker game - they all seem to be unaffected which makes it all the more frustrating.
I've no doubt its a setting that can be changed somewhere, but i'm at a loss as to what it might be.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as always.
If there really was a god, then why is my ass the perfect height for kicking ???
