    I just switched to an Airport Extreme v5, and I'm having trouble figuring out why pages take a long time to START loading. On google chrome, every time I type in a web address and hit enter it says "Sending request..." for 2-10 seconds, and then the page starts to load. I've never experienced something like this before, so I'm wondering if you guys have any suggestions for a fix.

    So far I've tried it on multiple computers (macbook pro, PCs with win7) ethernet only, multiple browsers, different DNS servers (it seems like a slow DNS lookup), disabling IPv6, setting IPs statically instead of using DHCP.

    I'm unfamiliar with the AEBS so I wouldn't really know what else to do. Thanks for the help!

    How far away is the router from your devices?
