Oh, you can also disable ipv6 just for Firefox. In the address bar, type about :config Then search for network.dns.disableIPv6 and double click on the line to change the value ...

    Thanks for all the help. I have disabled IPv6 and all seems okay. Signal stength is still about 35 - 40% unless I am on top of the sender in which case it only rises to about 50% but it's still working.

    Would like to upgrade to 9.10 but not a clean install. I have saved my office files but would prefer to avoid loosing various settings and some new software. In fact I was going to ask about making a new cd with all the settings saved as a back up. Suppose this should be on another forum...........
