NetGear users... keep your DNS "fix" for 10.3.9?

    While 10.3.9 fixed the horrible problem(s) that existed in 10.3.8 for NetGear users, I've noticed what appears to me a minor, but annoying problem, after removing the DNS "fix".

    iTunes store takes forever to load! It marches along slowly and then gets really stodgy (not sure if that's a real word, but it means "stubborn" or "resistant to progress", to me) right at the end, taking around 30 seconds or so to finish.

    I reinserted the DNS number "fix" and now iTunes loads up like ZING!

    Can anyone confirm if this problem is consistent with just NetGear users or others as well? :confused:

    Pops right up for me with 10.3.9. I am however using an Asante router and Apple Airport Express for wireless. FAR more reliable then the junk Netgear puts out. Went through 2 Netgear wireless routers in 1 year. Had enough of that and went with an Asante router for $30+ and the Airport Express for $100+.
