    Loading websites takes about 20 seconds in both Safari & Firefox. I am getting my full 3Mbps download speed when downloading large files. I have done the disconnected/reconnect of all cables that BellSouth recommends. I have cleared all of the cache files using utility software. Does anyone have any other recommendations that I can try, other than contacting the phone company?

    Did this suddenly occur? Is your machine otherwise performing at full speed? :)

    as far as I can remember. It's not like it happened while I was sitting at the computer. But I had been noticing slow page loads. I even clocked them in Safari & Firefox to compare, it's about 30 seconds in both. My computer seems to be running fine otherwise.

    This morning I relocated my DSL modem and plugged it into my AirPort Express. Now pages are loading in a snap.

    I guess it's fixed for now. Thanks for your reply though.

    My BellSouth, err, "The New AT&T" DSL was acting up a couple of nights ago. I got frustrated and stopped trying, and the next day it was behaving well again.
