App extremely slow when Internet is ON


T

This is not really a VB6 question but my application (written in VB6)
connects to SQL Server (on the same machine) database. All is working
fine except when the internet connection is on, any attempt to connect
to the database takes extremely long. In fact this is not even related
to my app. Even if I create and test an ODBC connection the same thing
is observed. The ODBC connection works very well when I am not connected
to the internet but time outs when the internet is ON. I have two
wireless internet connections, one uses the LAN port and the other is a
USB device. Problem occurs with both.

How can I fix this?

What name are you connecting to for the server?
Does using localhost make any difference?
What are your DNS servers set to?

Yes. Changing to localhost did the trick!

Thanks!
