Safari/firefox resolving address slowly

Safari/firefox resolving address slowly

Safari/firefox resolving address slowly

Hi guys/girls,

Our CEO has decided to trade in his IBM notebook and got himself a MacBook Air.

Problem we are getting is that we have two sites so he connects to two different wireless connections. In site A his macbook takes about 10 seconds just to resolve google or any other address. On the same connection if he uses his IBM its instant. We also have a second users at site A with a mac and PC and they are gettin the same results!

But if he goes to site B and connects to the wireless he is resolving address on the macbook instantly.

I'm think possibly something to do with DNS on the mac?? I'm really not a mac users so not sure where to trouble shoot this one.

Any help will be much appreciated.

PS we've tried both firefox and safari and the results are the same.

Thanks again

RE: Safari/firefox resolving address slowly

You are right about DNS...If his laptop is set up with locations vs automatic this would be your answer as it is likly the dns setting from site A are interfering with site b. If it is set to automatic then maybe the setting for each site are identical? same wireless access point, same network name, etc...confusing the mac who is trying to use "old info".
