Hi Folks,

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 ???

Have you tried renewing/releasing your IP address under command prompt? You could also reset the router/modem by a paper clip. Other things you might try is reinstalling the network driver or with an updated version would be better. Clearing your cache and make sure you have the latest windows updates installed.
