    If your having problems with slow browsing of the internet or cannot retreive your E-mail and are on NTL Broadband then do the following to resume normal surfing.

    Start > Settings > Control panel > Internet options > Connections > Lan settings > Un-tick automatically detect settings > Tick use a proxy server > Advanced > In the HTTP box type inktomi1-man.server.ntl.com > in the port box type 8080 > Tick use same proxy for all protocols > click OK > Tick Bypass proxy server for locall addresses > Click OK >click OK.

    You should now be back to desktop with your internet back to normall.

    For a list of NTL proxy servers (maybe a close one to you ) read this page Proxy list
