TPN - S L O W

TPN have moved address of their servers. The new ISP has not registered their site with all the DNS servers. Until they all get updated most requests get routed to the old server, time out then go off on a different search until they locate it.

This is the cause of the considerable time delay to some sites.

The temporary cure is to go into CONTROL PANEL then NETWORK CONNECTIONS then right-click on your current network adapter (adapter properties) and choose PROPERTIES.

Go down to Internet Protocol Version 4. Highlight this then choose PROPERTIES.

Down the bottom if your DNS server is set to Automatic or 192.168.0.1 then choose 'Use the following DNS server'.

Set the Primary to 8.8.8.8
Set the secondary top 8.8.4.4

These are Google DNS servers.

OK and CLOSE.

You need to do this on the individual computers.

I got a 20+ fold speed increase.
