Hi guys hope im doing this right, just registered!

I recently got a new router, from BT, and replaced a switch with a cisco one. (which I don't think is the problem, as I have tested without the switch and it still times out) I only ever really notice it when im browsing on the web on any site. I use a wired connections I have not noticed this on any other machine how ever the timeouts are random and streaming/downloading seems to work fine. Any ideas, suggestions?

Thanks Matt

thanks for the fast reply, I have put in the commands and turned off my firewall, would it be ok to leave at least windows firewall on instead? dont really feel like leaving my computer on too long without any! I will play around with it and see if i still time out it happens randomly so hopefully can let you know if it has worked, or not.

Thanks again Matt

Try getting and running Steve Gibson's DNS benchmark. It is more than possible that a (for you) unreliable or slow DNS server is causing the problem. The download page for the utility gives basic instruction for fixing the problem.
