I recently upgraded my DSL package from 3MB download to 6MB download. I initially wanted 12MB download but I was just a tad too far from the box to get 12MB consistently. My ISP uses AT&T's network and their U-verse gateway router (Pace 5268AC). The speed tests I've ran show the expected improvement over the same tests I ran earlier with my 3MB connection. The problem is the initial (finding and) loading of the web sites I visit. They are painfully slow. Even the internal configuration site (192.168.1.254) takes 15-20 seconds to finally show up in the browser (Chrome). Before I upgraded, I had slower download speeds, but the sites were found and the download started right away. Now I have faster download speeds, but it takes at least 15 seconds for the browser to find the site and start the download. After that, sites load very fast.
I'm thinking it is a setting someplace in the router but I've not a clue which one. I can't imagine it being the computer or a NIC setting since neither of those changed after the upgrade.
Anyone have a idea as to what I might check?
IE seems to load the sites noticeably faster. PINGing the sites (e.g., www.codeproject.com) also produces a plethora of "Request timed out" responses.

Did you try using another LAN port on your router?
Did you try resetting the LAN Interface on windows? The troubleshooter can do that, alternatively you can uninstall the driver in device manager and then hit "Scan for hardware changes" to reinstall it.
Something else you can try is executing "ping -t www.example.com" to see if the issue really comes from DNS lookups / your modem and not your browser.
Could just as well be an issue with your browser, which this test should show by replying within a few milliseconds or if it takes just as long as visiting pages your windows install.
So... I've been known for years for the amount of coffee I drink, all day, every day. At home, I have well water which I like, but at work - it is city water and that I don't like. So, I filter it through ground coffee.
On my desk at work, I have a collection of cups: the one I had when I started there, a gift from my wife with my daughters picture on it, a cup from a friend when the visited their son in the Marines, and my current cup: one that looks like a prescription bottle. Most of them are in the 8 to 12 ounce range.
Well, today I got a new cup.. nothing fancy. Simple white design. But, its 60 ounces !
On Monday morning, during our regularly scheduled meeting, I plan to enter the room with the new cup and listen to jaws hit the floor.
