    Dial Up ISP
    Windows XP

    Sometimes when attempting to access a website, I get the message

    The operation timed out when attempting to contact www.blahblah.com

    Can this time setting be changed so that the browser's attempts are longer
    and I don't get this most annoying message?

    Thanks!!

    Yes. I think you can. You could type in your browser interface
    'about:config' but that may be too much for some. I think.
