Greetings, I dont usually frequent this forum but I figured it was about the best place to get help on a problem that has plagued me for over a year. I have had dsl through bellsouth and noticed that usually when I connect it takes anywhere from 2 to 20 minutes to actually do anything. I use aim, along with my web browser and both will not pull anything but naturally the connection says that I am connected. Eventually if I am lucky it will begin working. This also happens when I leave it on overnight, or idle for a couple of hours. I get good fast service but the 20 minute wait sometimes seems to be a bother. I for a while thought it might be a virus or something or is this just something you have to live with. If anyone knows what might be my problem or has a question on my setup please ask. I am just hoping to resolve this issue. Thank you.
