Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
This is usually a network problem. How are you connecting to the net - wired or wireless, dial-up? Do you share the connection with several computers (router)? If you have a router, try rebooting it and check if there is new firmware available for it. Try disconnecting from the router and connecting directly to the modem (cable or DSL). Does this change the load time? Please note that cable bandwidth is shared by all of the users on the node. If your router keeps a log, check if you have been having someone trying to lock up your network (denial of service, for example).
Another thing to check is the computer's network driver and connection itself. Check if the cable is good by swapping it with a new one (ethernet RJ-45 for wired). Use one of the network speed tests, http://www.speedtest.net, with both the direct connection and through your router. Check the Device Manager (Control Panel, Hardware, Device Manager) or Dell's web site for updated drivers.
You may need a new router or to use a wired connection if you are using a wireless network. (Wireless connections can get intermittent disconnections or need reboots due to interference from other wireless devices.) Alternatively, if none of the other computers in your network are experiencing a slow-down when you do a speed test, the network connection on the motherboard may be failing. A PCI (card slot inside the desktop) or USB ethernet adapter will replace that function. These are available at most computer parts stores.
I hope this helps.
