I recently returned from a vacation and fired up the Mac pro. However, when I run Firefox, I get a 10 second delay now as I move from site to site. What happens is I click on the Nikon Cafe icon and in the lower left it says "Looking up Nikoncafe.com"....and does nothing for 5 - 10 seconds. Then the DSL modem light begins to blink and boom it's there. I click on another site and I get the same delay. It does not sound like much, but when I jump around on several sites, the slow down is remarkable. As Larry always suggests, I repaired disk permissions without any change. I rebooted and no change. I rebooted the DSL modem...no change. I downloaded Camino and it acts the same....so I think it is in the network interface...but that all look proper and is confirmed OK by the system. Weird in that it worked prior to me shutting the system down for two weeks. Any ideas on what might cause this? THANKS for any suggestions and help.
