AOL instant messenger/aim problem.

Just received a new dell and in the process of setting up and moving files from my old computer. I am running windows 7 home 64bit. I downloaded the newest version of aim from the aol website, installed and log on. Everythings fine except when i send messages, it freezes for 30+ seconds at a time before the message goes through. Anyone else experiencing this problem or have any clue what the problem is? I tried to search but couldnt find anything. If i missed something i apologize.
