For some reason, whenever I boot up my comp, I won't get internet for the first minute or two. This isn't an issue with either the laptop or my sister's desktop, just my computer.

Sometimes, if I don't use the browser, any browser, for a while, my browsers won't load any pages, it's either stuck on resolving host or waiting for cache. Once I try loading the page a few more times, the browser will work fine. This applies for both IE and Chrome.

My internet is not dead because I'm not getting DC'ed from games, and I can still join rooms and play flawlessly whilst the web pages are failing to load.

Edit: I'm running Time Warner Road Runner w/ a Linksys Router.

Edit2: Okay, so the internet just dies on me while browsing sometimes, but my games run fine. I don't DC or see any lag, nor do I get disconnected from MSN/AIM. If I open up BitComet, all the pages load and the net works fine until it dies again.

Kind of sounds like your computer is just getting slow on boot to get the internet up and running. You can try and disable non essential startup services in msconfig to speed up that.

As for the webpages, try removing all of your cookies and temporary internet files to see if that fixes it.

I forgot to mention, I NEVER had this issue with DSL. I even compared it a few times during the month I had both, due to not being able to cancel to the DSL.

I looked at your sys specs. Try these for getting your system info:http://www.hwinfo.com/download32.html, http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html, http://www.cpuid.com/pcwizard.php, http://blackbox.hardwaremania.com/en/home, http://majorgeeks.com/AIDA32_-_Personal_System_Information_d181.html, and http://majorgeeks.com/EVEREST_Free_Edition_d4181.html ;these are but a few and free.:)

Yep, I would start with what Hybrid Theory said. Then I would make sure I had the latest drivers for my network adapter and the latest firmware for my router. Also, try using something like OpenDNS (it is free), here:http://www.opendns.com/

My son in Texas, has Road Runner and he has trouble every once in a while; they keep telling him, he is at the fringe( to far out ).

Goodluck...:)

Thank you for the help with my specs, another member has also PM'ed me with a link to software. I'll get to it whenever I don't feel like procrastinating or being lazy. :D

My dad's laptop, sister's laptop, and sister's desktop don't have this problem at all!
