    I decided to compare the differences between the PC that works with the PC having problems. <br>I found that the working PC did not have IPV6 enabled. So I disabled it. Did not fix. Found that <br>the working PC was using the router as the DNS. So I changed the DNS server on the bad PC.<br>revooted the system and it still had the problems. I then noticed that the bad PC was using the killer<br>ethernet card and the good PC was using the intel ethernet card. So I moved the cable from the killer to the intel<br>network jack. After rebooting the PC it seems to be working. <br>Not sure why. The bad PC has been using the killer ethernet for as long as I can remember.<br>PS both PC have the identical hardware.<br>

    Some how it lost my previous reply. I thought switching from the killer Ethernet to the Intel Ethernet fixed the problem. But
    today the DNS problem is back.

    If you haven't install latest version of network card driver.

    Perform a clean boot state to find out if any one of the startup services or programs causing the network problem.

    We are talking about two different network cards and drivers. They both have the same problem. After a reboot the browsers work fine. The next day firefox and chrome are very slow to open a web page. Edge will open the same web page very fast. When firefox starts to open the web page it displays looking up hostname. Isn't the same code that converts the hosname to and ip address used by all browsers? If so why is edge fast and firefox and chrome are slow?
    It is difficult to do a clean boot and see if a startup service is causing the problem when it could take overnight for the problem to show up.
