Below is a conversation I had on the PCWorks mailserv. When I removed
the protocol 

Microsoft TCP / IP Version 6

from my LAN connection, my problem went away.

I don't know for sure whether this solution wil work in your case - I
didn't compare wireless with wired connection.


Yes, that is the protocol that should be removed.

It does cause flakiness in certain browsers and systems.
