'Connecting to...' lasts for a long time
Hi, when I try to connect to any webpage, the 'connecting to...' in the bottom left lasts for at least 2 minutes, after that everything loads quickly. Evern connecting to my router website on 192.168.1.1 is extremely slow.
I have another partition on my computer (linux) that works fine.. no problems with connecting slow.
I've narrowed it down to a setting within Windows that must be jacked. What I've tried so far is
-Tried both with and without the router. Shouldn't be the router because under linux it connects fine.
-upgrade LAN card drivers, and roll them back, tried everything, problems still happens
-use my wifi adapter instead of lan card, upgrade the drivers, roll them back, tried everything, problem still happens
-check for virus and malware, etc etc.
-ETA: Problem happens with every browser I've tried. IE, Firefox, Chrome
I'm using Windows 7 Professional x64 set to Workgroup. And my router is Linksys WRT54Gxv2, set as DHCP server enabled
Is there any way to reset all of the networking setting back to default? I think this is what I might have to do. I'm on the verge of reinstalling windows WRT54GX-v2WRT54GWRT54GX-v2X-v2

How can you tell the difference between infected websites and un-infected ones?? You really should download and install a copy of Microsoft Security Essentials and leave it installed and allow automatic updates on it. Also download, install and keep installed, a copy of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Once installed allow it to get the latest updates and do a full scan with both on your system..All discs and let us know the results so that we can advise further.
Both of these programs are free and are used by the majority of members of the forum.
