    I'm running Win7 x64 and love it so far. However, I'm seeing some oddities when I browse using IE8.
    For example: if I navigate to www.yahoo.com, it'll error out and not connect. If I hit refresh immediately, it still won't connect. If I wait a few mins then hit F5, it'll connect and run great. But it's that initial connection that is a PITA. I'm using Verizon's FiOS at 20Mbps down/5Mbps up so it's not my connection ;)

    Any ideas?

    There's your problem ;) Use Firefox.

    Wildew. Will report back.

    Update: I should've thought of that. But anyway, yea, Firefox is running much better. Thanks.

    Firefox... If you want to use most of your internet speed use Google Chrome. It runs much faster and is nicer than old boring firefox.
