Difficulties connecting to Internet

  Linton2 09:16 22 Aug 03

It seems to take a long time to connect to the Internet on my home computer. When I click on the icon, the screen comes up blank and I get a little message in the bottom left had corner saying dectecting proxy settings. It takes a long time but eventually I do get on to the Internet.
Is there any thing that I can do to speed this up.
My computer is a Packard Bell and I have Windows XP.

Bringing you in from the cold and surprised you where missed. You just need to go to Internet options and click the Connections tab, click LAN Settings and untick Automatically Detect Settings......sorted.

Tried your suggestion. Things are still the same. It takes a good 2 or 3 minutes before I can get on to the Internet.
