      Does anyone else get this problem?

      I have both Sky ADSL and Virgin Cable. Both are about the same performance and it's handy to have the two, to compare performance.

      I get this problem, though, on the Sky, that a dozen times a day ( give or take ) I will click on a URL in my browser and it will immediately return with "page unavailable". All I have to do is click again and the page loads just fine, but the problem is bugging me. There is no delay at all in IE displaying the error message, so my first thoughts were that something was returning a "not found" message. It is just as if the DNS server returns a "page not found". In fact that was my first experiment, to use a global DNS, but, nope, that's not the problem.

      Through exactly the same equipment on to the Virgin cable, I never get this problem.

      Anyone any thoughts?
