Internet connection on one computer is slower than the rest

One of my WinXP computers is experiencing major slow downs when visiting a particular website but this problem doesn't exist on other computers on the same network. I think there's a problem in my network connection between my computer and my router.

"Boot up with a Live-CD and browse the same websites. If they load at the same speed as the other PC's, then you can rule out faulty hardware. It's always a good idea to rule out hardware as a first step, to avoid hitting your head against the wall in the end.

I can suggest Knoppix. Its a bit techie if you don't know it, but well worth learning IMHO, an indispensable tool for troubleshooting many issues."

I'd run "tracert" if I were you, in order to find the bottleneck.
