Hello, my father has a problem with his laptop (Dell Inspiron 9400 with Vista)'s internet (wireless), and asked me to solve it. The problem is: When browsing the web, internet explorer says for each page some seconds "waiting for http://". It's not long, but probably long enough to annoy my father. (And to be honest; it would annoy me too ) I have a laptop with exact the same configuration exept another CPU and another screen, and I don't have the problem mentioned above. I tried installing several browsers like Firefox, Safari etc., but they'll have the same problem. We have a 15 mbit/s download speed and a 0.5 mbit/s upload speed. When I go to speedtest.net and select the nearest server, then it gives on my laptop and my father's laptop both the same down&upload results, although, I have 22 ms ping and my father 3005. When I do tracert google.com on my laptop, it gives 17 steps and at my fathers laptop only 1 step. (but they end both with the same step) I tried disabling his firewalln changed DNS settings, flush his DNS configuration, scanned his PC with different scanners etc. but nothing helps... In multiplayer games like CS:S, Vietcong,... his ping is normal again... Can someone help me to solve this? Thanks in advance!
