    Network Help

    I have 5 computers on a network. 3 are wireless and 2 are wired.

    We can download at rocket speed but it takes forever to connect to AIM or load web pages. Any idea's?

    Sounds like one or more of your DNS servers might be misconfigured. The machines try to query the first DNS server, wait a little and timeout, then hit the second or third server. Thus the delay. Check the settings with your ISP and verify you have 'em entered properly on your router/NAT box.

    I've had 2 wireless laptops connect on my Linksys Router and 3 desktops connected, all 5 worked fine without any issues, AIM included.

    Might want to check if there are any settings in your router configuration that might affect this, I doubt ports is the problem, maybe look into your Router's support site, there are many faqs/knowledgebase or even community forums for specific routers you can check on.

    Good luck.
