    Help can not display web page & internet speed very slow!

    I am constanly getting "can not display webpage" on internet explorer 8 i can connect to the net ok i can view webpages ok put throughout the day i have trouble with web pages i also use google search and that comes up saying " dns error can not find server " my connection is very slow about 1.6mb using netgear wireless modem i used to get 2.4mb when using a usb modem and never really had any problems displaying webpages!
    Is it normal to get a faster speed using usb? & not have problems with web pages using usb ?
    is it my service provider giving my a rubbish connection or using a wireless modem or my pc which is pretty new ?please help very frustrating

    I can't use my usb modem as it's not compatible with vista,so i'm just using my wireless netgear now i was thinking maybe buy a new usb modem thats compatible with vista just to see if i get the same problem but when i used to use it on my old pc i never did then or would that be a waste of money?

    Yeah thats the one. Is your router losing synch? Is the DSL light on when you can't connect?

    Often get the cannot display error but then if you refresh the page it opens ok if a little slow. I am on IE8 as well

    No, flashing means they're sending/receiving stuff.

    Have you tried a different browser such as ]Opera?
