    I hope someone will be able to tell me what is wrong because
    it'sdriving me crackers! Two wired desktop PCs and one wireless laptop
    all work fine in our home network (3com wireless router): filesharing
    OK and internet access fine. The other laptop will not allow file
    sharing, no matter what I do, and will load very few websites. It's so
    slow, I could hurl it through the window in fury!!

    It is a 3 month old Dell Inspiron 9400 INTEL T2300 (1.66GHz) 981 MHz
    with 1 GB RAM on XP home edition.

    Firewall is turned off and sharing allowed. Using AVG.

    I have tried both IE and Firefox and both are v slow, even loading
    Google as homepage.

    Please someone tell mewhat I have missed!
