    Hi all,

    I'm "running" XP64. Wait, don't leave yet!

    A strange occurance I regularly run into and find very annoying is that when I type in a web address, the webpage refuses to load. It shows "Looking up <web site URL>..." in the status bar, which typically means there's something wrong with the connection, but it's just fine. If I wait about 10 seconds and reload the page, it comes up almost instantly.

    I'm running a cable modem from a P5N32-SLI Deluxe SE (yes, w/ core 2 ;)). The cables themselves going into the D-Link Wireless Gamerlounge router are good, and the cable modem itself hasn't ever had a problem. In fact, I haven't ever had to reset this thing other than for router firmware upgrades.

    All that said, I'm 99% positive it's a problem with Windows XP 64 since I've never had a problem running XP SP2 on other machines using this router. Thing is, I'm not sure where to begin -- anyone have any ideas? They'd be appreciated.

    Thanks for reading.

    Reinstall your browser software.

    Remember XP64 still is very buggy.

    Yeah -- it happens with Firefox *and* IE though.

    That said, I'll probably just downgrade the OS back to WinXP Home or something. I'm rather disappointed with how XP64 has worked out so far. =(

    I sure hope vista can handle 32b emulation better than XP64 does, otherwise I'm not even going to bother buying it.

    Thanks for the reply.

    64bit Vista is wonderful, I'd thoroughly recommend the upgrade to RC1.
