    my internet conenction is 1 meg broadband and is excellent for all the usual browsing using firefox. However if i try to get onto that famous auction site it takes ages to load if at all...the same in IE so does'nt matter on the browser. I have cleared cache and tried .com and .co.uk but its always the same. Then when it does load its full of errors and has basically no formatting.

    Anyone have any ideas cause its getting on my nerves :(

    Have you tried sticking www. in front of it because when I leave it out the page won't load for me. Maybe you could contact your ISP?

    BTW, I don't think is the right forum for this sort of question.
