Windows 7: Inordinate time connecting to the internet

Inordinate time to connect to internet

Sorry I've been away on holiday. Now the latest! I have done a complete recovery of Windows 7 and restored the Linksys WRT20N router to its original specs. And still it takes forever to connect to Yahoo, my hoe web page. 13 minutes just now. I think the problem might be in the router as the computer functions "internally" like greased lightning. The router was one refurbished by Linksys.

Can you temporarily change your homepage to google and then test connection speed. Also possibly try a different browser as your issue could be plugin related.

Lastly if you can try to connect to another network and test connectivity speed. Possibly a friend or relatives Internet?

Please post back your results and we will do our best
