I find Google ( search to be so slow in the evenings that it is basically inaccessible. I can access Google services, like Gmail, Calendar, and Docs, ok, but when I enter into my browser address bar, the browser just keeps trying, but nothing happens, or the page starts to appear, but painfully slowly, over the course of several minutes, and I have to give-up. This happens every evening, but there is no such problem in the morning or afternoon! I use Firefox, but the same problem occurs when I try IE, so it can't be a browser problem. And it can't be a general connection problem, because I have no similar problem accessing other sites at the same time. This problem also applies to doing searches via the toolbar when it is set to use I access the internet via a wireless router, and there is no one else using the network.

Does anyone have any ideas?!

Maybe it is an ISP issue. You could try using OpenDNS and seeing if that makes it load quicker:

Thanks very much – that seems to have done the trick! :-)
