Re: Page Not Found Problem
Sites that you already visit are cached on the Hard Drive so there is No
need for extended Internet traffic to brink them back.
New sites depends on the Internet connection and if they load so slow it
means that the Router or (some thing else) impedes the connection.
Cable/DSL do no need drivers. Either the Router is Not configured correctly
or it is a "lame" unit.
Did you try to connect the computer directly to the modem to find out
whether it is your new installation or the Router?
