      Package - Mid
      IP address - 90.217.69.xxx

      Only been on Sky for 3 weeks but pleased so far within the limitations of a long line to the exchange. I have, however, noticed that many web pages have been taking a long time to load or even have to be refreshed. Having read the excellent suggestions on this thread I've changed my DNS settings to the OpenDNS ones and so far there's been a definite improvement. Thanks guys!

This makes it difficult to trace any faults on the line.

      Cheers Isitme. Tried the test socket, and my connection speed is up to 5Mb, which is what my line should be doing considering I'm a little over a kilometer from the exchange. Going to give it a few hours and see if the IP profile rights itself. Going to have to look into rewiring the house then, because even before this started happening we'd only be getting 2/3Mb.

      I am having a horrendous problem with my pages taking forever to load. My download speed is perfect so I dont understand why my pages take ages to load.

      Many thanks for this. I am going through it on my computer, but can I ask a really stupid question (I am not good with computers) - how do I know what DNS addresses to add?

      Re: Slow page loading times

      Thanks, as mentioned above I am just lost as to what the DNS numbers are to add, where can I find what the DNS numbers are?

      Thanks for your help.

      Follow the instructions given in the link provided by NR and myself. Click on the blue letters with your mouse and this will take you to the Open DNS page. Click on Computer, then on the OS you are using, follow the tutorial and there you will find the DNS addresses. They are actually shown bottom right of the first page and start 208.

      Re: Slow page loading times

      As a matter of interest, I am using Open DNS by changing my settings via control panel. Is it possible to change the DNS settings in my router (Ver 1 Netgear)? They appear to be hard coded in the router.
