    Any idea of how to fix? DNS server? Network set up? trojan, I have spent hours on this and no solution.
    I ran DNSchanger, configured my DNS servers to match the ip address 10.0.1.5 and Router 10.0.1.1

    I have this problem at my dad's house in Spain, he has a 5000kbps (5meg) connection and when I'm downloading files it's super fast but loading a page takes forever! I tried OpenDNS but no luck.

    Same here, why don't you try OpenDNS?

    How do you know the connection is fast? Advertised, file download? Are you running wireless?

    I have a 10 Mb/s connection at home, and depending on the wireless channel it can be really slow at times.

    If you're getting fast file downloads I'd look at the DNS fixes suggested.

    10.4 Flush your DNS Cache in Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger

    Type the following command in the Terminal:
    lookupd -flushcache.

    So I open terminal, then select new command enter ( lookupd -flushcache )?

    Yes that's what I have my MBP with 10.4. Work DNS server is a bit messed up.

    After you run it, in the future, if you need to run it again, just open terminal, and press the up arrow until you get to the same command you used.

    Still no change. I had a negative full MacScan test, reset DNS, get over 5k Download speeds, but have to refresh pages to get them to load.

    Uninstall MacScan. There are no viruses on OSX.

    Have you tried it in new user account?
