- Yahoo group web site very slow?
Re: Yahoo group web site very slow?

Seems to work OK On this XP machine. I never had too much trouble anyway with the Yahoo Groups pages I visit from tine-to-time, ie UKUwaves and RSGBTech. Other groups, however, did take a long time to load, so I assume that was a local caching thing
Anyway, using Google's 8888 DNS does appear to have made it all even faster

It’s done in the PC’s network adapter settings and so will apply to any browser you use – see http://www.howtogeek.com/164981/how-to-switch-to-opendns-or-google-dns-to-speed-up-web-browsing/ for a step by step guide.
How and where do we do this :

That’s exactly the effect I had and is, as Murray comments, probably due to the BT DNS servers taking a very long time to find the Yahoo Ad and image servers – try changing the DNS on one PC from “find DNS automatically” to use 188.8.131.52 and see what difference it makes.

Hi Noel an interesting comment. I am on the BT server for mail (not
BT-Yahoo) I find the on any group web-site the initial welcome page (with a
blank picture) appears immediately ....that says not a DNS problem to
me.....but wadderIknow :-)) The functions, most obvious by the correct
picture banner loading then, takes 85 seconds to appear and respond to
clicks. From then on response it reasonable. There is no internet activity
during this wait time. There is no variation in this by time of day so it is
unlikely to be congestion (I have a 50MB/s line)
Email message distribution seems fine but I get digests, though some other
groups show quite long delays distributing postings.
My thought is that Yahoo have removed server hardware bandwidth to make
their revenue earning operations seem more attractive for sale
(Cynical....what me??) Maybe they just want to discourage Groups.
