whenever i open IE6 and try to go to a website for the first time it won't go. it's as if it doesn't exist.

however, when i go to my isp homepage (optus@home = www) it will load, and it fixes the problem with the other sites.

i'm assuming it's an IE6 problem but i can't find where to fix it (no i can't reinstall or repair it)

it could be a o@h prob but it's unlikely.

anyone else had the same prob? can anyone help?

:rolleyes:

I had this problem, but it was my ISP's DNS server which was causing it.

You can install this tweak : http://www.xp-erience.org/article.php?sid=1255

Reboot.

I also I run a custom host file - Which basically makes your PC its on DNS server. Just add a few of your favourite sites in your hosts file.

The hosts file is in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

Back it up first :)


Just add the sites like i have below. I hope that helps, you should notice a Internet surfing speed increase.

After adding new entrys to the hosts file . You MUST REBOOT !

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
