LisaG: Thanks very much for the quick reply. I just emptied the cache and placed the Tab 8.9 next to my computer (both located about 3 unobstructed feet from my modem/router. I then brought up an article in the wsj that had several comments. I clicked simultaneously on the "comments" tab on the computer mouse and tapped the "comments" on the Tab. It took about 5 secs on the computer and 25-30 secs on the Tab for comments to come up (wi-fi showed the max 4 bars). Can't figure out what the problem is - that's why I was wondering about the ics upgrade helping. Wonder if a Toshiba excite 10 with a quad processor would solve the problem. Any thoughts? Again, thank you! Ted N.
