no offense taken....it comes from having a wife and kids using it more than I do. No real speed issues to speak of though...but I will be trimming the fat a bit once I get this issue resolved.

You have mdnsresponder.exe in the task manager...correct?
Edit - just saw your response - this is going to be the issue I bet. We'll help you remove it the correct way.
I'll check this once I get home in about an hour...but assuming this is the issue...should I be checking in services? how would I get rid of it, assuming this is present?

Thanks again for being so much help!

mdnsresponder.exe is part of the Bonjour service installed by Apple iTunes and some Adobe products - Apple describes the service as a "zero configuration networking process..." It has been known to cause a lot of networking headaches for 7 users.

Removing it is pretty simple - see this thread for instructions: No Internet Access and Bonjour service

1000 thanks!

Hola...

I'm happy to report it was Bonjour causing the headache. Although I tried following the instructions, I was unable to unregister the dll, says it's being used by Java...but I got rid of the mdsnreponder.exe, disabled the service, and voila.

I'm quite thankful right now for people who are not only friendly, but a buttload smarter than I am.

Thanks all for your assistance!

Jim

You're welcome. I can't in good conscience not tell you that you really should uninstall that instead of just disabling.

Very glad it's working right now for ya and you've found the cause.
