BT Broadband Logon problem


NTFS Stoner
whenever i connect to my broadband connection i have to wait up to 2 mins before the 1st page will open. says page found and waiting, then all of a sudden it bursts into life and all is fine. i was wondering if there is anything i need to do on the dial up connection to stop this nothingness once i connect.

i got the latest drivers and my system is 100% up to date.


I would assume you are using XP and therefor you are not using any additional software to connect to the internet, so this will probably be a pointless post....

When I was running Win2K I had to use Enternet 3000 to connect my DSL. Connecting was not an issue, but when I would open IE/Opera I would have to wait 1 - 2 minutes while it was detecting the proxy settings and then once the page finally came up all was good. I never looked for a way to stop it b/c I figured it was probably necessary and besides that I only disconnect to reboot, so I only had to deal with it detecting those proxy settings once in awhile.

I'm just wondering if it is two minutes you're waiting? I only say coz my ADSL connection (freeserve / Alcatel) does the same but it probably isn't really 2 mins!!

If like me you have the ADSL set to come on at start up I can only assume that your PC is busy churning through all the other startup stuff hence the delay....

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
